Music and Playlists
People who have experienced a significant loss often find it hard to express their emotions. Research shows that music can significantly reduce grief symptoms, and it can aid in helping to remember your loved one. Music can sometimes convey the complexity of our feelings better than words. Creating a playlist that can help you through your grief is very useful. You can also create a playlist that captures the essence of your loved one by including songs by your loved one’s favorite artists or that remind you of your loved one.
There are many resources out there that have playlists available for almost any type of loss. Spotify has some lists put together – you can visit Spotify.com.
Another source I have reviewed contains 21 favorite songs that can help you wherever you are in your journey.
What’s Your Grief (WYG) has two volumes of playlists along with multiple comments where people have included their favorite lists.
