Music is an amazing healing tool and one that accompanied me throughout treatment as well a recovery and life before, during and after. Everyone is different and some of you may feel it was more healing to have silence but I believe in music for the mood and I wanted to use this space to list some of the tracks that I have found helpful for lots of different reasons.

Some are classics, some need to be turned right up, some might not be your cup of tea! Music is a personal thing but if you want to use some of these as ideas for iTunes playlists for relaxation, inspiration, reflection or just to bust some moves, this list may be helpful!

If you want to share any music that you have found meaningful, let me know!
