So I’ve got to admit the last year has been a bit shit. Not as shit as for many, of course. I’m still here, (relatively) healthy, not lost anyone close (though not seen a family member for 15 months), still working, just about, and for now.
But a year plus of living alone during the pandemic has been less than ideal, battling addictions, loneliness, insomnia and more has been less than fun (and best not mention potential effects of Brexit on a remainer expat, or are they all related…)?.
But the point of the post is not to be negative. I’ve found a lot of comfort in instrumental music. Here are four examples of instrumentals I discovered over the last 12 months that have helped a lot. Very different genres, but all provide their bit of comfort. Fancy adding to the list? I could do with more of this kind of thing and I don’t know a better place to ask. I suspect a decent Spotify playlist could emerge.
