Like most humans in the world right now, all of us here at Pandora + SiriusXM are dealing with the anxiety of what our world will look like once this whole coronavirus pandemic ends. Some of the things that we're currently doing are as follows:
Feel free to share how you're dealing with our evolving world. We're here to share music AND listen to you. Stay safe everyone! 🎵
I was just wondering why I haven't heard anything about Pandora doing anything to contribute to the Covid 19 crisis? With all due respect, a lot of people are quarantined right now, and we all know that music plays a big part in alleviating anxiety and boredom, among other things. Broadway is livestreaming shows, Movies are being released early so that they can played in people's homes, mortgages, student debts, and utility bills are being out on hold because of the crisis, and yet Pandora is still going to take 5 dollars out my account for Premium? I love my services, but maybe it's time you guys rethink your priorities and give back to the community.
I'm definitely trying to look at the brighter side of everything that is affecting us in this great big world @ErickPandora.
Grateful that I have the opportunity to work remotely and that I get to work with some amazing people (@AdamPandora, @AlyssaPandora and @ErickPandora ). Who constantly interject comedy and great conversation into my day while we're all at home.
I'm also grateful to have this time with my dog. She's 14 years old and having this extra time with her feels so important, especially now.
I recommend and encourage everyone to join the Community Chat - it's really a great place to get some new musical suggestions or talk with folks of about your favorite albums or artists. You'll see me plugging in my 2-cents here and there.
I hope everyone else out there is taking good care of themselves and staying strong. 🙌🏻

I am a christian (not popular in today's world). But I encourage myself everyday, not just with music, but I read my Bible twice a day (morning and evening). I also try to pray everyday. And during this time I am praying for the world and especially for those who are sick. We are living in perilous times. Back on 9/11/01 America came together, but it was short lived. Hopefully this will bring us together again. Hopefully this time it will last. This world is filled with so much hate, so many wars, so many suicides. We need to really come together as a Nation. Our world is in a chaotic mess. We can make a difference by not just loving our family and helping our family. But by loving and helping our neighbors. That is a starting point, (my personal opinion).

Life has been very different to say the least, @ErickPandora. 💡
I think we're all doing our best to remain positive, and spread good energy during these tough times. Much like @TannerPandora, I've been regularly practicing gratitude instead of letting this pandemic get the best of me.
It feels like a great time to learn new skills, read, listen to music, connect with friends and family virtually, knock out those things on your to-do list, and to practice self-care.
Feel free to share any playlists that you're tuned into in Playlist Swap. 🎼
Sending everyone positive vibes ✨as we navigate through these uncertain times.
Stay safe, be well, and be kind. ❣️
How is COVID 19 Effecting Your Stress Levels ?
For me it's crazy because we haven't had anything like this in hundreds of years so it's stressful you know
But post what you think will HELP &what your story is😁

Super stressful times @JAYDADDY. Just have to remember to be nice to each other everyday, we're all coping the best way we can.
I'm in the process of making a 100 song dance party remix playlist on Pandora. I figure we need more happy in these months and energized up-beat songs are kind of a great way to go.
I'm also meditating a lot more. Half the time I'm using some great stations on Pandora like Meditation Radio or Meditation Spa Radio. The other half of the time I use a meditation app that offers guided meditation practices.
How about yourself, what have you been doing to beat the stress?
@JAYDADDY we are living in very stressful times, not only as individuals but also as a nation. What I am about to suggest is not very popular these day's but for me it is an absolute must (It works, at least for me). I read the bible twice a day and I also pray. I also listen to my Pandora music list that has now grown to over 460 songs. I also have been keeping busy with outdoor projects in my backyard. Re-doing the screen house, painting. Just something to stay busy and occupied. Well take care and stay safe.
I've been trying to keep busy. I listen to a lot of music, study foreign language, and play games a lot lately. So far I'm keeping it together, though some days are tough. I'll be glad when I can go out again.
@Bacon Definitely a new normal for us all. I'm glad to hear that you're doing well. 😎
@Veritastar Thanks for sharing! For me, I try to focus on staying in a healthy / positive mental space. I've also been doing things that I bring me joy, even if they are small things. Some days are tougher than others but we'll get through this! ❣️🎶
Listening to my Pandora music playlist ( which has now grown to over 510 songs) playing with my two cats Buddy and Miss Kitty. And just doing some fixer upper projects in the yard. Take care and stay safe.
I have a very large appetite with music, however it stops when it comes to Rap. I just never could get myself to like it. So during this Covid-19 I have been growing my playlist to well over 500 songs. Well take care and stay safe.
