Feel-good music

Good morning, beauties! I woke up today feeling pretty meh (due to weird love-type shit which I’ll explain one day in a later post) but when I realized I was home alone for once, I could enjoy myself! There’s something so incredibly peaceful about having an empty house that’s all yours to play in for the day. I think I might actually get stuff done today ;)

Before I get into my possible to do list, I want to share a little anxiety-buster with you: singing!

I love to sing. I like to think I have a pretty good voice, but in all honesty it can just be super fun and a healthy way to wake up. I’m a morning person, but I’m still working on the waking up part har har. I’ve read a few articles about the benefits of singing, such as: working the muscles of your body (yes, even when sitting!), controlling your breathing, lowering blood pressure, increasing blood circulation, etc. It’s a lovely little workout that makes you feel super good about yourself and life. It doesn’t matter if you don’t sound like Beyonce, as long as you enjoy it, you should do it. If you want to read up more about the benefits of singing, here’s a decent link: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/10168914/All-together-now-singing-is-good-for-your-body-and-soul.html

Along with singing, I’ve noticed that the right kind of music can really lift me up (even when I’m feeling downright awful). I would stay away from sad/heartbreaking songs that might influence your mood in a much more negative way. As beautiful and magical as Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” is, it’s probably not going to help you feel happier. So here is a small playlist of the songs that work for me on meh mornings!

“Love Me or Let Me Go”- Avery

“Go Screw Yourself”- Avery

“Postcard”- Bridgit Mendler

“Anklebiters”- Paramore

“Wings”- Little Mix

“Cityscapes”- Katie Costello

“Dark Horse”- Katy Perry

“Pearl”- Katy Perry

“Us”- Regina Spektor

As for my possible to do list for the day, yesterday J (best friend/ex/?) brought over pots of flowers that I want to plant so I should probably get going on that. Then I shall do the dishes, tidy up my room, finish up my laundry, get my appointments figured out, and… I don’t know. I guess, leave some room in my schedule for some bad-assery and magical shit?

Peace out, you majestic creatures! Keep on doing you. ♥

What songs are on your feel-good playlist? Do you enjoy singing? What song have you been playing on repeat lately? (For me it’s “Empty” by The Story So Far) What is on your majestic to do list this spring morning?
