I have always been a big believer that music can heal. There is something so powerful about hearing messages set to music. Music can put you in a good mood when you are feeling sad, inspire you to realize your worth, or simply help you confirm that you are not alone in your struggles. That is just some of the examples of how impactful music can be. If you haven’t already discovered it, we have a special self-love Spotify playlist for the Love Myself 2020 Challenge.
There are about 100 songs on this playlist. That’s a lot of inspiring messages just waiting on your ears to hear them and your soul believe them. There may be some that you have heard before, and I’m sure there are some you haven’t heard as well.
A playlist this large may seem overwhelming to dig into, so I’m going to help you with that. In today’s post, I’m going to be breaking down this playlist into categories and sharing some songs in each one. This way you’ll have a starting point to reference. I’ve been listening to this playlist and it has been so refreshing. I highly recommend putting this self-love Spotify playlist on shuffle and listening to it throughout your day, week, and even the rest of the month.
