Music Therapy Mondays - My Self-Care Playlist

As a music lover, I use it as therapy. The American Association of Music Therapy defines music therapy as "an established healthcare profession that uses music to address physical, emotional, cognitive social needs of individuals of all ages. Music therapy improves the quality of life for persons who are well and meets the needs of children and adults with disabilities of illnesses."

Here's my Self-Love Playlist. 

1. Masterpiece - Jazmine Sullivan  

As the sun shines on all of my glory my flaws don’t look bad at all. What was I so afaid of?

2. Video- India Arie 

This song got me thru middle school. 

Put your salt on the shelf
Go on and love yourself.

3. Holy - Jamila Woods 

Alone doesn't equal lonely. I really enjoy my solitude.

Woke this morning with my mind,
set on loving me.

4. Q.U.E.E.N - Janelle Monae (feat. Erykah Badu) 

 

Even if it makes them uncomfortable I’m gonna love who I am.

5. Cleva- Erykah Badu 

This song will definitely have you feeling yourself.  

 

Said I’m alright with me.

6. I Am Light - India Arie 

 

I am light, I am light.

7. Be Happy - Mary J. Blige

  

How can I love someone love someone else if I can’t love myself enough to know when it’s time to let go.

8. Happy Being Me -Angie Stone 

 

I am so happy loving me.

9. Higher Than This - Lesdi

This song gets me in the groove. 

I am connected to the one therefore I AM
One to rise above all the ugliness
Evolve into a world of selflessness
I can see love and no love
can be higher than this

10. Stronger - Des'ree

This is a classic! 

You gotta be bad, you gotta be bold
You gotta be wiser, you gotta be hard
You gotta be tough, you gotta be stronger

11. I Can't Stand the Rain - Missy Elliot 

For when you need to feel fly, super flyyyy. 

Me I’m superfly super duper fly

I'm Bossy - Kelis 

You can't NOT feel yourself while listening to Bossy, hell even if you have a boss and work a normal 9-5.
