Do you feel like shit today? Well today is officially the most depressing day of the year. The dark mornings, cold weather, and the sad reality that it’s a long 11 months until we can listen to Mariah Carey’s Christmas albums again can cause many of us to feel a little down in the dumps this month. But today specifically – the third Monday of January – is commonly seen as the peak of our shitmoodyness.
So I’ve put together a Spotify Playlist that might help you beat the blues today and any other day you feel like crap. Some songs I’ve chosen for lyrical content, others for the feeling they leave you with, but all will be sure to lift your mood and your spirit. There’s a hefty mix of genres including a few gospel songs thrown in there, and whilst I am not religious, gospel music is often my go-to when I need to feel lifted. Artists featured on the playlist include Janet Jackson, Fantasia, Beverley Knight, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé and many more.
Go ahead and give my ‘Blue Monday’ playlist a follow on Spotify where I’ll continue to update it with songs that fill your ears and heart with nothing but love and positivity.
