I’ve had a mental health playlist on my iPod for a very long time. Many of the songs on it helped me get though some of my roughest days as far back as my junior year of high school in 2011. I recently decided that it might be helpful for others if I turned my iPod playlist into a public YouTube playlist! So that’s exactly what I did.
The Inspiring Mental Health Playlist
Originally I’d named this playlist the “Uplifting Mental Health Playlist”, but then I decided to change that. I decided to call it the “Inspiring Mental Health Playlist“. I changed it because some of the songs aren’t necessarily “uplifting”. They’re more inspiring. A lot of the songs on this playlist are Christian songs, but many are not. Plenty are slow and calm, but there are lots that are contemporary songs from the radio. There’s even a hip-hop(ish)/pop song on there called “The Show Goes On” that I added because it’s fun and upbeat. The song reminds me that life moves forward and to not get stuck on the little things.
Please go and check it out! I’ll be continuing to add to it from time to time. I’m also definitely taking suggestions of songs that y’all think should be on the playlist! So if there a song or songs that aren’t currently on there that you think I should consider adding, please feel free to let me know!
