52 Songs To Get You Through The Bad Days

If you're anything like me, you have someone in your life who just seeps optimism, or that happy person in someone else's life might even be you. No matter how much positivity you surround yourself with, bad days still happen to the best of us. These bad days will occur for many different reasons: family troubles, friendship or relationship drama, bad grades, trauma, etc. Whenever these bad days occur and for whatever reason, it is important to practice self care. One thing I like to do in order to get through the bad days is lay on my floor and listen to music. I enjoy listening to both slow and upbeat songs to help myself calm down, recharge, and keep going.
