In my opinion, everyone needs a feel good playlist saved to their phone. I promise it'll come in handy more than you think. The best part about them is that they're so universal. You can put it on when you're trying to turn your mood around or when you're feeling life and driving with the windows down, screaming every lyric as loud as you can. Whatever the occasion, when you're ready to sing along and put yourself in a feel good kind of mood, these are some songs that will never let you down.

1. "Beautiful Soul" - Jesse McCartney

Usually Drake makes an appearance on my sad playlists, but One Dance definitely doesn't belong there.

It's right there in the name, brightside. Your day is bound to be a good one with this song.

12. "Smile" - Uncle Kracker

My heart literally screams with happiness every time I hear this song. I don't know if it's Uncle Kracker's voice or his adorable lyrics, but I am in love with this song.

13. "Beverly Hills" - Weezer

Warm up your vocal cords before cranking this one up, you can't not belt out the words as loud as you can.

14. "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" - Cyndi Lauper

This song is the definition of a song never getting old. It's so overplayed and has been for thirty years, but yet we all still love it and sing along every time it's on.

15. "Don't Stop Believin'" - Journey

Maybe it's the sentimental value I have with this song or maybe it's just how uplifting the beat is, but this song really gets me going every time.

16. "The Climb" - Miley Cyrus

upload.wikimedia.org

I strongly believe that this will be one of those songs that sticks around forever. It's so powerful and motivating, literally makes you feel good.

17. "Burnin' Up" - Jonas Brothers

I had to include the Jonas Brothers in this list because at least my generation understands that they were really 'it' back in the day and their songs will always make me smile.

I Asked 22 People 4 Questions About George Floyd, And It's Clear Black Lives NEED To Matter More

Change can't happen tomorrow, because we're already 100 years behind today.

Taylar Banks

May 25, 2020: the day that will forever be remembered as the day George Floyd lost his life at the hands of cops.

The day that systematic racism again reared its head at full force in 2020.

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.
