8 Songs To Add To Your 'I'm Feeling Blue' Playlist

There are days when you just can't help feeling blue. You can try and try to cheer yourself up, but sometimes it may be better to allow yourself to wallow in a puddle of sadness instead. There's nothing wrong with being in your feels. Here are eight sad songs to listen on your gloomy days.

"Me" - The 1975

Starting off this list, a song off of The 1975's debut self-titled album. "Me" is the perfect song to hit when you're in that down in the dumps mood. One listen is all you to understand what I'm talking about — the introduction, the slow metronome style drumbeat, and the intense lyrics. I've spent my share of nights driving around with this song playing, and each time it hits just the same.

"Stay" - Post Malone

This one might be a little more known. The acoustic song about his troubles maintaining a relationship with his girl is one that might hit home for many. Acoustic Post always hits in the feels, and this is no different. Maybe not the best driving song, but definitely good for laying down after a tough day — maybe even a fight with that significant other.

"Privilege" - The Weeknd

The EP is called "My Dear Melancholy," so of course, it's going to have some sad songs. The last track "Privilege" is the one that really got me the most. The song deals with The Weeknd's solution to recovering from a breakup — that solution involves drugs. The slow beat, somber melody, and sad lyrics make for one really good "melancholy" song, making it suitable for your sad playlist just fine. While the whole album could be an article in its own, this track is the one that stuck on my playlist.

"A Heart Like Yours" - Kevin Garrett

In this song, Garrett touches on being left by someone that he still has feelings for. While it starts slow and picks up towards the end, it doesn't lose touch with the sad melody that started it out from the very first note. A good one to check out since many haven't heard this one before (hopefully a new addition to some sad playlists).

"$ting" - The Neighbourhood

It wouldn't be one of my articles if I didn't include The Neighbourhood. Luckily, they have sad songs too. Off of their EP "The Love Collection," this song focuses on a relationship that was doomed from the start, no matter how hard the two people tried to make it work, even stating that the two had been "ignoring the problems just to hold what we had." A good song for those having relationship problems and definitely one that will make the sadness feel sadder.

"Talk is Overrated" - Jeremy Zucker

A track off of his EP "Idle," Zucker teams up with Blackbear to produce a sad song for the ages. Again speaking on relationships, Zucker believes love is not that great and refuses to recognize titles. Blackbear hops on because he is the king of emo. Together they help populate the sad playlists of everyone who believes love is dumb, or in this case, "overrated." Blackbear deserves a shoutout as well, his song "90210" is on my sad playlist.

"Slow Dancing in a Burning Room" - John Mayer

Mayer is known for always having good songs, but that doesn't leave out sad songs. From his album "Continuum," he sings about a relationship that is deteriorating, maybe after one too many fights. It's gotten so bad that they know they're doomed, which brings the title "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room." The combination of emotional lyrics with Mayer's guitar playing ability really brings about a good song to listen to in the shower when you're feeling down.

"Doing It Wrong" - Drake

I could have said "Marvin's Room," but that would have been way too easy. Doing It Wrong, in my opinion, is just as sad. To be honest, I think the melody and beat might even be sadder. Either way, there's a reason Drake is known for being able to put people in their feelings because this song can do just the trick. Whether you've never heard it before — perhaps you have heard it a million times — it deserves a spot on your sad playlist.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.

Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

I’m OK With Hooking Up On The First Date, But That DOESN'T Make Me Easy

2020 has been a crazy year. And yet, women being comfortable with our bodies still seems to be a big topic in mass media.

I'm an adult. There is no reason I can't have consensual sex with someone on the first date. It does NOT make me easy, and it does not mean I'll have sex with just anyone the first time I meet them.

Nothing! There is no reason to feel guilty about food and nourishing your body. It's time to make peace with food and stop focusing on the "good" or "bad," "right" or "wrong" because food does not have power over you.

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinologist who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

This $40 Silk Sleep Mask Gives Me The Best Sleep I've Ever Had — I Never Go Anywhere Without It

Crane And Canopy just redefined the meaning of "beauty sleep".

4329

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.
