I came across this article in graduate school talking about a Reddit community coming together to create ” Perfect Everything Will Be OK” playlist. After reading the article (and listening to the playlist, it was pretty good), I brought the idea into my group therapy class, but with a twist. Rather than just taking the playlist and giving it to my classmates, I asked them to create their own playlists. I presented them with the task to purposefully create playlists for when they’re feeling some type of way. A playlist for when they’re sad, for when they’re mad, for when they’re happy, whatever you can think of! Music can be a wonderful tool into mental health, which I will be exploring in the coming months.
If you feel that pull to make a playlist, lean into it. You never know what songs you’ll find that you forgot existed. If you need some inspiration, here is the article I mentioned https://www.popsugar.com/smart-living/Everything-OK-Songs-39205379/?crlt.pid=camp.FwrIbLv8oKn8
Take care of yourselves until next time.
