Songs, affirmations and Self Love

Recently I created the Love Thy Self Oracle Deck.

I think music is so healing. For me personally. It helps me push past my comfort zones on a hard run, it helps me move my hips when I am dancing to a good beat and it helps me clear emotions when I sing. I have always been so drawn to music and find so much pride in people coming up to me after a Pilates class and them telling me how much the like my playlist. I wanted to create a bomb playlist to help you love yourself a little bit more. So lets go on a journey of self love through music….

  • Music overall has a positive effect on stress reduction in both physiological arousal and especially psychological response. In terms of time frame, music has an immediate beneficial effect on these outcomes.
  • Music experienced as pleasant increases the intensity of emotional valence (feelings of happiness), which likely has a stress-reducing effect.
  • In addition, listening to music can provide ‘distraction’ from stress-increasing thoughts or aversive emotional states.
  • Music with a slow, steady rhythm may provide stress reduction by altering inherent body rhythms such as heart rate. In addition, larger effects are found listening to music with a tempo of 60–80 beats per minute (BPM), which characterizes music that progresses in a slow and soothing pace.
  • Positive outcomes are observed when individuals select their own music, and when researchers pre-select music for research participants. However, because music appreciation and enjoyment is highly subjective, maximal benefits are often observed when individuals select their own relaxing music. Positive effects are typically observed when individuals listen to slow and steady songs, or relaxing classical music. More info here

I included with each card a song, and created a self love playlist. Here is a list of every card in the Love Thy Self Deck along with the music video. These are all just songs I like, feel free to follow me on Spotify and comment below if you have a better song.
