Maidenfolk Mixtape: 20 Soothing Songs for Self-Love and Care

I don’t know about you, but I need a soundtrack for most things in my life. Long drives, walks through the park, a sleepy Sunday at home, there is always music accompanying me. Finding just the right songs for self-love and care is a special kind of magic. Which is why we created a soundtrack to meet you where you are.

Music can help inspire and conjure the energy we need to feel one way or the other, as well as support us through all the emotions that arise in life. Taking a walk with just the right music can be all it takes to move you towards an emotional transformation. Music can be like a prayer unto yourself when the melodies, rhythms, and lyrics lean towards love. When you need a boost, music can help. Enjoy these songs, while letting them bolster your self-love and self-care.

Listen to this playlist on our Spotify channel and follow us for more playlists to inspire your self-care, or create your own self-care playlist!

When you’re building your own self-care playlist, listen for lyrics that uplift, inspire, support, and comfort your soul. Music is a deeply personal thing, what speaks to you may not make sense to someone else, and that is the best part! You might need different vibes for different self-care moments depending on your emotions as well: the music you need when you are ripe with anger is different than when you need restful solace. You might need a sound bath versus songs you can sing along to. The next time you need a moment of self-care, throw on a playlist and allow the music to hold you.
