Have you had a chance to listen to President Obama’s Summer Playlist yet? DID YOU KNOW THERE ARE TWO?!?! Obviously I love a good playlist, and these are like gold. Presidential gold my friends. Except Courtney Barnett (Sorry, I’ve never been able to jump on that train.) Anyway, there is a day playlist and a night playlist, and I highly recommend letting them take you through this lovely Friday – that’s my plan 🙂
This week’s playlist is all about setting the tone for you to get some work done. Specifically, this playlist is for when your mind won’t stop racing and you have work that you need to get through. Picture this – it’s Monday afternoon and you are going through a serious case of the Monday blues. You had an incredible weekend and all you can think about are the different moments that you would rather be back in. The idea that you are supposed to meet your end of day deadline is looking more and more like a distant fantasy.

These songs will help to get you out of your head and into a space where you can power through that project or check off the items on your list. Enjoy -xx
This will be the first in a roll-out of mood playlists that I am super excited to share. The exciting thing about these lists is they will be constantly updated on Spotify. Whenever I find a song that fits the vibe, I will add it into the mix. You can follow the playlist, or come back to this post, to have access whenever the mood strikes and hopefully you’ll hear some new tunes each time!
This week’s playlist is for when you are feeling good with where things are going in your life (or maybe you are trying to trick yourself into feeling good? idk.) You are content, not an extreme emotion like excitement or sadness but a comfortable spot where you have what you need and are looking forward to things to come. It’s like when you are sitting in a park with the sun shining, it’s comfortably warm and you can feel the sun’s rays on your skin. You have a tasty beverage and a snack and are reading a new book that you are just far enough into to be totally hooked. Chill and dreamy vibes come through this steady list of songs that can help keep that good mood going.
Take a listen and browse some paintings by Clare Elsaesser to help build up that mind-set.
