Self Care: The Playlist

In the recent years, self care has become more popular than ever. Clothing, beauty, and other industries have become major supporters of the notion of putting yourself first mentally, physically, and emotionally. As college students, booking a trip to a lavish spa every weekend is not realistic, we're not billionaires yet and we're far too busy. What we can do however, is take a day to pamper oursleves and play our music loud. With that in mind, HCNSU wanted to give you the perfect songs to add to your self care playlist.

 One of Them Days by Kiana Lede

 “One of them days” is perfect for the person in a relationship or the person that usually extremely socialable that simply needs a day for themselves. The best thing to do if your energy is off is to reserve a day or two ....or three and recharge. The singer coos about just needing a day to feel and process emotions and that what most people need. Emotions are normal, sadness and happiness alike and sometimes a day is needed to unpack those emotions.
