That’s right, IF YA LOVE YASELF, THEN HUG YASELF.

 

So how does one hug oneself? Not just with your arms wrapped around yourself in the corner like a creepo, but on the deepest of levels.

How do we #StopHate and start loving? How do we stop crying about life and start dancing through it?

For one, positive, uplifting, SUPERCHARGED music of all kinds always helps. Check out these 20 Surprising, Science-backed Health Benefits of Music.

Kwanza mentions “freestyle love moments” in the video above.  They’re those moments of clarity where you just don’t care anymore about how much you truly and deeply care about everything – and you start to embrace the love within you. They’re those moments that help you recharge and bring you to dance, smile, sing, and put on that bling.

And to inspire you to have even more of those exact moments in your life, we’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite power-inducing, happiness-reminding, downright positivity-exploding songs to help us all power through our workouts, or dance breaks, or even our heartbreaks – to help us leave the past in our wake and be here now to live happily and dance-ily.

Why?

Because this exact moment is a mountain you can easily move.

You just gotta move.

Nick Mulvey, Mountain to Move

Some notable lyrics for ya. These help us love the reality of life and the reality of the power within ourselves at all times – just look inside yourself:

…Give it to me, realness
Give it to me, stillness
Give you some forgiveness
Give it to me, wholeness
This moment is a mountain to move
Yeah yeah, so move it inside

Sia, Alive

This one always gets us. It’s a good reminder that ya ain’t dead yet and that this life is YOURS to enjoy:

…But I survived
I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing, I’m still breathing
I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive
I found solace in the strangest place
Way in the back of my mind
I saw my life in a stranger’s face
And it was mine

Journey, Don’t Stop Believin’

Simple yet poignant words that help us to keep going, keep going, keep going after our heart’s desire. That joyous feeling within you is there for a purpose:

Don’t stop believin’
Hold onto that feelin’

Kwanza Jones, Summer Forever

What a good reminder that we’re responsible for our own happiness. It’s up to you to live presently. It’s your choice to have a warm, summery state of mind:

We’re partying for here and now
Ain’t nobody stoppin’
Keep the music rockin’
Soakin’ in the sunshine
Dancing under moonlight
We’re about that good life
Don’t worry about nothing
Let’s make the summer last forever

Gloria Gaynor, I Will Survive

Ever been through a breakup? This one always ignites some necessary survival instincts – and reminds us it’s ok to learn how to love ourselves again:

Oh no, not I! I will survive!
Oh and as long as I know how to love I know I stay alive.
I’ve got all my life to live, I’ve got all my love to give.
And I’ll survive!
I will survive! Hey, hey.

Jimmy Eat World, The Middle

And this one is the always-wonderful FOMO-killer and YOLO-inducer. In other words, don’t be so hard on yourself. Do what ya can. It’s enough:

Hey
Don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just try your best
Try everything you can
And don’t you worry what they tell themselves when you’re away
It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be all right

Swedish House Mafia, Don’t You Worry Child

Just in case you think your life isn’t going the way it’s supposed to, crank this up and sing these words – and dance your heart right out:

Don’t you worry, don’t you worry, child.
See heaven’s got a plan for you.
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now.
Yeah!

Louis Armstrong, What a Wonderful World

Wowwee, we can’t forget this gem. Because at the end of the day it’s all a matter of perspective. You wanna see beauty? Choose to see beauty. You wanna stop hate and spread love? Start loving yourself, and start loving others:

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

Keep on pushing everyday. Keep on pushing. Never fade.
