We’ve all been there.
Looking in the mirror.
Squishing our cheek as the tears trickle and our bottom lip curls like a fortune fish.
Having a good old cry is human; sometimes letting the sobs roll releases oxytocin (a happy hormone).
But if you’re anything like me (God help you if you are), I always turn to my ‘chill’ playlist which is essentially a cover-up for ‘sad songs’.
As I feel the lump in my throat swell like a berroca hitting the glass of water after a boozy night, I turn straight to the tracks which will always kickstart the floods.
You might just be stuck on what to tune into when a little cathartic release is about to hit. Well, have no fear because my top 5 songs for you to ‘ugly cry’ to are here…
#1 RY X – Berlin
#2 Honne – Crying Over You
#3 Billie Eilish – when the party’s over
#4 Conan Gray – Heather
#5 M83 – Wait
Just in case…
Although it’s very healthy and entirely normal to enjoy a good cry – remember to always speak to someone close to you or your GP if things feel too tough.
Listening to music is a great way to channel and figure things out in your head but if your mood is dipping, there is always someone there and most importantly, always an answer!
I’ll pop a few links below if you could do with a little direction on where to go.
