Tuesday Tunesday: Rain, Rain Go Away?

 

Happy Tunesday, friends! I absolutely LOVE sleeping in the rain. It’s honestly the best way for me to sleep deeply and soundly, and last night was no exception! When I woke up this morning and started getting ready for the day, I couldn’t help but listen to my favorite Rainy Day Mix, comprised of relaxing Indie tunes perfect for any rainy, chill day. Actually, it’s my favorite playlist for any occasion. So, whether you’re listening to the rain pitter-patter against your window, wrapped up in your coziest blanket, or driving through thick fog and a torrential downpour, here are a few of my favorite songs from my Rainy Day Mix to put you at ease.

Tuesday Tunesday: Keep Breathing

328. Three. Two. Eight. Three hundred and twenty-eight. That’s the number of times (give or take) I’ve played Ingrid Michaelson’s “Keep Breathing” (Be Ok, 2008). First heard on Grey’s Anatomy when Cristina realizes Burke not only called off the wedding, but also left her for good (Season 3, Episode 25 “Didn’t We Almost Have it All?“), this seems to be my go-to song, especially when it feels like the world is falling apart. Whether you’re feeling anxious, depressed, moved to act, but paralyzed by fear, Michaelson’s lyrics beautifully and soothingly remind us that “all we can do is keep breathing.” She inspires us to breathe, calm ourselves, and take life one step at a time. Sometimes that’s all you can do, and that’s more than enough. What are you listening to? Comment below!
