Happy 2018! A new year is finally upon us, which means a new semester and schedule to adjust to. After a month of doing nothing, it may seem hard to get back into the grind of waking up for an 8:00am or going to exercise at the rec. So, when you have no motivation or need to feel confident enough to get up and start your day, listen to these songs!

Thunder – Imagine Dragons 

Imagine Dragons isn’t really known for songs like this, but Thunder sure has a nice beat to walk to! If you watch Riverdale, think of the part in Season 2, Episode 5 when Alice Cooper strolls into the Lodge’s party rocking a short jumper after a mugshot of her has been published in the paper. She did that, and you can, too.

Sorry Not Sorry – Demi Lovato

If you’re looking for another song to help you feel confident, look no further than Ms. Demi Lovato. Really listen to the lyrics with this one. Don’t give your all to something that won’t give you the same in return. Just flip your hair and strut in the other direction.

24K Magic – Bruno Mars

Not only did this song just win a Grammy, but it just makes you feel glamorous. When you hear the opening chord, imagine yourself walking down Hollywood Boulevard as everyone stares in awe of you. Now, if you can make that work as you walk down Rollins to get to class, then you’ll make any day great!

Me Too – Megan Trainor

This is the iconic song to walk to. Meghan Trainor was really feeling herself when she wrote this, and you should, too. If you like to walk to the beat of a song, this one is perfect. It’s fast, but not like weird speed-walking fast, and it’s a total confidence booster.

Bootylicious – Destiny’s Child

You have to add some throwback songs in your daily playlist. Beyoncé is the queen of confidence, and she kills this song with her girls. Put this song on when you need to convince yourself that you are so much better than the others and that you can get a lot done today.

When your alarm goes off in the morning, don’t set it to the default beeping sound. Put on one of these songs, and get in the mindset that today is going to be a great day! Make this semester a good one, tigers!
