Today, I’m continuing with my 12 Days of Self Care countdown. For me, a good song can make a huge difference in my mood and how I’m feeling. Therefore, music is an essential part of my self care. It’s also the topic of today’s post.

Let’s first start with a simple question – do people still use the phrase “girl power” or am I tapping into my childhood way too much with that title? It was the best term I could think of to describe the songs I’m sharing today. They all have the same underlying theme of encouraging women and reminding them that we are amazing creatures. Pull out some headphones and get ready to be motivated to do great things!

Here’s nine songs that made it on to my girl power playlist:

Brave by Sara Bareilles

Stupid Girls by P!NK

Roar by Katy Perry

Fight Song by Rachel Platten

Run the World (Pitch Perfect version)

Try by Colbie Collait

Beautiful by Christina Aguilera

Stronger by Kelly Clarkson

One Girl Revolution by Superchick
