Motivational Music For The First Monday of 2016

Well, darlings. It’s the first Monday of 2016. For many of us, it’s back to work, school, and other assorted responsibilities. Mondays are hard enough to begin with, but the first one of the year? It’s got to be the hardest! Where do we find the motivation? What can we do to start tackling our new goals? Look no further, the ladies of Literally, Darling got you covered.

We’ve hand-picked some of our favorite songs that get us pumped, motivated, and focused. Whether you’re looking for a little push to knock out your never-ending to-do list, you’re wanting to get your butt to the gym and get active again after the holidays, or you’re simply looking for bad-ass wake up songs to get your mornings started, this playlist is going to be one you keep coming back to. Let’s start 2016 off with a clean slate. Let’s stand up, get confident, and remind ourselves that we run the world.

These songs are going to make you want to get up and kick some ass. Are you ready to conquer 2016 with us?

On her 20th birthday, she started a photo-a-day project and has continued it ever since. When she’s not writing, organizing, or watching HGTV, you’ll probably find her fangirling about her current favorite song, baking (arguably) the world’s best soft pretzels, or daydreaming about travel. She plans to someday move to Australia.
