My 3 Songs: Energizing Songs For The Holidays

The holidays are a time of happiness, togetherness, kindness, and peace...OR ARE THEY? Okay so yeah, the holidays are about all those things but all of those things can mean a whole lots of stress, and preparation. They usually entail baking cookies, shopping for gifts, decorating your house and hosting friends and family. All that stuff can seriously tap out your energy supply in a way that even Red Bull can't fix sometimes — and that's where music comes in!

With the power to change your mood, music is the best natural remedy to exhaustion and stress. We asked YOU which songs you turn to when you need a kick in the pants to get going and get that last gift at the (over)crowded mall or bake that last batch of sugar cookies. Here are 3 suggestions for your HOLIDAY ENERGY PLAYLIST:

Rihanna - We Found Love (submitted by Tayelor Mariie Littlefield)



It's the way I'm feeling I just can't deny / But I've gotta let it go

This song serves to remind us that sometimes if we're feeling something (stress perhaps?) we have to just let it go and JUMP AROUND. Plus, in the video it seems like Rihanna and her love interest are having lots of fun (until the end of course. #dark)

Flo Rida - Good Feeling (submitted by Mohammad Abu Ata)



You can't listen to this song and be sad, it's right there in your ear: oh, sometimes I get a good feeling, yeah / I get a feeling that I never never never never had before, no no / I get a good feeling, yeah so you have to just dance and let it all out! It's the perfect song to energize you when you're in the middle of a present-wrapping marathon.

Eminem - Lose Yourself (submitted by Zoro Ren)



You better lose yourself in the music / The moment, you own it, you better never let it go

This song is perfect to remind you that once in a while you just need to lose yourself, stop stressing, and just go with the flow. Plus, the intensity of Em's voice will totally pump you up!
