The Perfect Morning Motivation Playlist

Sleep is a beautiful thing but waking up is even better in my opinion. When you wake up in the morning you get to completely restart your day and can do anything you want. Some of us wake-up refreshed and just need a cup of coffee to get going. Some of us wake-up and feel like even moving a muscle is exhausting.

Music is one of the best ways to get yourself up and moving. For all those people who need a little motivation in the morning (and even those who don’t!) I give you The Perfect Morning Motivation Playlist. Open your ears and enjoy.

Ready to Begin – RIVVRS

If you are a little quirky like me this song is perfect for you. It has a little bit of a mystery-esque feel to it that will give you that incentive to get up and solve all the problems that could occur today. Also it has a killer chorus you can whistle to.

This Is What You Came For – Calvin Harris, Rihanna

Okay. We all know this song is the perfect song for any occasion. But, this song is great for the morning because it has a great buildup. It allows you to slowly regain your strength and then dance it out in your kitchen while you make coffee. Also one word. Rihanna.

Fools Gold – Fitz and The Tantrums

Any Fitz and The Tantrums song is perfect for the morning but this song doesn’t get the justice it so deserves. It’s a little bit slower than the other songs on the album but this song is great tune that I guarantee will get stuck in your head the whole day.

I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) – The Proclaimers

So you had to have known this classic hit would be on this playlist. Possibly the greatest song ever it is also a great song to wake up to. It has just the right amount of rhythm to it and will have you head bopping the second you wake up.

Friends – Francis and the Lights, Bon Iver, Kanye West

This song has all the right feels to it. If an upbeat song is not your cup of tea (or coffee) then this song with new Kanye beats to it will have you feel motivated for the whole day.

Home – Johnnyswim

This folksy song is just great. Not to be bias but, this is the song I have woken up to for the last couple months and I am still not sick of it. You motivation will be at 100%. So…that makes it a great song right?

Get Me Golden – Terraplane Sun

This song will get your heart bumping. A little bit indie and a little bit pop it has just the right tempos to get you up and ready for the day.

Dancing on Glass – St. Lucia

St. Lucia has that great electronic sound but isn’t to in your face with it. If you like Elevate by them then Dancing on Glass will become your new favorite pump-up song. It is great song to wake-up to and also to dance your way to class singing.

A Head Full of Dreams – Coldplay

Coldplay has wrote tons of hits but this song off their newest album is a great song to wake-up to. Also wouldn’t you love to wake up with your head full of dreams still? This song provides that.

Kickin’ da Leaves – Judah & the Lion

After hearing this song in a paint commercial (lame I know) I had it stuck in my head for dayz. It will make you jump everytime they start echoing their words. Also how could you not jam to a little banjo chorus?

Worship You – Vampire Weekend

If you can actually sing the words to the song and be understood completely I applaud you. This song has such a fast tempo that you can’t help but jump out of bed and move to them rhythm.

Work This Body – WALK THE MOON

The summer sensation of 2015 has another hit in my eyes. This song will get you hooked the second it starts. Also the song is super easy to sing along with. Add it to your playlist now.

As school is just around the corner use this playlist to get yourself moving in the morning! You know that I will be.
