It is no secret that music can heal and soothe the soul. Whether you’re working out, getting homework done or just trying to push through your day, music can be the thing that can help you stay 10 times more productive for times longer.
For as long as I can remember, I haven’t been much of a morning person. Don’t get me wrong, if I have to be up in the morning (which I do, 9 times out of 10) by all means, I will. But if I could shift my day and not have to be out of bed until like 10, I damn sure would be a happy camper.
What is a #RiseAndGrind Playlist? Why I’m glad you asked. A #RiseAndGrind playlist essentially is a compilation of songs that motivates you to get out of bed and go hard and kill the competition. This playlist should be inspirational and really motivate you to get sh*t done. While listening to this playlist you should feel unstoppable, like there’s nothing that you can’t do.
Here’s a glance at some of the songs that are on my #RiseAndGrind playlist that get me feeling like I cant take on the world and use my 24 hours a bit more wisely.
Here are a few tips for making a #RiseAndGrind Playlist of your own
Choose your platform wisely
The point of building this playlist is so you can use it and have access to it at all times so use a platform that allows you to do that. I’m an Apple Music member so it works best for me; I can use it when I’m at home, at work or on the go and any of my devices.

Don’t limit yourself
Don’t think for one second that the songs you choose have to literally be motivational lyrics (Think “I Believe I Can Fly-R. Kelly”), these songs can just be songs that bring you good memories. Whether it was your past vacation song or the song that you turned up to a prom, just make sure it something that will getting you to grind until the wheels fall off.
Make it 10 songs or more
Let’s just be real. We have a thousand and one things to do in a day and if we’re going to have a playlist that serves as the soundtrack for our day, why not make sure it can last most of those 24 hours if we needed it to?
Start off with just a few songs and build from there
Don’t pressure yourself to make your playlist in one sit in; it takes time to grind so take that same time to slowly build your#RiseAndGrind playlist. Instead, start with your 10 songs and add more songs as they come to you. For instance, if you’re listening to your music library and you hear a song that you feel is fit for you #RiseAndGrind playlist, be sure to add it.
Don’t be afraid to make some adjustments
You essentially what to build a #RiseAndGrind playlist so bomb that you don’t feel the need to ever skip a song. In the beginning, you may feel the need to change the order of the songs or even remove some and that is okay. Put in the effort to construct your playlist how you want it so it can really help you stay productive.
You’re probably sold on the idea already but you really need to apply it to your life. You’d be how surprised how having a little theme music can turn you into a superhero in your own right.
