Music Monday: Songs for the Stressed Students

We’re nearing the end of the college year and many people are going to hit that end of year slump. This time of year is never an easy one for students. Our minds are full of thoughts about summer; we spend our time in lectures day dreaming about being at the beach and instead of writing that 2’000 word report we scroll through looking for cheap getaways whilst a blank Microsoft Word document is abandoned. You’re running out of fuel, motivation levels are low and you’re constantly debating whether or not you should give up and drop out, but there’s something that can help.

I recently came across a genius playlist that my friend Ashley made on Spotify for when he’s writing essays. After listening to the playlist I realised that music has the power to relax you; even when you’re writing the last few hundred words of a politics assignment at 2am. So I present you with my go to tunes to keep the end of year college stress at bay.

George Ezra- Barcelona
The Beatles- Here Comes The Sun
Sixpence None The Richer- Kiss Me
The Maccabees- Toothpaste Kisses
Bombay Bicycle Club- Luna
Arctic Monkeys- Mardy Bum
Ben Howard- Diamonds
Coldplay- Speed of Sound
Fleetwood Mac- Landslide
Jack Johnson- Sitting, Waiting, Wishing

Make a cup of tea, abandon the work for a while and unwind. It’s totally fine to take breaks in between college work; whether you listen to these songs for half an hour, go on a twenty minute stroll or even watch an episode of your favourite tv show. Don’t forget to take breaks, relax and have some me time. You will get the work done in the end and these tunes will make the process that little bit easier. 
Happy listening!
