It’s that time of year again. Whether the end of the semester is your dream come true, your worst nightmare or a little bit of both, chances are your life could use a fresh soundtrack to get you through your finals. If putting another playlist sounds like another task on your already-too-long list, we’ve got you covered. Transform your brain into a peaceful study space with these laid-back tunes.
This playlist combines lo-fi beats and meditation music for the ultimate mix of focus and stress-relief. While music with lyrics can be a distraction, these tracks will help you get in the zone, knock out your projects and master those flashcards you’re flipping through. The two moods also offer a few options based around how you might feel as you inch toward the finish line.
If you need to buckle down, the first half of this playlist is the place to be, offering a laid-back yet focused assortment of mellow beats. If you’re stressed out, click to the second half, which starts with the song titled “Blooming,” for some soothing meditation sounds. Or, if you’re in it for all of the vibes, keep the playlist on repeat so you can get down to business. Grind it out, get it done and most importantly, take care of yourself.
