Groovy, Baby: Songs To Make You Feel Gooooooood

Finals season is upon us, babes: long nights of cramming, early mornings fueled by waaaaay too much caffeine, and stress reaching astronomical levels. Even though everything feels overwhelming, it’s crazy important to remember to take a few minutes to calm down, relax, and do something good for yourself. When I’m feeling anxious, I often turn to music to ground myself and remind myself that everything is going to be okay. So, here’s a little feel-good compilation of sweet songs that always brighten my day and help me feel more like myself.
