Sometimes music is all you need to make you feel better. 


In the midst of a pandemic, music can be the spark of joy within our day. It can help us mentally prepare, relax, focus, and sometimes just jam out. I’ll admit, before my classes begin for the day, I like to dance around the room, whether it’s to classic rock or an early 2000s hit. 


This playlist in particular I hope will find you well. As the semester progresses, establishing a routine is essential and starting your day off right can make a big difference in your mood and productivity during the day! 


These songs will start your morning routine off right with the goal of waking you up and getting your groove on as well! What better way than listening to some classic oldies? Ranging from the 60s to the 90s, these songs will boost your energy with their fun and timeless sound. 


The playlist is named Sunshine, with the intent to bring a sense of ease and nostalgia into your music repertoire. Who knows, you might discover a new band that you’ll love! The link to the playlist will be at the end of the list if you want to give it a listen!
