Slower Songs to Listen to While Studying

Chances that if you are reading this, you are probably looking for different music to study with. With finals coming around soon, (we know! Isn’t it so scary how quickly time flies by?) We thought it would be nice to share some of the music we listen to. Usually when we are studying, we know that we feel super stressed like Spongebob running around a room screaming, but inside our heads. So we choose to listen to different music than, let’s say, what we would listen to if we were at the gym. While we know many people listen to very upbeat songs to make them feel more energized for the study grind, we work in the opposite way and listen to slower, more mellow songs instead. We feel like the slower/acoustic music helps us lower our stress and makes us feel like all our responsibilities aren’t piling on us nonstop. Usually we listen to Pandora or Spotify, or sometimes we just look for one song on Youtube and let it keep playing the next songs it suggests, but there are so many ways to find new music to listen to! Here are some of our recommendations and we hope you give them a chance!
