Stressed? Dance It Out With These 19 Jams

As the semester starts winding down, stress usually revs up. From holidays to final exams, the final stretch of the semester is enough to make anyone feel overwhelmed and stuck. When I’m stressed and in need of an escape from essays, assignments and planning ahead for exams, I turn to music. Sometimes it’s soft music to relax my mind after cramming too much information and other times I need something to get me off my feet. That’s right, it’s time to dance!

Let’s loosen up those limbs and dance like nobody's watching. When you're feeling stressed and overwhelmed turn up your favorite jams and release those endorphins. Your body and mind will thank you. I’ve compiled a list of 19 songs that I love to jam out to. Maybe these songs aren’t your groove, but find anything that makes you swing your hips and dance like crazy. Here are my jams:
