10 Songs To Help You Relax Before/During Finals

I'm sorry to bear the bad news, but hopefully these will help.

10 Songs To Help You Relax Before/During Finals

I'm so sorry to remind you, but finals are soon approaching. Here are 10 songs that I recommend to help you relax, because if you are anything like me, stress only makes things worse.

1. Danny Boy- Celtic Thunder

This is my ultimate song to relax to. It could be because of my wonderful time in Ireland, or I like the sound of nice singing voices with foreign accents. Maybe it's my Irish heritage, but who knows, everyone I share it with seems to enjoy it.

2. Tiny Dancer- Elton John

I feel like Sir Elton does not even need an explanation.

3. Set Fire to the Rain- Adele

I do not know why, but this song has always helped me calm down. The piano music and Adele's soaring voice could do it. It could also be the fact that it is a beautiful singing voice with a foreign accent.

4. Weightless- Marconi Union

This song seems nice enough upon superficial listen, but according to numerous neuroscientists along with several studies, it is THE song to listen to if you want to relax.

5. Hallelujah- Leonard Cohen (or the Pentatonix version)

The beauty of this song itself puts me into a very calm space every time I listen to it. The Pentatonix music video went viral on my social media sites because of the beauty. I have always found acapella music to be particularly beautiful and relaxing.

6. Life of the Party- Shawn Mendes

He has recently blown up. This, however is one of his earlier songs that I absolutely adore. His voice paired with the piano and the uplifting message create another wonderful song to help you temporarily escape from the world.

7. Angel of Music- Phantom of the Opera Original London Cast

Anytime you listen to Phantom, it better be the original London cast or else you are missing out. This entire musical is a gorgeous masterpiece. For some reason, this song has stuck with me in it's own way. Sometimes, when I am really stressed, I listen to this before bed and it helps me fall asleep.

8. Empty Chairs at Empty Tables- Les Miserables Cast

Although this song is incredibly sad and poignant, I find it very relaxing.

9. Imagine- John Lennon

The message, the voice, and the instrumentals create a world in which we would all like to live, albeit temporarily.

10. Let it Be- The Beatles

This song is wonderfully calming, and also a good reminder that whatever happens this finals season will happen.

Good luck everyone!

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.


Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
