“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” ― Bob Marley
Sometimes when we’re stressed out, restless, sad or even happy, all we need is music. Music, provided the vibes match up with the emotions, can be incredibly healing. In a matter of minutes, you can feel happier and understood. Now more than ever is a time when we need to rid of stress and cool down, so just pop on your headphones or connect to your speakers and let the rhythm of these calming and relaxing songs take over and drift you away.
Here are five Spotify playlists to help you get into a relaxed state of mind.
#1 Lo-Fi Beats
This amazing playlist from Spotify blesses your ears with discrete, low-key beats that make you want to close your eyes and just sink into your pillow. With slow melodies and no lyrics, you’ll be slowly bopping and waving your head to the fluid rhythms of this playlist’s heartbeat. Perfect before sleep, during the day, on a run or while you’re working.

#2 Chill AF
Rhythmically very similar to Lo-Fi Beats, Chill AF, and it’s in the name, is incredibly relaxing to listen to and gently vibe to. Incorporating the same type of beats and fluidity, Chill af also includes smooth vocals that don’t shock or remove any of the relaxing aspects, in fact, they complement them.
