Why Calming Music Can Heal Your Soul

How many times a day do you exhaustedly sigh and feel unmotivated, tired, or say “I can’t do this?” Stress is more harmful than most expect. Finding yourself consumed with stressful emotions can lead to heart disease, premature aging, weight gain, high blood pressure, and overall a weakened immune system, which is the last thing you want during a global pandemic. In the moment, we only feel the stress, but we need to keep in mind the long-term effects are yet to come. Therefore, it’s extremely important to find ways to battle the pressure of everyday life. During stressful times we need to remember, “It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.” -Lou Holtz


Here are four soothing songs recommended by my classmates and family that may help boost relaxing feelings during your day.


  1. Westworld: Runaway - Kanye West [Piano Cover] - YouTube

  2. Twilight Soundtrack- Bella’s Lullaby

  3. Mia and Sebastian’s Theme- La La Land Soundtrack

  4. Yellow- Coldplay
