The Ultimate Relaxing Playlist

You know those people who have a separate playlist for every possible occasion? I am the complete opposite. I have one giant playlist entitled Singing in My Car that I made almost a year ago. It goes from Ed Sheeran to Kendrick Lamar to Mumford & Sons. There is absolutely no flow. It has enough music to get me through my five-hour drive home from school but I find myself constantly skipping songs because I am not in the mood to listen to them.

I realized that I have a playlist problem when I was in the shower; where I am physically unable to change the song without drenching my entire bathroom. I am not a shower-singer so I prefer listening to relaxing songs versus throwback pop songs. I would hear one James Blunt song and, bam, it’s Fergalicious time according to my giant playlist.

It hit me that I am horrible at compiling playlists, but it is never too late to change a bad habit! I actually took the time to put together a playlist of only songs that I find relaxing and shower-approved. It is also great for driving down backroads, I tested that out today.
