April is Stress Awareness Month, and what better way to decompress than with your favorite song? According to the University of Nevada, Reno, “music can have a profound effect on both the emotions and the body,” adding that “Native American, Celtic, Indian stringed-instruments, drums, and flutes are very effective at relaxing the mind even when played moderately loud.”

I am by no means a passionate Taylor Swift fan, but “Shake It Off” seems to have been grown in a lab with the sole purpose of reducing stress. Everything about it— from the bouncy beats to the breezy delivery—makes me feel a little bit lighter at that moment; “shake it off” indeed!
“After the Storm” by Mumford and Sons is such a beautiful song that gives hope during hard times. I love listening to it when I am doing yoga!
