Nothing feels more comforting than watching Studio Ghibli films. With no time to watch full films, remind yourself of the memories of those films by listening to the soundtrack. The music is as soothing as the films, so this playlist should help your nerves.

5. Revision Ballads
While ballads can be loud and distracting, this playlist has the best ballads to keep you going. They’re great to sing along to, and studies have shown singing along to music can have a positive effect on your mental health by releasing endorphins.
6. Nature Noise
Music is great but listening to the sounds of nature is even better. It’s deeply soothing and it can shut out the noise from your surroundings, whether you’re in the library or you’re in your room. Escaping your surroundings with the white noise of rain falling or the sound of waves crashing on a beach can really help your mind calm down and let you focus on your work. This is also great to listen to before you go to sleep, if you focus on the sounds and your breathing, it can soothe you to a comfortable sleep.
