Greetings, friends. If you read my blog you may know that I am a current student, and therefore sometimes school makes me feel like I am losing my marbles.
One of the ways I’ve been dealing with my stress levels lately is establishing a routine of going to the gym at least twice a week for an hour or so, and working out until I start to feel more calm. Not only is this healthier than locking myself in my room and dwelling on the influx of assignments I’m plowing through, but it’s also a productive way to stay in shape.
I always listen to music while working out, and generally rely on the “shuffle” function on my phone. So, I present to you the playlist of the top-played songs my phone generates from my library while I am trying to convince myself to think that running on the treadmill is fun.
A link to the playlist can be found here and the track listing is below.
- Run 2/New Order

A bit extensive this time, yes, but still a pretty good selection (if I do say so myself). Also, I must add, I hope everyone remembers to take care of themselves and deal with their stress levels in healthy ways. Staying on top of tasks is imperative, but physical and mental health are both very important. Keeping yourself healthy and happy makes it easier to accomplish your to-do list, and you deserve to feel your best.
Thanks for reading, and God bless.
