Mellowtonin: a playlist

By Allie Eames

We all have days that exhaust us and nights when we just can’t fall asleep. I usually turn to music first to calm me down and keep me going even when my day feels 30 hours long.

Some of my favorite artists to turn to when I need to really relax are Norah Jones, Duke Ellington, John Mayer, Bon Iver, and Adele. However, I really want to share some of my favorites that are a little more off the beaten path. The perfect thing to listen to when hanging out relaxing, trying to fall asleep, or trying to take a few deep breaths in the middle of a rough day.
