Stuck at home during Circuit Breaker, many of us have found ourselves turning to a myriad of activities, be it working out or cooking, that we’ve never done so much of before.
Whether you’re winding down to go to sleep, or powering up for a run, here’s our pick of the best YouTube playlists to take you through the different activities.
Whether you’re just relaxing with a cup of coffee, reading a book, or lying in bed on your phone, this mellow indie/folk playlist is perfect for all the times you just want to get a little bit of downtime to relax and unwind.
If your motivation and focus is non-existent while working from home, this playlist is a good place to start to get you back on track. This instrumental playlist won’t have any super catchy pop songs that’ll let you have too much fun, or intrusive words that may distract you from that important email you’re writing.
This soothing playlist is perfect for when you want to have a zen, gentle, yet energising flow session to get in touch with your mind and body.
It’s hard to meditate and to focus on your awareness when the incessant buzz of life is all around you. So plug in your noise-cancelling headphones, press play on this tranquil playlist, and let the world fade away as you focus on your mindfulness.
As the playlist goes on, and as you get more and more warmed up, the bpm of the songs get faster and faster. This will get your adrenaline pumping as you nail those burpees and high knees. If you’re the kind of person who needs music to give you that extra boost of motivation, this playlist will definitely power you through.
A playlist compilation of remixed pop and EDM songs, this is perfect for those who want to go on a long run or jog without only your thoughts for company. If you’re like me and you find running painfully boring, these upbeat songs will keep you entertained as you clock those kilometres.
My favourite playlist of this roundup, this fun, jazzy, bossa nova playlist will have you dancing the salsa as you make the salsa (geddit). Turn up the background music and vibe along to this relaxing yet cheerful mix, because who wants cooking to be a dull, monotonous activity?
Perfect for those who take hour-long showers, complete with mini-concerts, dance sessions and the like. A mashup of hit pop songs from 2018, this upbeat playlist is great for singing in the shower. Now, if you prefer to cry in the shower, that’s a whole different playlist.
A magically tranquil and soothing playlist of slow instrumental tracks to lull you into a deep sleep, this playlist is for those who struggle with insomnia, or need a little help slowing down before going to bed. It’s also three hours long, but if that isn’t enough time for you to fall into a deep slumber, you can always put the playlist on loop.
If you need a quick power nap after lunch to combat the dreaded food coma, press play on this playlist before hitting the sack. It’s supposed to help you feel instantly refreshed, giving you a quick recharge through the science of sound therapy and brainwave music, using binaural beats ranging from 11Hz to 5.5Hz.
This is supposed to help with stress reduction, relaxation, balance and calmness. You’re advised to listen only with headphones, close your eyes and listen to the beats… and let the track work its magic.
