The spring season is upon us! And while this time of the year always brings with it optimism, hope, and good spirits, it can also be a time of stress and anxiety. For every warm and sunny day that beckons from outside your window, there is a midterm to study for, a paper to write, or a job application that demands your attention and keeps you indoors. While these scenarios are not appealing, they are nevertheless inevitable. Here at Wasserman, we want to help keep things positive as we strive to help in making the remainder of your spring semester a meaningful and productive one.
Join us over the next several weeks, as we post a series of wellness articles and links designed towards helping you relieve that stress and focus all of your energy towards achieving your goals and maximizing your productivity. Of particular interest to us here at Wasserman is music. A good song can always bring about positivity and has been proven to aid in motivation and productivity. Each of these wellness posts will feature hand-selected tunes from our staff, which we’ll compile into a playlist at the end of the series for you all to enjoy and share. Consider it a bonus gift, and perhaps a welcome addition to your own personal music collections.
Diana Gruverman, Director: “Manic Monday” by The Bangles because I am a child of the 80s. Every morning for me is a manic Monday (oooooh, oh…) as I race to get two kids dressed, fed, to school, and arrive at Wass in time to start the NYU day.
Jeff Strowe, Assistant Director: Son Volt’s “Windfall” is a classic song for so many reasons, three of which are that it’s simply relaxing, a bit inspirational, and makes me want to take a road trip out to the country. And it gets bonus points for the pedal steel/fiddle combination.
