A lot of planning goes into making spring break plans. In addition to picking the destination, you have to prepare for the week ahead, too. The prep process may involve packing, picking out the perfect outfits or even conjuring up A1 insta-captions for your week of fun in the sun. Or, it may involve sitting at home, alone, watching Netflix with your pet dog… we won’t judge.

Regardless, planning for your stress-free week can be, well, a bit stressful.

There are only a few days left until spring break officially begins, and whether you are planning an epic road trip, a staycation or a relaxing week on a tropical island (lucky you!), MOVE has crafted a variety of music playlists to accompany your week of rest and relaxation.
