Listening to music helps reduce studying or working anxiety. If you have trouble focusing when you study, listening to certain soft music can help because it distracts your mind from the worries. — (via psych-facts)

You were not created to just get by with an average, unrewarding or unfulfilled life. God created you to leave a mark on your generation. You have seeds of greatness planted within you by our Creator. When life weighs you down or tries to limit or label you, you have to know that with God, you have what it takes to overcome and rise above circumstances, oppositions and obstacles.
Know today that there is no force in the universe that can stop you from fulfilling your God-given destiny except for you. God is for you. The enemy is against you. They both have a plan for your life. You cast the deciding vote for whose plan you will actually live out.
Today, if you’ve felt limited, overwhelmed or burdened down by circumstances, that’s not God’s plan for your life. John 10:10 says He desires that you have life and have it to the full, in abundance. Today is your day to take the limits off. It’s time to shake off the past; it’s time to shake off burdens; it’s time to Break Out!
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you…” (Jeremiah 1:5, AMP)
Did you know that God was thinking about you before you were ever born? He knew everything about you before you were in your mother’s womb. He created you on purpose, for a purpose. He carefully planned who you would be, the color of your hair, the color of your eyes and skin. He gave you gifts, talents and abilities to be used for His glory. He took one look at you and said, “Approved.”
No matter how you may be feeling right now, no matter who’s approval you didn’t get on this earth, know that Almighty God loves you and approves of you today. There’s nothing you can do now or ever to change that. You may be thinking, “I’ve made so many mistakes, how can God approve of me?” Understand that when God sees you, He separates you from your behavior. He may not approve of your actions all the time, but He desires to help you grow and make better choices.
Today, receive His love and acceptance. Allow Him to work in your life. Allow His love to empower and strengthen you because you are approved and equipped to live in victory all the days of your life!

Today let me reassure you that God knows right where you are, and He knows how to get you to where you need to be. Even when things don’t go the way you planned, His hand is on you. Do not be afraid. Trust that God is working behind the scenes on your behalf, and that He will lead you into the life of blessing that He has prepared for you.
“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all” (2 Corinthians 4:17, NIV)
In this world, we all have troubles and trials, but aren’t you glad that scripture promises that they are only temporary? Today’s verse tells us they are momentary. Compared with eternity, our troubles won’t last long at all! The second part of this verse tells us that when we stand strong in faith during times of adversity, we are building that faith and achieving eternal glory. When you confess your trust and reliance on God, you are passing the test!
If you are in the middle of tough times today, look to God. The Bible says that Jesus is the Author and Finisher of your faith. He is the one who writes faith on your heart and then develops it to completion on the inside of you as you yield yourself to Him. Your part is to seek Him daily. Follow His commands. Open your heart and choose to speak His Word which is alive and active. Remember, your trials are only temporary, but His eternal glory outweighs it all!
