Like many people, I often play background music while I am working.
The problem is, not all music is good for when we work.
We need to consider the effect of music from a neuroscience perspective. This way we can flow with the natural laws of our minds/bodies and not against them. Makes sense right?
Music with lyrics (words) tends to distract the mind (brain). Even music without lyrics can distract and cut comprehension. Some music tends to connect with you emotionally and intellectually in ways which are unhelpful.
Lets’ think about what we want to do when we are working (or should do anyway). We want to focus. (Multitasking is not a good idea – this scientifically based statement is beyond the scope of this article however).
What to do?
If you are like me, you will probably appreciate a high quality service which selects/produces/plays the right type of background music for you yes? One which helps you improve focus and concentration.
Such a service is focus@will.
I quote from their website:
focus@will technology delivers various “Attention Amplifying” music channels scientifically designed to engage with your brain’s limbic system. This soothes the easily distracted fight or flight mechanism increasing attention span and general focus
focus@will have developed their service in partnership with two leading neuroscientists.
I suggest you try the focus at will service, which you can do free for 30 days without having to give any credit card details. Experience the difference yourself.
I am a paid member of focus@will and love listening to it. The low annual cost (they have a monthly plan as well) pays for itself by greater productivity and quality of work. In fact, it would cost me money if I did not use focus@will!
