The type of music you listen to defines your personality. While this is a given fact, sometimes, your favorite music ends up distracting you from performing your job properly. The music you choose to listen to while you are at work should be something that could soothe your senses and ignite your concentration. Below is a list of genres that can help you concentrate especially when you’re doing nerve-wracking work.
The classical genre is seen a supplementary music therapy for pregnant women. It has been medically proven that a mother who listens to classical music while carrying her child in her womb has a child that has an above average IQ. Classical music usually touches on the brain’s left and right lobes simultaneously, allowing one to concentrate fully on the task at hand. So when you’re writing something, or cataloguing things, or doing a task that requires no constant communication with anybody, classical’s for you.
2.) Acoustic/ Jazz
Now you might be feeling ancient listening to classical. If you don’t find classical as something that appeals to your senses, you can try listening to acoustic songs or even jazz music. Both genres are usually an expression of a musician’s soul and the lyrics he or she sings. The human voice, when used in a soothing manner, along with the right melodies, can create a relaxed tone. These genres are more effective especially if you need to chill out from a stressful task.
Reggae is a genre well known for its peace loving musicians, its lovely, organic sound and slow beat tempos. One can imagine a beach when listening to reggae. However, in work, reggae works because of the positive messages they carry with them. Having you think positively because of the songs you’re listening to is one of the many ways you can actually do work properly.
4.) Ambient/ Electronica
Slow beat electronica to ambient music also touches on the soul. Ambient soundscapes and electronica music can bring pictures into your mind of a relaxing place somewhere that may or may not be of this world. If you like imagining places or would like to imagine a place to work in, ambient music can help you. It can help you escape from your strenuous looking workspace into a heaven that you can do your work peacefully.
