Music delight

Most of us accept that listening to music has a profound effect on our emotions. It can also have an effect on our minds and bodies!

Fast music makes us feel alert and helps with concentration, while upbeat music can help us feel more optimistic about life.

A slower tempo can quiet your mind and relax your muscles, soothing the stresses of your day.

Music is useful for relaxation and stress management, and it can also help you be more productive, no matter what the task at hand is. The right sound can hone your focus, drown out distractions, and get you pumped to kill your to-do list.

The type of music that enhances work performance is different for each person and for the type of task being performed.  For example, music with lyrics can be distracting, while classical melodies with ornate instrumentation have been shown to promote better mood and productivity.

The general consensus seems to be that people can receive a boost from music while working, so have fun trying different genres to determine which one motivates you the most.
