We all listen to music for emotional enjoyment, and the psychological benefits have long been known, but in addition to impacting mood, music has also been shown to have the more tangible effect of boosting productivity.
In this latest piece from MusicThinkTank, Adelina Benson explores music's ability to prove our concentration, speed, and productivity.
"Music without lyrics has been famous for helping people concentrate on their work. Familiar tunes, classical music and ambient sounds can help your mind focus on what’s ahead of you and tune out the rest of the world. Music with lyric can be less successful in this since lyrics make you focus on the message the song carries or memories related to the song rather than the work in front of you."
