Many people enjoy listening to music while working, but is the type of music your listening to blocking your imagination and creativity? A lot of people say that Classical music can really help you to focus at work, but it turns out that if you don’t love Classical music, then it isn’t going to help. screen-shot-2015-07-08-at-2-31-31-pm

Rock is also a very distracting genre of music with a lot of “jarring” and can make you feel unsatisfied with your work. In fact, a study done in 1987 that evaluated neurological reactions to musical rhythms found that mice that were forced to listen to Rock music took 5 times longer to find their food through a maze than 2 other groups of mice.

Everyone has a different taste in music, so pick something your enjoy listening to and see how well it helps you focus!
