Trying to get some work done? Trying to relax? Distracted by all the noises around you or by your wandering mind?
I am constantly having difficulty focusing at work with all the side discussions and other distractions. Listening to music helps me escape to a more positive present moment. Melodious sounds encourage the release of dopamine in the reward area of the brain. Dopamine is a chemical released by part of the brain called the ventral striatum that causes a feel good response in the bloodstream.
I have found that listening to music can improve my attention and memory, improve my mood, and alleviate anxiety. Instrumental music can increase concentration and productivity. Music helps me relax my mind, block outside distractions, and get organized mentally. When I listen to music, I can focus on working, and I can be positively responsive to stress. Whether you want to get through a boring or tedious task or focus creatively, try listening to some music while you work or relax.
One easy way to find something to listen to is to search You Tube for "relaxing music" or "study music" etc. Then branch out based on "like" results. While the results you see may vary from mine, try to experiment with different types of music throughout the day.
Discover your optimal LIFE soundtrack. Become your best you!!
