Some of the work you do requires your full attention. Music can help you to get in your zone. Only you and your work remain and your focus is only on your work.
Research has shown that speech is the most disturbing source of noise, which also makes it the number once cause that reduces productivity. This should be a very good reason why you should avoid speech in your music as well.
What kind of music should you listen to? For instance classical music, nature sounds, and soundtracks. They all do not contain any lyrics. The music should be calm and so it delivers no distraction for you to concentrate on your work. It should not be boring or to happy.
After trying different things I found that for me classical music works the best. I will share with you the playlist I like to use. Of course there are many more options on Youtube to find. This playlist worked best for me. It does not distract me from my work, but is not boring to listen to.
Let me know in the comments what you think of the Playlist. Does it help you as well with concentrating?
