The Effects of Music on Productivity
From boosting motivation while working out, to helping us wind down after a long day, music plays a central role in our everyday lives.
We've become so connected to our favourite songs and playlists that it's no surprise that listening to music can give us a motivational boost. In fact, we recently carried out a survey* that revealed that 38% of people believe that music increases their productivity and 46% said they listen to music to feel motivated while working. There's science to support these claims too - numerous studies have looked at the link between music and productivity, with very interesting results.
Whether you’re at your computer at work, or doing a spring clean at home, here’s how music can help boost your productivity.
Music is a great tool for boosting motivation and productivity, whether you’re working from home or going out for a run. Not only is it stress-busting and brain-boosting, it also helps to drown out all of the potential distractions around us. If you’re looking to use the power of music to its full advantage, you’ll probably want to listen through headphones or earphones. As well as cancelling out external noise, a pair of good quality, well-designed headphones or earphones – such as the S500W true wireless earbuds – will create a much more immersive listening experience, helping to boost your mood and power through the task in hand.
