Multitasking is a part of our daily responsibilities and sometimes it can be hard to get in the right mindset to finish everything. Lucky for you (and your brain), studies show that music is highly effective in raising efficiency while doing work. But what are the best types of songs to get your juices flowing? Studies show that songs that include the following elements are more likely to give you a creative boost:
Leave it to Mother Nature
Adding a natural element, such as a waterfall or forest critters, has the potential to boost moods and focus, as its randomness doesn’t distract from the task at hand.
No words necessary
Words are distracting. Noise in general isn’t to blame when it comes to lost productivity, it’s the words that force us to shift focus from our work to figuring out what someone is saying.
Keep it down
Moderate noise levels are just right for creative thinking.
