Are you able to listen to music while you are working on an assignment, or studying for an exam? I know many of you probably can, but for some reason I can’t! Every time I press play on my iTunes list, or plug-in to my favorite station on Pandora, I always find that I am more into the music than my work. (This GIPH is exactly what I used to look like in the library, but much more animated and louder LOL)
And, I try so hard to balance the two actions (working and listening) in my mind, but most of the time I just turn off the music, so that I can be more productive.
So, I know you are thinking, “well why in the hell did you write this post then !”
Well, I think I’ve found a solution for all of my people out there who experience the same issue.
I’ve been experimenting with listening to Pandora stations that are all instrumental based. But, get this, I’ve found that I am much more focused when I listen to classical, smooth jazz, and praise stations.
Now, I know that you’re probably thinking that these stations seem like they would be corny, but it actually works.
Next time you’re studying or working on an assignment, try it out and see if it works for you. If not, maybe it’s just best for you to work in silence, and that is okay!
Here is my list of “Grind Stations” to help me get my work done:
What are some of your favorite stations to listen to when you’re trying to focus?
