Benefits of Listening to Music at Work

These are some of the best benefits of finding your right "rhythm" of work:

Increase your productivity

Different studies have demonstrated the positive effect music has on the productivity of employees. For example, the University of Illinois conducted an experiment during which they supply a group of employees with a personal stereo and headphones to listen to music at work. The results obtained showed a 6.3% increase in productivity among those listening to music while working compared with those employees without music.

In other words, using calming music, so our work rate shall be at our pace will be more leisurely reading. Similarly, we can increase the vibration to work with greater dynamism. I use this technique all the time for exercise, especially while jogging. I am quite sure I won't reach 100mt without the right song, and sometimes I am more than ready to stop running, but the song keeps me going.

Both rock and classical music improve memory

Just as music helps to keep a rhythm, it can also influence how we retain information, that is, our memory. According to the Russian academy of sciences, both classical and rock music, increase the ability of individuals to retain visual images, including letters and numbers. Furthermore, music helps to maintain focus and concentration.

Just think how many lyrics you know and many of these may not even be songs you like, but once the song is playing; it seems like you heard the song for a lifetime. No wonder music therapies are used in people with amnesia and Parkinson's and are highly recommended to maintain memory in old age.
