Can listening to music make your productive?
That question, as simple as it sounds, is still hugely contested.
The evidence in the yes camp is quite convincing. It isn’t the music itself, the argument goes, but rather the improved mood your favourite music brings that is the source of this bump in productivity.
Music in the major key, interestingly enough, has better results.
On the flip side, in another study, over 50 employees working on basic computer tasks were found to be more productive when there was no music playing over the same period tested with music.
The choice of music is another hotly debated topic. Everything from metal, rock, pop to ambient and classical music can work, depending on what floats your boat.
Personally, I think music has a MASSIVE impact on productivity.
Here’s an infographic I put together for the 12 ways music make your more productive. Enjoy 🙂
