Choose Unfamiliar Work Music For Better Productivity And Focus

Music can make work fly by faster and maybe even boost your productivity — but that all depends on the type of music you listen to. The folks at productivity music service Focus@Will advise us not to listen to music we love, but rather a genre we don’t typically listen to.

So if you like jazz, don’t listen to jazz while working, because, although that music will give you pleasure, it will also release dopamine in your brain and distract you.

Unfamiliar music, on the other hand, maximises the focus effect you could get from music — extending your concentration time up to about 100 minutes, according to Focus@Will’s research.
