Many would be surprised about this but there are actually genres of music that are capable of helping people to have more focus on what they are doing. For instance, there are some Calgary painters that listen to their beat when on the job to work more productively and efficiently. According to Dr. Masha Godkin who is a professor at Northcentral University in the Department of Marriage and Family Sciences,
Music can potentially take an individual from Beta brainwave state into a deeper Alpha state and then to Theta brainwave state all based on the music they are listening on.
Also she added that music can activate both the right and left part of the brain simultaneously and the activation of both maximizes learning and improving memory retention of a person. As per Godkin, it is preferable to stick in listening to classical music. One good reason for this is that, this works perfectly fine since there’s no lyrics that would possibly distract you in what you’re doing. Furthermore, you may branch do meditation as you listen to classical music, which is useful when you want to focus.
Music is Powerful
Music has this profound impact on our blood pressure, heart rate and mood. For optimal music to study and focus, it will be preferable to listen to genres that will keep you awake but will not cause you to tap your body to beat. Rather than depending on random mix or radio, it will be best to make your own playlist whom you feel best for concentration.
At the same time, you could plan for the set amount of uninterrupted music that serves as built-in timer when you are studying. When the playlist is up, then that is when you can take a break or something like that.
But let us remember that each and everyone of us has unique taste in music. Though, there are some genres that are generally acceptable when doing something.
Here, what you want are soothing sounds of classical orchestra music that can actually boost productivity and mood which is perfect for studying.
The ambient sounds of spa will help in achieving a state of relaxation.
Sounds of birds, babbling brooks, rain and wind create an instant state of calmness and make a wonderful background noise too.
