Listening To Music At Work Makes You More Efficient
Do you listen to the radio or music on your earbuds or computer while you work? Does it block out distractions from your coworkers AND help you get stuff done faster?
According to the experts, at least half of us listen to music while we work.
And it's GOOD productivity.
The researchers found people finished a task about three minutes faster when they were listening to music than when they weren't.
Why? The researchers say it's because listening to music, quote,
"Affects mood and mental and physical performance . . . [and] the music can function as a sort of 'white noise,' canceling out potentially distracting ambient noise."
By the way it also can make you sleep better, or at least it makes me sleep better...call it job security.
