The Best Way to Listen to Music for Productivity

Listen to music for 10 to 15 minutes before you start working.

  • Listening to tunes you enjoy can put you in a better mood and relax you. Your brain releases the neurotransmitter dopamine, which gives you a “warm feeling of pleasure.”
  • You may also get a hit of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which elevates your mood and can make it easier to focus.

The exception is when you’re performing tasks that are repetitive or monotonous, such as when you’re working on an assembly line or driving for long periods of time.
