Music for better productivity and focus

  • Classical music: No lyrics are always a popular choice.
  • Electronic music: It’s repetitive but in a good way.
  • Video-game music: Game composers know the ideal music enhances the experience while not distracting the player.
  • Anything soft enough to not divert attention and focus is a great addition to your playlist .
  • White noise or nature sounds.
