For a Productivity Boost Train Your Brain With Playlists

0

If you’re anxiety ridden lately from exams and papers, maybe it’s time to switch up your playlists.

For the most part people find a calm when listening to their favorite music. It also encourages movement, motivation, and productivity. At seminars you’ll notice music being played softly in the background while you chatter away, and most stores they’ll play music that relates to the retail stores demographic to conjure up positive feelings while you shop. Why not do the same while you study? Make playlists based around your most common stress points in school.

Playlist names:

  • “Learning new material”
  • “Reading from sun up, to sun down”
  • “Exam cramming time”
  • “Discussion post jams”

You get the general idea. A good note to keep in mind is including fast music on these tracks to up your level of productivity. Author Galina Mindlin states in her book, Your Playlist Can Change Your Life, that “a fast song with a high beats per minute can calm you down.” It’s something she recommends for people who are striving for high concentration and focus. Just be sure to choose music that you like and feel excited about.
