Its funny, I created a study/work playlist for myself and now it has over 10,000 followers on Spotify but I've found its not always good for me. It depends on the activity.
Reading, writing, working on flows, UI, or general work stuff: I can't listen to music. I get distracted or I can't think clearly.
For heads down production type work, updating mocks, making art, or menial tasks: Music enhanced my work and allows me to be more productive.
Edit: My playlist if you're interested: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/3Qc4iY6n352nayiSMnDfBQ?si=imZ3IuozQeyt7wjrHjVskQ
Really like this playlist. Thanks!
Oh man, I've listened to loads of so-called workshop playlists on Spotify and they have been so far off the mark and unworkable. Love the scientific insight and rationale here - will give it a listen and report back.
for me when its up beats music makes me shake my leg ... when its low beats make me sleepy.. so for me no no no for any music while working!!
