There have been countless studies done that have tried to correlate type of music with productivity. With more and more organisations going casual and flat; organisations are becoming more aware of out of the box methods to improve creativity and productivity in the workplace. Regardless of what genre you enjoy, there are certain types of music that enhance greater performance than other. Here in this article, we have looked at some of the best music genres to check out if you wish to spice things up at work.
Nothing beats classical music. That applies here as well; a blast of Beethoven can get your cognitive function rising while still helping you to focus and concentrate. If you are feeling droopy at work and there are times when people just want to take the day off; in such instance try out some classical music to get the juices flowing.
Nature music is a wild card entry to be honest. Soothing sounds such as waterfall, rain and wind chimes are great nature music to listen to but the flipside is that soothing music can easily put you to sleep if you are tired. Turn to this genre if you wish to get your focus back but not as a way to charge yourself up; because if you feel tired, this music can easily put you to sleep.
- Epic Music
There are hundreds of compositions under the genre epic music. They make you feel part of something bigger and greater than the normalcy that we are stuck in. So if you are looking for ways to focus on the big picture; then get pumped up by listening to epic music. Brainstorming sessions are another great place to play some subtle epic music that doesn’t distract the participants from focusing.
- Video game
Video game music has to be the surprise entry on this list. But to many gamers, this won’t be a surprise at all, and that’s because video games are designed in such a way that the visual and auditory responses are taken into consideration. So if you are looking for some music that is going to help you concentrate and provide a better experience overall, then we suggest you turn to video game music. The video game genre also gives you a number of sub-genres that might interest you as well.
Regardless of what music category you choose, the essential thing is to play music that assists you and not something that distracts you.
