With September being Classical Music Month, now is the perfect time to learn about the best type of music for productivity and focus. With more employees managing their own work environment at home or remotely, music can now be a useful tool for boosting brainpower and eliminating procrastination.
Studies have shown classical music to have some incredible effects on the human body and brain. In particular, the melodies and composition of a lot of classical music pieces have been shown to promote focus and act as an effective aid in reducing ‘brain fog’. This can make completing complex and creative tasks easier.
In addition to this, classical music has been shown to reduce blood pressure, fight depression, and encourage healthy sleep. While these benefits may not directly affect workflow, they can contribute to a more productive day overall. For some more benefits to listening to classical music, check out the infographic below.
