Working Better with Music

Music can boost spirits and increase productivity. Get inspired by watching the Whistle While You Work scene from Snow White and reading a historical perspective published by the American Public Health Association. See below for listening tips and guides to listening while you work. 

Devices - use an Amazon Echo, Apple Home Pod, or Google Nest for hands-free control
Fixed Tempo - select music with a fixed tempo and constant volume 
Headset - use earbuds or headphones so you don't bother neighbors
Lyrics - listen to background music without lyrics to avoid distraction
Major Key - Use music in major keys since minor keys are depressing
Nature - Consider streaming sound of birds or the ocean waves
Tasks - play music when doing repetitive tasks to ease monotony
