Listening to music in the background can actually help you work and the right music can keep you calm.

Listening to music while you work can improve your mood and research has shown that it can make people more productive when they are in a particular mood state.

Music can also drown out any unwanted background noise, especially people talking which can be very distracting when trying to concentrate.

Music activates the pleasure centre of the brain and can prevent your mind from avoiding the states of distraction and habituation.

Youtube has a huge range of music that you can listen to, as of course does Spotify and other music apps. But you need to choose the right music that works for you.  Personally for me, the genres of Chillwave and Synthwave work really well, to relax and focus me on my work.  

Here are some nice examples to get you started...

Hope you love these videos as much as I do.  I have worked away for many hours work listening to these and they really help me focus. I even play them in the car!
