Playlists for working at home

Find out below what tunes you should be plugging into to help keep you focused or boost your creativity.
A recent investigation into the power of music revealed the must-have tunes to include in your working from home playlist to maximise productivity and creative thoughts.

Which songs will help you focus?

According to research published in the journal of Neuroscience and Behavioural Psychology, participants who were tasked with identifying Arabic numbers within a random selection of images and, were listening to either classical or rock music, were 0.2 seconds quicker at completing the task.
Additionally, those listening to classical or rock were 87% more likely to correctly identify the numbers than the group that wasn’t listening to any music.
Elsewhere, if you need to cancel out background noise, researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in New York found that nature sounds, such as rainfalls and trickling water, can help you to keep focussed.

Which songs boost creativity?

Research has found that happier music could be your best bet when wanting to enhance creativity.
When this theory was tested by scientists from the Netherlands and Australia, the study found that those who listened to Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons, Op. 8 No. 1, RV 269, “Spring”: I. Allegro’ were 23% more creative than those participants that sat in silence during the test.
