We’ve all read the articles that tell us to not sit for hours on end, don’t stare at our screens without a break, and if possible get a few minutes of fresh air between meetings. I like all of these ideas, and depending on the physical environment (and latitude) where you work, perhaps you can take advantage of this advice.
There is another element that has become absolutely essential to help me regardless of whether or not fresh air or a 5 minute walk is an option.
Not just any music. In my case, a very specific type of music has transformed how I stay energized, focused, and inspired to keep crushing the day.
One of the greatest things about music is that there is a genre (or multiple genres) for everyone. What I get from listening to the style of music I’m most passionate about may not be what works for you. And that’s okay…it doesn’t have to.
It’s worth trying to incorporate non-stop music (other than when in meetings, obviously) into your work flow. Too distracting? Try a lower volume setting, not switching genres. Play what you love, and experience your days differently.
Thanks for being here.
