Music can improve your workday by providing a sense of focus. I work from home so I need some sort of background sound so that I don’t get completely lost in my head or go insane and there is only so much baseball that I can watch in a given day!
On top of that I have a listening rotation which dictates what I listen to when. I listen to a classic record, a piece of 20th-century popular music, a punk rock record, a new album and an album from a current artist I’m studying discography. This really helps to make the hours go by. It gives me something to connect too and also something to look forward too from the moment I open my eyes.
