Remote Work Junkie - Remote work over money?

Do you listen to music while working from home? Here’s some interesting things we found about this:

🎢 Background music has been found to improve our performance on cognitive tasks, such as spatial or verbal ability tests, for short periods of time.

🎢 A meta-analysis found that music therapy is an effective way to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety.

🎢 In a Totaljobs survey, 79% of respondents said they’re more productive if they listen to music while they work. Among the survey’s 4,553 respondents, 48% said music helped them focus.

🎢 When you’re comfortable doing something, because you are skilled, experienced, and are more or less in autopilot mode, background music is more likely to help you achieve greater focus.

🎢 If you have to work on a boring or a simple task, music can enhance your attention by providing extra stimulation to your brain.
