As a music therapist and writer, I wouldn´t miss the great chance to share my personal experience with music (this time with songs) which helps me fulfill the tasks of my working routine.
A lot has been said about music. And even though there are some general truths about it, the effects of music and sounds may differ highly from one individual to another. And there´s no such thing as a musical prescription for everyone.
However, here are 7 interesting brain hacks. Hope they´re music to your ears too:
Set the morning tone with a vibrant song
A really good song can define your whole attitude for your upcoming day. It is a short, doable and positive habit to acquire. It also may be the beginning of a chain of morning positive habits. But that depends on your time management! My personal recommendation is Song + Tao passages, which are extremely deep yet brief.
Trick your brain with clubby songs before you start working
Whenever I had to sit down and do a great deal of paperwork, I discovered that choosing the same catchy song that could totally be danced at the club did wonders. Nowadays, it is my routine to play that song before I sit down for hours and tackle a lot of desk tasks.
Give yourself a 3-minute break – with a song!
Did you know that the average length of a song is 3 minutes? With this information, you can make sure your breaks don´t overextend. Also, keep in mind that your attention span as an adult is getting shorter and shorter. If possible, take the necessary breaks. Your brain will appreciate it. (And your ears, too.)
