"Turn off your mind, relax and float down stream..."

Do you like reading and/or studying and listening to music at the same time?

I do. I know we have to focus, and songs may be distractive or something like that. Nevertheless, I do love listening to some ‘noise’ while I’m doing something quite productive.

I am not doing anything at the moment but listening to some songs I like. Actually, not only am I listening but also watching them.

The power music has over us is incredibly interesting. Music may change our humor dramatically, some would claim.   

I have actually found this website (Here) about how music affects our productivity.
According to it, music is so powerful that they affect our productivity (no shit Sherlock!): “One study in particular made it very clear that Baroque-period tunes appear to have a measurable impact on productivity.”

However, the same site would state, that it is important to listen to “music you are familiar with if you need to intensely focus for a project.”

Why is that?

The reasons is

that new music is surprising; since you don’t know what to expect, you are inclined to listen closely to see what comes next. With familiar music, you know what lies ahead and thus the sound doesn’t become your primary focus. While the “journey” of new music is certainly beneficial in other ways, you may want to tread a familiar path if you are using music to help get things done.

Ok, let us stop the mumble jumble in order to go to the point of this post. I would like to share some videos you may be familiar with so that you can listen to them in order to relax.

The first one is "alright" (Supergrass)

The second one is “Human” by the Killers. 

The third one is “Summer of ‘69” by Bryan Adams.

The forth one is “Patience” by Guns n’ Roses.

The fifth one is “The Sound of Silence” by Simon & Garfunkel.

Last, but not least “Don’t Cry” by Guns n' Roses. 

Do you think my playlist is a good one? What would you change? 

Have an extraordinary week!
