9 Types of Music to Incredibly Boost Your Productivity

Music has always been a huge part of our everyday lives. It is said to be beneficial in enhancing your mood and health. It’s always present in our day-to-day lives, whether you’re into dancing, reading a book, watching a movie or just taking your dog out for a walk. Anywhere you go, there will always be music in the background. For most of you, music helps in enhancing your concentration and in boosting your creativity which is both important in work productivity.

But what kinds of music can make you more productive?

We list down the best types of music that will place you in the mood for work. While our list is not a one-size-fits-all scenario, these are the most common types of music that are said to have better effects in enhancing your mood while working.

Classical music

Many researchers claim that listening to classical music can boost your brain function and help you perform tasks faster and more efficiently. Some call it the “Mozart effect” which states that classical music can improve your overall mental health and well-being. Classical music is also found to be more calming, relaxing and stress-relieving. This is why most coffee shops prefer to have this playlist to give their place a better peaceful feeling.

With all these, it is evident that better focus and concentration leads to better productivity. Thus, good music for work. Aside from Mozart and Beethoven classics, you might want to check these classics:

  • Morning Sun by Irma Kantola
  • Wishes by Mewael Yemane
  • Feuilles d’automne by Charlot
  •  Bélair
  • Upraise by Eleanor Neylan
  • Rursee by Maik Kuefer

Nature music

Listening to nature music is also known to enhance your cognitive function and focus. These soothing sounds include rainfall, flowing water, waves, rustling leaves and other echoes of a natural element. These nature sounds will calm your nerves down and will give you a jumpstart on your cognitive abilities.

If you have a lot of officemates who chitchat most of the time, this music will conceal distracting noises around you making you more focused on yourself and your work.

Gaming music

Video games music is also a great choice since this type of music is designed to boost your gaming experience across all your senses. This kind of music will help you focus on your task while having an upbeat vibe for a stronger and “game face on” feeling.

Here are some games with good music for you to check out:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  • Assassin’s Creed 2
  • Halo
  • Final Fantasy 7
  • Battlefield One

Pump up songs

If the abovementioned list still doesn’t do the job for you, then perhaps pumped up hits may be your best bet. For some of you who get sleepy or too relaxed when listening to calm music, this one is the perfect choice for you. Pump up music refers to songs that give listeners a powerful, dominant and determined feeling after being listened to. But what are the best songs under this category? It can vary depending on your mood. Some choose EDM, some play Queen’s top hits, while others listen to 50 cent and Bon Jovi. So next time you need a confidence boost before a big presentation or speech, listen to your pump-up playlist. 

Instrumental covers

If you want a bit of both contemporary and classical music, then this is for you. Listening to lyrical music can make it difficult for people to concentrate. With instrumental music, you’ll get a soothing vibe while listening to a familiar tone. There are lots of lyric-less tunes available depending on the instrument that works best for you, others prefer acoustic guitar, some just piano while others choose saxophone for an ultimate chill and relaxing vibe. Try listening in a few instrumental covers to relax your senses so you can focus more on your work.

“Feel good” music

Never-ending deadlines? How do you pick yourself up from the pile of deadlines flooding over you? Irritated with your boss? Need a time out? Whatever it is, we have a quick fix for you. 

Our remedy? Loosen up and tone up that feel-good playlist! Scientifically speaking, music can stimulate your endorphins and can turn your mood around if you listen to the right music. This applies especially when you’re having a bad day at work.

While “feel good” music varies from one person to another, finding the perfect playlist can ultimately help you be more focused and driven at work.

Jazz music

Since work can be stressful, the relaxing effect of jazz music can help you focus better on work. When you listen to jazz, the tune triggers a soothing effect on your body which consequently lowers your heart and respiratory rate. Jazz music is also believed to positively affect your verbal memory, focus, and mood. This genre is another choice for those who are not into classical music but prefer lyric-less.

Cinematic music

Intense music like the ones in movies can make you feel determined over something you’re working on. A grandiose, blockbuster OST playing in the background can make even the most boring assignments feel like you’re changing the world. This feeling gives you a strong sense of drive and passion which will consequently push you to do your job. 

Cinematic music is empowering and can lift your spirit, essentially brightening your mood. So if you’re feeling a bit tired and weary, try listening to some epic-style cinematic music that will surely give you that extra push! Start by listening to one of our favorites: The Greatest Showman.

Your favorite music

Working on a project you’re excited about? Then boost your mood and energy while you’re at it by listening to your favorite music! Studies show that personal choice of music will help you complete your tasks faster with more vigor. Keep this in mind next time you’ll be working on a stack of boring paperwork. Who knows? You might even come up with better ideas with such a joyous mood brought by your life song. 

 

Music has a way of filling up empty corners with a good vibe and substance. While it may help you relax, entertained and happy it can also help you do more things with great focus and concentration.
