‘Say no to radio’: How I use music and sounds to work

If you’re anything like me, you can’t work in silence. I sit there with 10 different books open in front of me not actually reading any of them, because the silence is somehow too loud for me to focus. So I look for ways to break the silence.

I tried having the TV on, but it gets a little distracting. I either end up engrossed in the action and not doing any work, or working hard and missing the action. So, I turn to music. Studies have shown that music can help with focus, especially during study sessions.
