Work from home is quite a challenge because of all the distracting background noises and chaos. Trying to get that busy work environment in your house is next to impossible. But again you can get somewhere close with some music. Music has a very calming effect on your mind, it said to increase productivity and help concentrate better.
Music without words is said to be the best for concentration. Research says that music with words can be distracting because we tend to concentrate on the words and lyrics instead of the music. Plus it is basic human tendency to hum, sing and dance to music with words, and you do not want that when you are working right?
But while doing a mindless task like folding clothes or doing anything around the house, music with words can help you a lot. It is said that the beat of the song determines how fast you do the work, fast beats you will work faster and same is the situation for slow beats.
You can create playlists of your favourite music according to your mood and task. For example you can keep a particular bunch of songs for a particular task. This is kind of like training your mind. When that particular songs will play your mind will automatically know what to do and hence you will get done with the work faster. Classical and instrumental music works wonders in situations like these.
But if for some reason classical and instrumental music is not your thing, try listening to natural sounds. For example waterfalls, sound of a wind blowing, birds chirping and so on. Nature sounds also have a soothing effect on your mind.
