Jamming to the right playlist at work will get you over the midweek hump and that afternoon slump. Think about it; you wouldn’t go for a run or the hit weight room without some motivational tunes. And there’s a science backed reason for that. It’s not all in your head, or is it?
According to Fast Company’s article, The Surprising Science Behind What Music Does To Our Brains, “Listening to music can drown out our brain’s cries of fatigue. As our body realizes we’re tired and wants to stop exercising, it sends signals to the brain to stop for a break. Listening to music competes for our brain’s attention, and can help us to override those signals of fatigue.”
Music can help you make major gains at work too. It increases focus, promotes creativity, and improves reasoning skills. Because some work weeks feel a lot longer than others, we asked our friend Chris Huber at Extra Chill to pull us through with this Weekday Grind playlist. Turn it up!
