It is well known that music has positive mental and physical effects and can influence our mood, productivity and well-being. But, what are the benefits of listening to music at work?
Music stimulates our creativity, allows us to go beyond our mind and to elevate our thinking. It enables us to distance ourselves from what we are doing, putting us in a position of mental well-being. The emotions aroused by music or a song can in fact increase our imagination. Listening to music makes us feel good. Listening to pleasant music releases dopamine, which is responsible for the feeling of well-being. Therefore, it is easier for our mind to regain emotional balance. Especially if there are noises in the room, music can really restore calm and order. Particularly, nature sounds and classical music can help in this regard. Anyone who has listened to Bach once in their life will confirm this.
Moreover, some songs make us feel more energetic and improve our mood. They give us energy, strength and vitality. They help us exercise and run and stimulate our body to go further and to achieve new goals.
Listening to music can also help us to concentrate, improving our performance at work. It is recommended in jobs that tend to be repetitive and prolonged in time. In these cases, music helps us to find a suitable working rhythm and to keep it going over time. It is a great ally when we want to “estrange” from the outside world and focus on a report or presentation.
In some cases, music can also encourage teamwork because it creates a welcoming and pleasant atmosphere where everyone feels part of a whole. That also applies in rock concerts, where we are more inclined to express ourselves and to share the same emotions. Within the same group of people, music can also be a meeting point and a way to socialize.
