Music isn't just a means of entertainment—it's also known to improve motivation and productivity at work.
Research has found that certain types of music can be beneficial to us while we work. Some genres seem to improve our ability to process information and focus on the task at hand. Some help block out distracting background noise. And others sync with our brain waves to keep the creativity flowing.
We took the guesswork out of selecting music for productivity by curating a playlist with over two hours of motivational tunes that will help you get in the zone. Don't worry,we won't bore you with too much Bach (no offense to classical music lovers!).
Whether you're at the office or working from home, check out our Music for Productivity Playlist here and keep your productivity flowing!

Sunset Lover by Petit Biscuit
This lo-fi hit falls under the genre of house music. It has an upbeat, yet calming melody that keeps you engaged with whatever task you have in front of you. Because it doesn't have lyrics, this song is ideal for deep work and focus tasks.
