Benefits of Music in the Workplace
Music can be perfect for driving with the top down or jamming out with friends, but did you know it has many benefits when listened to in the workplace? An increasing number of people say that their productivity increased in the office due to this practice. This is great news for music lovers everywhere. If you’re finding it hard to be productive at your office or place of business, turn on the tunes and you may just find that your work is finishing itself.
Reduced stress is also a good side effect of bumping beats at work. Listening to music can have a very relaxing effect on our minds and bodies, in particular slow, quiet classical music. This type of music can have a beneficial effect on our physiological functions, slowing the pulse and heart rate, lowering blood pressure, and decreasing the levels of stress hormones. Similarly, music helps to brighten your mood. In the hustle and bustle of any job, there’s sure to be days when your mood might lean on the side of grumpy or irritable. When we listen to music we like, a chemical called dopamine is released in our brain, making us feel happy or content. Thankfully, this means you can just pop in your earbuds and listen to your favourite artist and that frown will likely turn upside down.
