We have always known that music tends to help most situations whether it be stress, sadness, the urge to dance, but we didn’t know that it can actually help people perform better at their work!!
In a new study from Mindful Labs, nine out of ten people performed better at work when they were listening to music. The participants were 81% more efficient and 88% more accurate. The different genres of music can affect different ways of working.
Pop music helps when working with deadlines, ambient music for solving equations, and classical can benefit you when working with numbers. But the one type of music that enhances all around performance is in fact Dance music. This is surprising on one end because we tend to get distracted by the tracks, but also can believe it because we do feel that Dance music pumps us up when we are working and pushes people to do better and get the tasks done.
