Open plan workspaces don’t allow for much privacy or space to focus. More often than not your attention has to compete with office pedestrian traffic, the casual cubicle pop in, or your colleagues giggling while they scroll through the latest internet cat memes. Often the only way to drown out the noise, or rather to zone in on your work, means putting on a set of headphones and choosing the right track so you can concentrate on the task at hand.
Studies have shown that music helps to increase productivity as well as lift mood. But what to listen to and when? Classical music has been found to increase the intelligence of its listeners – also known as the Mozart Effect, while nature sounds have been found to improve concentration and levels of fulfillment. But sometimes listening to whale calls just can’t give you the kind of satisfaction that only Mick and The Stones can provide after a testing Monday morning meeting.
At Tranquini we understand that different folks require different strokes, and different times of the day require a different kind of playlist. So we’ve come up with a variety of working playlists to help you get through the work day. No matter your taste in music, you’re sure to find something here to help you destress and improve productivity.
The Morning Commute
The work week doesn’t start at the office. It starts on the morning commute. Like an athlete on the bus heading to a big game, this playlist will help you mentally prepare for what lies ahead, or at the very least, help you ignore the crazies on the other side of the subway car.
Time To Focus
Now that you’re at the office, its time to focus and get your affairs for the week in order. We think a bit of classical music hits just the right spot to get the desired effect.
The Big Meeting
So you’ve got all your affairs in order, and you’re almost ready for the big presentation. All you need now is some music to put you in the right frame of mind so you can own the room and win over that prized client.
The Afternoon Slump
Those dangerous post-lunch hours have arrived and you’re feeling kind of sleepy. But there’s much to be done. What you need is an energy boost to get you through the afternoon slump and find your second wind.
Feel Good Tunes
The day is almost over, you’ve got a lot done and you’re feeling pretty darn good about things. You need a feel good soundtrack to compliment your good mood that will finish off the day on a high note.
We’re confident that whatever the day throws your way, a bit of music will go along way to keep you positive, focused and destressed - that and a can of Tranquini.
