If you’re like the majority of the EGM staff, you love having music in the background while you’re diving into projects—especially working remotely.
Yes, we have a Sonos at the office, but there’s nothing better than putting your own favorite playlist on repeat when you’re searching for some creativity, motivation, and inspiration.
According to an article on Inc., music has the power to improve your mood, sharpen your focus, and boost mental and physical performance. Listening to music you like causes the brain to release the chemical dopamine, which makes you feel good and eases stress and anxiety. Although there is plenty of research on which kinds of music are best for productivity, here are a few of our team’s faves.
