I know, I know, it was only a couple of posts ago I was moaning about how much I listen to music. And how, this constant beratement of music in my life: on my walks, during work hours, with God in quiet times etc etc, was slowly numbing me to the power of music. I’m aware this is a total 180 turnaround.
Maybe life isn’t as black or white as a single permanent solution.
So today, in my lunch break, I write to tell you that working from home with headphones in has really helped me focus on work and “get in the zone”.
When working from home, the default when listening to music, is to have it blasting out from my phone. But there’s something more focused about listening through headphones.
- Better sound
- Cuts off outside noise
- Clear break from work, as well as a clear entering into work-mode.
- Also, a lot of headphones these days allow you to pause/play the next song, without actually picking up your phone and getting distracted by personal e-mails/messages.
That’s it. If you’re struggling to focus working from home, try using headphones for your music.
