Music: Helpful or Distracting?

I love music and listen to it whenever I can.  Whenever I’m cleaning the house or hanging out at home by myself, I always get the music going.  When I know that I’ll be doing a tough work out, the thing that gets me through it and that I look forward to most is always my playlist. In fact, when I have a few new songs that I love, I usually want to work out just so I can listen to them while doing so.  Unfortunately, while music can be relaxing, it can also be a distraction.  When doing homework, especially when trying to read something, songs with words tend to keep me from fully absorbing whatever I’m trying to read.  Since I hate complete silence when I’m working (I find the silence actually distracting), my go-to option is usually some low-key electronic music.   Homework with a soundtrack is definitely more exciting than homework in silence.

  1. Hi Tenisha, I’m starting the first small business course. I liked you comment on music while studying. I too don’t want complete silence. I listed to “Spa Radio” on Pandora. No, I don’t go to sleep, it just gives a bit of a lift actually in the background. Hope your studies are going well.
