Music in its nature brings relaxation to the mind of its listener. Whether it is a mellow, rock or ballad, music is still a sort of relaxation. But, what if you are in a an office or working in a project wherein you require a room for concentration. And music is being played and heard all over the working area, would you request to stop it for a while or just go with the flow and just let it be? Or this will bring you more inspiration to work on to the project that you are dealing with?

It's too hard for me to work with music on. I really love to listen to my jams, but I just can't when I need to get some work done. I get way distracted and all I can do is sing along, and that is never good! I am jealous of all the people that can work like this. Lucky!

It depends on the music for me. If I'm listening to my favorite music, it makes the day fly by for me. But if I have to hear music that I can't stand and on top of that it blares so loudly that I can't even hear my "mental" music, the day could turn into years for me. For instance, when I worked at a department store... no more words needed. But working on the computer listening to my favorite music. Day goes almost too fast.

I think that listening to music can help you do things.I find that if i am doing the house work i tend to feel that it takes the bordom off the house work.I am one for listening to music while i am on the pc as well.

I think music helps one way or another with work however if you would want to focus on something like maybe a big meeting or a major presentation, it would be better to actually turn the music off while completing the work and switching it on again when you just want to relax and appreciate the work that you have done.
