yes I do like to listen to music when I am working at home like, cleaning, the house, washing plates, folding the washed clothes etc, but not when I am writing because once I write, I am concentrating. I can't concentrate when there is music because my tendency is to sing with the music played. Lol.. What about you? do you love to listen to music while working? Many people do. Just curious to hear your story.

I listen to music all the time except the time when i am trying to learn something that's really important like in my semester exams ..I never listen to music when i am reading ,learning or just mugging things up..it helps because it takes less time..The music i listen to is so catchy that it can sway my concentration off my work ...but all the other times i m listening to something or the other

Oh!! its' a no,, no to me to listen to music while studying or concentrating on something. But admire people who can study while listening to music. I know of a student that he can not concentrate to his studies if there is no music. Well, that is his learning style. There are different learnings styles of people and that makes each of us to be unique.. hahaha we are not the same.

Im always fond of listening music while working at home whether doing some thing at computer or doing some writing work or playing with friends but music should be of my choice otherwise it distrubing me and not making the concentration whtever doing.i tend to hear music thru earphone while all are gone to their respective bed so i can enjoy with music.i record every song which i like to hear the most.

[i]Hi Bebs, We are the same. But, there are times when I want to search for any music at you tube and will listen while typing! It inspires me and always I will end up watching the videos, singing with it and stop typing! Not good! LOL![/i]

Hi Che, hahaha that is always the case when I listen to music. I keep on singing and stop my work much more if it's in you tube where I can see the videos of the singers I like? hmmm!!! It will really disrupt my work.

Hi Bebs! I also enjoy listening to music when doing house chores. I don't play it too loud, but just enough to block out any other noise around me. I do the same when I'm online and thankfully I don't get distracted by it.

Amen,i love listening to music while doing household chores as well. Somehow I need to have a "domestic soundtrack" as it inspires me to scrub the tub & the like :). Sometimes we need to get our "working groove" on & music gets me going!

I enjoy listening music when I am at work, but sometimes it depends upon my mood. When I am in rush or serious with what I am doing, I prefer to be in silence.

I agree with that too. When we need to concentrate on a certain job, no music but when it is just ordinary work, music can ease boredom.

Same here.I like listening to music when i am doing light work like cleaning,cooking,arranging and ironing clothes but the things in which i require concentration and attention are to be done in a peaceful and silent atmosphere.So when i am working on my office reports then i do not play music. Happy mylotting

I absolutely agree with you. We are the same, when I am working things that need concentration, I will turn off the music, but it is just like washing or cleaning the house, it's good to have music.

I liketo listen to music and dance to it while I'm working. This can be cooking, cleaning the house, working online, taking care of the pets and plants. Even if its just imaginary music in my head. It makes work more enjoyable, you know?

I love music also, I could play music or MTV where I work. It helps kill the time tho, do you think so? music helps you release stress and help you moving.

Yes, I do listen to music while doing chores at home. I prefer Christian music or mellow sounds most especially the old songs. I think music has power to uplift my spirit. But like you, I don't like any sort of sound whenever I am writing. I want full concentration and hates any sound that will disturb me.

I certainly like to have noise in the background whilst I am working. I like to listen to a local chat programme that also gives the news. I like to know what is going on or what has happened in my country. If I am at home, then I usually listen to the same call in programme as I like to hear what solutions people have for these hard economic times . I used to have a weekly column in a Sunday newspaper and again, whilst I was writing this I still had to have something going on in the background.

Oh wow!! that is something different. There are people who can concentrate more when there is a background noise. Me? I can't.. the more I don't understand what I am reading or what I am going to write when my environment is noisy.

I'm always listening to music, even when I'm writing. It keeps me moving so I don't just sit there and do nothing. I will que up my iPod with some rocking tunes to get things done faster and cleaning is more fun that way, especially for the kids.

Lol I know that... music is really soothing. It inspires you to work, well of course active physical jobs not mental jobs like writing? I can't listen to music while I write. I am disturb.. because I will sing with the music too.

Yes, I do listen to music but it should be soft and mellow. It stresses me out if it's too loud. I don't want to use earphones too as it makes me deaf after an hour. I'd rather hear the music from a stereo or digital player. Happy mylotting and cheers.
