A pleasant day Fellow Mylotters, I was quite surprised with what I have experienced today, as I was able to finish my writing having a music on the background. Whereas before, I cannot concentrate well if a music was being played. So I might rather close the player and shut it off. But it was totally different today, that I was able to finished it as well as submitted it. Quite strange but I am happy with the result.

Music actually helps me as I seem to work to the rhythm of whatever song is playing.

Hello airasheila. I think every people has different perception about music. For me, music will inspire me when I read or learn something. Just like a kid, they can learn ABC faster if you teach them the way making the ABC as a song. That really works and proven by science and physiology research. Well, maybe you are different compare to usual case. I will really enjoy my reading, study or working with music in the background.

In general music can help a person concentrating on completing a task which needs to be done. How far music works depends among other things on the psychological set-up of the listener, and the volume of the music. What works for one person may not work for another. In my case it is soft music.

Good for you. UNlike you though, I prefer to have soft music or soothing "noises" while I work to aid in my concentration and possibly to block out noises in my surroundings. I don't get distracted from my own music, but I tend to be thrown off-concentration if I hear some cries or people talking loudly, kids running up and down. But them we all have different preferences on how we can concentrate more.

I love it when the radio is on. I also feel as if i get a headache when the radio is off im so used to having music on it its weird to not have it on. I am big on music and love to dance and love to hear it. When in highschool when i used to study it was easier to study with the music on for some reason i know alot of people want the peace and quiet but that would have made me fall asleep. I wish i had a radio at work that i good play music on but im not in the office alone most of the time so that wouldnt work anyways.

The tv is on during most of the time that I work. I do find it difficult to write especially when the daily soap drama is being telecast, but I am left with no choice. During day time mom watches her tv shows in the other room, but at night I have to deal with the tv volume and still manage to write. It is quite a challenge I tell you! I can understand how you must be feeling.

Hello airsheila.. good job on achieving that new ability.. but for me it is really impossible.. I definitely couldn't do what you just did.. even when I'm reading something, I need silence as my brain can capture the information easily rather than noisy situation.. but I'm not surprised that you managed to do that.. this is because..there are some skills that you will achieve if you do something.. just like your experience.. before this you couldn't write when the music is on.. but after severals encounter with such situation..your brain managed to adapt to the environment and thus enable you to do it.. That is why..there's a saying that said.. Practices make perfect.. Good Job again.. Happy MyLotting..:)
