Playlist for Productivity


I created this playlist for people who need to shut out the world and focus on their work.

When I’m working in the PhD office, I have a lot of writing and reading to do, which means I can’t listen to my usual car playlist or singing in the shower playlist. That’s just way too distracting! But sometimes I can’t focus with the whispering, nose sniffling, and keyboard typing that comes with working in a communal space. I’ve tried earplugs and I can’t even tell the difference between them in my ears and not.

So what I need is:

  • A better way to tune out the surroundings than cheap earplugs

  • Music that doesn’t distract my productivity

Though classical music is a fantastic option for this, not everyone enjoys classical music. I like classical but I need to be in a certain mood or else I feel like I’m in 19th century Vienna.

Check out my playlist on Spotify. And please comment below your personal favorite tracks to work to. I’m looking for new music!

Disclaimer: This playlist is entirely biased to my own personal taste. You might not like this music but give it a try… It helps me when I need to write 1,000 words a day, so there’s that!
