Classical music is peaceful and harmonious, making it one of the best music options to listen to when studying. There is evidence that suggests that listening to Mozart improves mental performance; it’s called the Mozart effect. Listen to ambient instrumental music. Movie soundtracks also work well. The sounds of nature – such as rain, waves, jungles or animals – are also relaxing and you will feel like you’re in another world. Remember that you’re studying, not crashing a rave, so listen to your music at a moderate volume. The lower, the better. The louder it is, the more it will distract you. Your main purpose is to study, so keep your music playing in the background.
Create a playlist that contains all your favourite songs to avoid having to search for new songs every five minutes. This will save you time and maintain your level of concentration while studying.
Do not listen to music on the radio while studying. The dialogue of the presenters and ads will distract you. You should have complete control of your study music.
Make playlists that last for 40 to 50 minutes. When the playlist ends, this will act as a reminder to take a short break.
Listen to music before you go to bed or before an exam. This will make you feel relaxed and put you in the right state of mind.
While choosing the best music for studying is important, you should avoid spending hours selecting the songs. At the end of the day, what matters is not choosing the best music in the world, but that your study time is productive.
