do you listen to music when you work?

This is the place for readers of poetry. Discuss poetry and literary art. You can also discuss music here, including lyrics. Also, you can discuss poets themselves, in addition to poetry.

I listen to music everyday at work. It makes the time fly by. Plus, you can sing and dance with the music too.

Yes and no. When I am at my day job I do not, but when I am writing at home I do. I have playlists set up for each of my characters POVs, so when I am plugging away on a chapter, I have the right mood and mindset to keep within the styles I want for each one. If I need to change the mood of a scene, I also change my music accordingly. There are times where I shut the music off to read back and edit bits and pieces, but generally it is always on.

I open the radio on my way to work to help boost my energy, and I put my earphones on when I walk to work to keep me company

I still listen to music occasionally, but lately I've been listening to more podcasts while I work out. If I'm working out in nature (hiking, biking, running), I prefer listening to nature sounds around me instead of distracting myself with music or podcasts.

I can't get through my work without music. Whether it's writing or even my housework, I have to have one fo my playlists going on in the background, or my favorite CD's playing.

When I was working, I could not listen to music on most days. As a teacher, I had to set the example for my students. On conference days, when time was not structured by meetings, I would play music while I worked. Now that I’m retired, I listen to music everyday. It is great for relieving stress and just relaxing.
