do you listen to music when you work?

Post by Moore » 15 Oct 2009, 03:39

Sometimes at work I want to listen to music and i switch on my CD player or my ipod and listen to music and it helps me to relief the tension and to concentrate.
What about you?

I try time to time and enjoy it when I get it to work. More often than not I have trouble keeping the ear piece in my ear (I have to keep one ear open at my job) or the cords get in my way. I'm a loader at UPS by the way.

Well, it all depends for me.Sometimes music helps me to concentrate a lot, but at times my head is just full of thoughts, and music makes it even worse

I wish I could. A lot of people in my work unit do. However, I am the lead and don't have great hearing and people are always calling out to me over the cubicle walls are coming up to my desk and so I try to keep my ears open as much as I can.

I sometimes listen to music when working because it helps me to remove stress that comes from work

I listen to music almost everytime I work especially when the work is boring or am tired or when I feel stressed out.
It gives me energy and passion

When I'm working, I prefer silence. However, when i cook I start the radio and enjoy the music while preparing the food. :banana-dance:

I wish I could. I cannot concentrate. Occasionally, instrumental has worked wonders though.

Sometimes! I like listening to music but sometimes find it's difficult to concentrate with music on. It depends on my mood.

I listen to music whenever possible.

Work-wise, I just have to adjust type of music/volume for the specific task at hand.

I listen to music while working or reading. But I usually have tracks for different tusks.

Yes I do, but with a very low volume. It helps my work go well and smoothly while I also enjoy myself.

I do - it makes me more productive. Usually I listen to the radio, but sometimes a CD if I am in the mood for something in particular.
