Study/Reading Music Playlist

BooksbandspizzaFeb2016 - Day 19

For some people, listening to music while studying (or reading) is a good way to focus. Personally, listening to slow, calming music is what makes me feel more focused and productive, and not fast-paced stuff.

Here, I’ve compiled a list of Study/Reading music split into two parts. The first is the instrumentals and the second is slow songs with lyrics. I don’t mind both, but when I study I prefer the instrumentals, lyrics can sometimes be a distraction. Especially when you want to sing along. But for reading it’s fine.

I also use music to time my studying. Each part of this playlist is roughly am hour long, the whole thing is two hours. It’s supposed to be better to study in short, designated amounts of time rather than cramming it all in one night. (We are all guilty of this) This playlist can serve as a time.

Example: Listen to the first half of the playlist while studying. No breaks whatsoever. Once it’s finished you can take a break then go back to studying while listening to the second half of the playlist.

Honestly, this playlist doesn’t necessarily have to be for studying or reading purposes only. It’s good for if you want to relieve stress or fall asleep as well.
