Concentration & Music
When my Arthritis is flaring I really struggle to concentrate, I have tried a wide range of things to improve it including:
- Work Variety
- Stimulating work locations
- A couple of supplements that were recommended in “Making a good brain great“
I have made some progress, but not enough. Just by chance last week I was listening to music set to random and some meditation music started playing, I rapidly noticed that my concentration improved, particularly the time I could concentrate for increased any my typing speed nearly doubled. I was pretty shocked that music could have such a significant effect so I tried again a couple of days later and it worked. I am now planning to build it into my normal working practice.
The strange thing is that my Sister in Law bought me this music last Christmas because she knew I had started meditating, but at the time I didn’t meditate to music and in fact still don’t use this music so it had just languished on my hard drive and it certainly isn’t the sort of music I normally enjoy. However while I am working it seems to have a sort of hypnotic effect.
I had a quick look for the music online but failed to find it, however it sounds pretty much like this.
