    I enjoy listening to music when I'm doing some work round the house, such as cleaning and tidying. I feel that I work faster with the music on. When it comes to doing some work on the Internet or reading or writing I find music distracting and prefer to work in silence.

    Do you listen to music when you are working?

    Same here. When doing my stuff on the Internet, I don't want to listen to music. It's distracting and will make me lose my concentration with my work.

    Presently, I am not listening to music while working. I get distracted. I prefer silent environment. If I like to listen to music that is when I am cooking and cleaning the house. And when I am watching tv, I don't do any activity. This is one of my ways of unwinding from work...

    Yeah it helps me relax while working when there is music playing. I enjoy to hear love songs while doing my work online. :)

    For those that do enjoy music when working, do have you any preference for the type of music you prefer, for e.g. do you prefer soft background music or upbeat music turned up loud?

    For me as what I have said I prefer soft background music while working as it soothes and relaxes my mind and body.

    For myself, I only listen to music in my free time and doing nothing. I don't listen to music at all when working or even doing house chores or exercising because I won't be able to concentrate on what I'm doing.

    For me it depends on the music, eg music with lyrics will put me in a certain frame of mind, more real world, I'll listen to the lyrics and my subconscious will definitely be distracted.

    Whereas with instrumental music, eg classical or trance or techno, I can get lost in my work and it doesn't distract but can actually focus me more.

    Music can certainly affect our moods. I know that there are certain songs that I love to listen to when I need a little boost of motivation and a spark to get up and do something.

    I can't live without music! I'd listen to it pretty much all the time. It helps my concentration grow, even while working. And the nature of music really depends on the mood I'm in. :)

    I'm definitely a music lover when it comes to doing certain work. For example, when I am writing I feel like I can concentrate better, believe it or not, with music.

    I work from home and recently have started listening to music while I work. At first I thought it would be a distraction, but it actually picks up my mood and makes me more productive.

    I enjoy listening to some slow and romantic music in the time of cooking,painting and washing cloths.When I learn some chapters of history and geography I usually prefer silence.

    I listen to music just about all the time. Most of the time when I work I am always listening to some form of talk radio. Mainly political or religious talk radio.

    I do that a lot. I study with music beside me. I usually study during early evening with headphones and music becuase people are noisy outside my bedroom. Music helps me with distractions instead of it being a distraction.
