Not sure how you do with music when you’re working or when you are resting but I find the right stuff at the right time does wonders for me!
I can’t work while playing music with words but there is some great instrumental stuff out there that just settles into the background and into your head and calms and relaxes create a great ambience for work.
I also love music when I meditate. Sometimes focussing on my breath just doesn’t work for me so listening to some music I can focus on a particular element or the feeling of the whole piece and try to clear my mind that way.
Here are some of my favourites – Spotify is my weapon of choice but I’m sure these playlists/artists/style are available on other platforms.
I follow Chilled Cow for Lo-fi
This is a lovely playlist curated by Chilled Cow
11 Healing and Spiritual Sounds (below) has some nice stuff to help with meditation and relaxation
And obviously there’s my latest 4-track mini album of delicious songs for meditation and reflection!
