Many of my peers are extreme music lovers. They work, paint, and do tasks to music that they love. They know their artists forwards and backwards, but if you are like me, music is nice to have but is sometimes a distraction when working.
I personally love background noise that has no particular significance to keep me company. I hate dead silence, but I'm also uncomfortable in a setting with too much music. Noisli, is so far, perfect for my needs. Noisli has various background noises from nature that you can mix and match to create a setting best suited for you while you work. They also have an app coming soon. I can't wait! Productivity x9000!
