Neuroscientists have recently discovered that certain types of personalized music can help you focus, reduce distractions, and maintain productivity when working and studying. Focus@will’s exclusive instrumental music library keeps your mind from avoiding two undesirable states: distraction and habituation. Distraction can be the result of anything in day-to-day life, while habituation stems out of being bored with your surroundings or task at hand. Our music is crafted to balance your mind between distraction and habituation, keeping you focused on your work.
Focus@will’s studies reveal a 200-400% increase in focus time with our most active users. The average productivity in a one-hour focus@will session is 75% – which is far greater than most people who don’t use our service. We see also dips in usage over the weekends, so we know our subscribers are using Focus@will primarily during work hours—when they need to focus the most.
When you listen to music, sound waves hit your eardrums and are transferred to your brainstem. The locus coeruleus, or decision-making parts of your brain, are impacted by the sound, and listening to the right kind of music can increase focus and productivity. Focus@will’s trick is to occupy your brain just enough to let you work without causing distractions.
