People do have a different kind of stress reliever when it comes to coding. Whenever I want to breathe and keep my head clear, I listen to music. It smooths my mood and aura to keep me going every day.
According to Dr. Masha Godkin, “Music activates both the left and right brain at the same time, and the activation of both hemispheres can maximize learning and improve memory.”
Somehow, it's like a magic wand that can help anyone to feel relax and good. As a programmer, you can rest for a while. Take a deep breath. Maybe a good 5 minutes so you can restart and find a new perspective. It really helps a lot. :)
I'm a fan of the following music genre:
- Rhythm and Blues
- EDM (Electronic Dance Music)
- Country Music
- OPM (Original Pilipino Music)
Whatever your profession is, music is something you can really depend on. Have it try sometimes, you'll see.
Can Music Help You Study and Focus?
