Usually I listen to one album on loop. The album depends on the mood. The point is to use music to give your brain a hint that you’d like to be in a focus mode.

To train your brain you need to spend some time putting effort not to do “not-coding” stuff while this particular music is playing. If you need to check email, messages, switch focus — you just put the music on pause.

It has to be familiar enough piece of music so you won’t find yourself wondering in the lyrics. Also familiarity gives you awareness of time.
