Discussion on: Should I listen to music while coding?

Thanks for the insightful little post! 👏🏻 While listening to music does indeed expend energy, I still listen to music while working. Instrumentals and music with little lyrics work great for me when I am trying to concentrate on the task at hand. Songs packed with lyrics will distract me BIG time, so I opt to steer clear of them while working! 😅

haha, that's right Amelia. I also think lyrics-heavy songs should be avoided because part of the brain will start processing the lyrics. :D :D

That really depends on the person! Some people are distracted by lyrics, while others (such as myself) are generally more focused with lyrics. It depends on my mood, but there are a lot of days that nothing focuses me better than rock. Other days, it's contemporary. And still other days, it's full-blown metalcore (Wolves at the Gate, yo!!)
