Did you know that music has a massive impact on our mood and the way we act? Why do you think music is played in shops? So that we spend more money of course!
Fast-paced music makes us subconsciously move faster with footsteps and movements that go with the rhythm of the music. Similarly, slow music is more relaxing and slows you right down. In fact, everything from how fast you walk to your heartbeat slows down and relaxes when you listen to slow music.
This is a great reason to listen to music while you clean your home, study for a test or work on your car! Before we start looking into why music is great to listen to while you work, have a look around and see if you have a high-quality set of speakers! If you don’t, check out this review.
