I could list a few things that help me stay focused throughout the day, but right now I’d like to talk about just one: ambiance. That’s right! I work best when I have tons of natural light coming through my window, the temperature is more warm than cold, the air smells of sweet cinnamon inspired candles, and… when there is noise. Yup, I am one of those people who cannot work in total silence. Most days, I either have the TV on, music streaming or a record spinning—but all three can eventually become distracting when I switch from
So here’s today’s tip: If you’re like me, and need some background noise while you work, you might want to try this neat little app called Noisli. I discovered it a while ago, and I just love their sound options. My favorite is their Coffee Shop one, but I also like mixing a few different nature sounds together. It has cool features, like the ability to save your mixes, a timer, and even a distraction-free text editor. It’s the perfect solution for when I need something to fill the silence while still letting me think. So if you decide to try it out, let me know which sounds you liked best!
