Admin Post I do not have much knowledge about classic music, but I've always heard that playing some classical music lightly in the background while you're reading/studying/working will have an overall positive effect for you. So I did a little Googling and found a few lists of recommended things to listen to... and then created a Spotify playlist from that... and I've basically had classical music going in the background in my office all week, while I'm otherwise working on something else. I don't know that I can measure the effect in a tangible manner, but I really like it. I'm just playing it from an old iPad which I placed on a shelf on the other side of the room, playing very softly. It's not connected to a stereo system, so there are not really any dynamics to it. But it seems to make me feel encouraged.
