Is it okay to listen to music while studying?

I always listen to music or put the tv as background noise while I'm studying and I feel like it helps me concentrate (when I feel like it's bothering me or I get to a harder topic I turn it off), but every time my sister comes to my room and sees me doing this she always gives me a lecture that I'm not studying right. Is it okay to listen to music while studying even if I feel like is not harming my understanding in any way? #music #studying-tips #studying #test #college-essay #finals

I think if it helps you concentrate and study there is no harm in it. It is when or if it distracts you from studying it could become a problem. Everyone is different.

Yes, the right kind of music. I've actually read studies that listening to classical music helps you to focus. May not be what you wanted to hear but that's what the article said

Agree. Classical is the music to listen to if you must, no lyric content or vocals. However, to achieve complete focus on your studies, quiet, with no distractions whatsoever is always the best rule.

Agree.


I used to listen to classical music while I studied. No words so no distractions.

Hi,


If it works for you, it works. Some music with lyrics works for me and some doesn't. Some classical works for me, some puts me in a too-restful state. Different people are different. Find your zone and work it to your advantage.


Good luck!

Thank you comment icon As the others have said, classical music helps you relax and is a good choice for studying. However, if you find music that focuses you then, by all means, listen to it! Francesca Marrone

It is specific to an individual. I needed music to do mathematics as it help me get cut off and concentrate. I didnt use the same when I was doing English as it would hamper by ability to be fluent while writing. So try out your plan and choose whats best for you. And ask your sister to let you be!

Most of the time, studying with music has been super helpful for me. I love finding a good Lofi playlist to listen to while studying. Something that is calm, not catchy as to be distracting, and has a good rhythm to keep me focused. There's not a wrong way to study as long as you get results.

This is all about your preference. I personally cannot listen to anything if I am trying to concentrate. I need it very quiet to make me focus on the task at hand.


i have collegues who listen to music all day and they can still work. it is really what works for you. Your sister may be like me and cant listen to anything. be yourself and do what is best for you. if it works keep doing it.

This depends on the type of music you select :-) go for soft music on a low volume, it helps.

This is very person and situation dependent. I am constantly listening to music for either studying, reading, doing chores, at work, getting ready in the morning, cooking, etc. Music has been proven to reduce stress with many of these tasks. I would say if music helps you do that, helps you to focus and gain understanding on the topics you are studying, then by all means listen to it!
