Awesome Energy Lifehacks #7: Turn Up the Music

If you are feeling sleepy at work, why not crank up the volume on your favorite tunes? Studies have proven that listening to music can help to boost energy levels, but a driving beat can help you to focus on the mundane everyday tasks at work as well. According to the Scientific American, music does a number of things:
  • Dulls pain
  • Distracts your mind from boredom or fatigue
  • Elevates mood
  • Increases endurance
  • Has a positive physical affect on your body during exercise
While most of the things listed above pertain to working out, you can see how they can benefit you at the office as well!

You'll have more endurance to sit in that office chair for hours on end, and your mind will be distracted from your sleepiness and boredom. Unless your company bans it, it's time to get your jam on and boost those energy levels!
