Having trouble getting things done at work or staying focused on the task at hand? Listen Live to 93.1 KISS-FM. A new study indicates music can really boost your productivity.

In the study, those who listened to music came up with better ideas and accomplished more tasks than those who didn’t.

Why? Because the music improved their mood, with doctors saying it helps encourage the release of dopamine in the reward area of the brain.

“When you’re stressed, you might make a decision more hastily; you have a very narrow focus of attention,” said researcher Teresa Lesiuk, an assistant professor in the music therapy program at the University of Miami. “When you’re in a positive mood, you’re able to take in more options.”

Yet another reason to make 93.1 KISS-FM the radio station for your work station!
