Are you struggling to get through your Monday? Studies show that music can actually help by releasing dopamine in the reward area of the brain. It can also help you make better decisions, lift your mood, and make Monday into a more fun day. Everyone has a different go to for their music. At GoCanvas, it’s no different. Here’s some of the music we listen to as we ease back into the work week.
1. Slow Electronic Build Up
Both our office manager Nick and web developper, Kam, enjoy electronic. These songs build up to great energetic beats, without the lyrics to get in the way of your work.
2. Rocking to Flogging Molly
One of our web developers, James, loves Pandora. He makes channels with Flogging Molly, Gangastagrass and churns out great code.
3. Still Enjoying Disney
Melanie, one of our mobile app consultants, loves listening to Disney. Not only is it safe for work, but also leaves a smile on her face.
4. Top 100 Standby’s
Top 100 is a standby in our office. From Jason, our research associate, to Kalliopi a senior mobile app consultant, this music gets your blood pumping!
5. Ease Your Way Into Work
Lynn, our newest graphic designer, sticks with more mellow indie in her playlists. The music isn’t perfect for dancing, but it helps her ease into the day.
6. Tapping Feet with Americana
While I love a lot of different music, Americana music is probably my favorite. This song by the Civil Wars helps me get started writing at the beginning of the week.
