Home Office Fatigue? Get up and Move with Whole Home Audio
Studies show that music and movement stoke creativity and promote a more productive workday.
Let’s face it: the workday can feel like a slog. You have to deal with the monotony of your daily tasks, the stress of impending deadlines, and the aches and pains that come from sitting at a desk all day. And now that many of us are working from home, it’s even worse!
Thankfully, there’s a simple solution. Studies show that music and movement throughout the day promote productivity and wellbeing. In his book “This Is Your Brain on Music,” neuroscientist Daniel Levitin says that music helps us deal with repetitive tasks and can even increase our concentration.
Listening to music and moving around are essential elements of a happy, healthy workday. And if you have a whole-home audio system wired throughout your Garden City, NY property, it’s time to take advantage of the benefits. Stream music and more to any room of your home, and never miss a beat of your workday.

How Music Affects Productivity
You may have heard of the "Mozart effect," which says that listening to classical music while you work makes you smarter. Well, it's a real thing -- but maybe not in the ways that researchers previously thought. While some suggest that music with lyrics doesn't help, one study showed that instrumental music enhanced concentration for nearly 15 minutes.
Researchers also discovered that it mattered less what music you listened to; instead, how you felt about it.
And there’s plenty of science to back up the claim. Merriam Sarcia Saunders, LMFT told Business News Daily:
"Music can have a dopaminergic effect on the brain, meaning it creates dopamine. Dopamine is what stimulates the prefrontal cortex, which is the center of the brain responsible for planning, organizing, inhibition control, and attention.”
In other words, listening to your favorite artists helps you stay productive.
How Movement Affects Productivity
Everyone knows that sitting at a desk all day isn't the healthiest lifestyle choice. You have to get up and move around now and then. Offices across the country have implemented "sit less, move more" programs to encourage employee wellbeing. And that shouldn't stop when you're working from home.
A study published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine linked "better performance" to more active employees. Additionally, "lower sitting time during workdays also improved performance." Subjects remained more productive and engaged throughout their workday if they sat less and moved more.
And what better way to move more than by dancing to your favorite tunes -- throughout your property.
