Focus At Will: Increase Productivity

Are you wanting to increase your productivity?

Increase ProductivityI have found an online tool that helps to boost productivity.  It is called Focus@Will and allows for your brain to tune out white noise and distractions, increasing your attention span and intensity of focus.  Here is an excerpt from their site explaining how it works:

How it Works

Most people can only concentrate for a maximum of about 100 continuous minutes before needing to take a quick break to stretch, move about, maybe get a drink of water, and so on before they resume for another session.

The focus@will system makes it easier for you to get into the concentration flow, and then keeps you there. It works in the background by subtly soothing the part of your brain, the limbic system, that is always on the lookout for danger, food, sex or shiny things.

We've learned that people working or studying tend to take about 20 minutes to acclimate to their environment enough to really focus on the task at hand. It takes time for your brain to get used to a stimulus and start “tuning it out” in a process called “habituation”.

Each piece of music phase sequenced by focus@will has a specific role in influencing how your brain habituates, enhancing your focus and reducing distractions. Characteristics such as musical key, intensity, arrangement, speed, emotional values, recording style, and much more determine what is played where and when.

Will Focus@Will Really Increase Productivity?

I have been using this tool for a few weeks now.  I love it!  I can focus on a project for longer periods of time – without getting tired.  This tool has allowed me to work through the afternoon without feeling sleepy.  I have opted for the paid version so it allows me to subjectively track how productive I feel each session is.  It also allows for a larger variety of music.

What kinds of music are available?

You won’t find Rock, Pop, Heavy Metal, and anything distracting.  Here are the categories they provide for music:

  • Classical
  • Focus Spa
  • Acoustical
  • Up-Tempo
  • Alpha Chill
  • Cinematic
  • Ambient
  • ADHD Beta

Give it a try – you have nothing to loose!

    I’m not one to listen to music while I work. The problem is, I get caught up in the music – I want to sing along, or beat with the rhythm, or listen for harmonies. However, I’ve been trying this since I got Dotty’s tip on Tuesday. I hardly even know it’s playing in the background, and I believe it does help with focus. And, it’s free. 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Dotty.
