I love music! I have it on all the time. Maybe it has something to do with my wanting to drown out the noise of six screaming kids but I feel it helps me focus on work while gets me pumped up to get more done.
The problem around my house is that if I put on headphones, I can’t always hear that screaming turns from a disagreement to a real emergency. That is why I have speakers scattered all over my home but that solution is far from perfect
