My Friday Favourite this week is Focus@Will - a website that provides attention amplifying music to help you focus and which helps you tune out distractions.
Attention Amplifying music
Lots of us play background music while studying or working, but it’s often the wrong type of music which distracts us. Focus@Will delivers “Attention Amplifying” music channels through a web browser that are scientifically designed to engage with your brains limbic system, sooth distraction and increase attention to the task at hand.
Focus@Will also allows you to use the Pomodoro technique, setting a timer for 25 minutes (or more) to help you get started with a job and work in short bursts – a technique that I, as the worlds biggest procrastinator, have long been a fan of!
If you’re sceptical – and as somebody who has always found background music distracting, I was – then I’d urge you to try the 30 day free trial and see if it works for you. It did for me!
Focus@Will Founders Interview
Erik Fisher also has a really interesting interview with the Focus@Will founders, Will Henshall and Jeff Straw, in episode 76 of the Beyond the to To Do List Podcast - well worth listening to!
