Can White Noise Help You Focus

If you are searching for a few ways to boost productivity listening to white noise can help you focus. Here’s what you need to know.

What Is White Noise?

White noise is a combination of sound frequencies between 20 and 20,000 Hz, that when played together create a hushing sound. It sounds something like when you have a few seconds of static on your TV. The sound of a vacuum cleaner is also a type of white noise.

How Does White Noise Help?

Studies show that white noise can help you drown out distractions increasing your focus while completing tasks, blocking out sound, and helping to improve your sleep. You can listen to a white noise track, a YouTube video on repeat, or with our headphones. And the benefits are not just for adults but for helping babies sleep too.

What If I Don’t Like White Noise?

Try at least a few different tracks before you make your final decision, but if it’s not for you there are a few other options:

  • Classical music can boost productivity
  • Sounds of nature are soothing for work and relaxation
  • ASMR can help you get to sleep
  • Binary beats are perfect for relaxation and meditation

While sound therapy can help, don’t count out the productivity-boosting benefits of unplugging!
