As some of you may know – I spent many years working in the music industry. For me music has always been such a passion. I’ve core memories stemming around a music event or when I first heard a song. The soundtrack to my life has been enjoyable, colourful and I feel extremely lucky to have spent so many years immersed in such a creative environment.

I especially like some music to listen to when I’m working. The good news is that research indicates that music boosts productivity as well as numerous other benefits. Yay!

Dr. Lesiuk’s research focuses on how music affects workplace performance. In one study involving information technology specialists, she found that those who listened to music completed their tasks more quickly and came up with better ideas than those who didn’t, because the music improved their mood.

My good friend, Candice McKenzie who I worked with at Atlantic Records has admirably maintained her strong passion for music and continues to DJ internationally. I often put on one of her mixes when I want to make the most of my day. Here’s one for you to enjoy too!
