I Have A Magical Playlist 🎶 To Instantly Get You In The Flow. No Really

I've been struggling to focus lately.

I'm flitting from one tab to another, constantly checking my phone, jumping on Twitter every 5 minutes (reading all the amazing essays). But getting any kind of focused work done has been painful and fleeting.

So, this afternoon I grabbed my headphones, headed for a sunny corner in a cafe, and switched on a rather magical playlist. Almost INSTANTLY I was transported into a state of calm, relaxed, flow.

What was this magical, instant flow playlist, you ask?

Music for the brain... Binaural Beats 🎶🧠

A Binaural What!?

Binaural beats are an auditory illusion caused by listening to two tones of slightly different frequency, one in each ear.

Yeah, read that a few times and let it sink in. It's safe to say, I don't exactly understand the mechanics of the brain and how these beats work technically.

But I know they 100% work for my brain.

Binaural beats are said to boost focus, promote relaxation and reduce stress, depending on the frequency they are produced at:

👉 Delta. Good for deep sleep and pain relief.

👉 Theta. Good for REM Sleep, deep relaxation and creative work.

👉 Alpha. Good for relaxed focused, stress reduction and fast learning.

👉 Beta. Good for Focussed attention, problem solving and thinking.

👉 Gamma. Good for high level cognition, peak awareness & memory recall.

If you're struggling to get into the flow. Or Twitter notifications have taken over your world, find a binaural playlist on Spotify or Youtube and give em a go.
