I work best in a coffeeshop with rain

I read about Noisli in some article while I was procrastinating actually having to do some work. In fact, you know when I am most productive? It’s when I am avoiding having to do something that I do not want to do. So, to avoid doing that thing I do not want to do, I end up doing a lot of other things that I had been procrasinating on.

In fact, I am writing this post when I should be submitting an assignment for school (deadline is in 90 minutes).

So, yeah… Noisli. I scoffed at the idea of listening to white noise to improve my focus. Sure, I had read a lot about how the right background noise can improve focus for different tasks but, nah… not for me.

Until I tried it. And I tried it again. And again. And again. And almost a year later, when I want to focus, I tune into my favorite Noisli mix (coffeeshop and rain, with the coffeeshop volume turned up a smidge over the rain volume) and plug away. There’s something to this “white noise focus” thing.
