Aspiring lawyers are preparing for their BAR exam. While others are prepared for the exam, others are cramming to remember everything they learned in the past four years of studies. Now, a family lawyer helping many divorcees settle their issues in separation and settlement (trennungsunterhalt), Atty. Jan Jensen shares his secret in passing the bar exam – lofi music while studying.
One of the most common questions asked by many is whether music is beneficial for thinking/working/learning.
Yes it is! – If it’s the right music (see my specific recommendations below).
But note: Anything that is too fast and has too much text is taboo because it either upsets us too much or the texts distract us.
Music Helps Improve Concentration
Concentration can be learned and only music is not the panacea. But music can help you concentrate a lot. Only it should be at the right pace, not too fast and not too slow. Here I have created a special mix for you to concentrate better while studying and working:
This is what research says about it:
1. Classical music improves concentration – both in the short and long term. This has now been proven in a number of studies. The so-called ” Mozart effect ” does not only apply to pieces by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, but can also be generalized to classical music (the key of major and a cheerful sounding tone reinforce the effect). We still do not know why that is so. It is clear that both music and spatio-temporal tasks activate the regions of the brain (cortex) located towards the core.
2. Others assume that music even increases IQ. A study in German schools found that out. The same source says that music can prevent brain cells from breaking down in the elderly.
3. Music is sometimes used as a sedative. This can be achieved through classical or meditative music, heavy metal or techno-music are ineffective or even harmful and can lead to stress or life-threatening arrhythmias.”
4. Our southern Alpine neighbors are also familiar with the phenomenon. A study in Austria showed that pop music can also increase memory performance. “It is generally recommended to play the music as a background for repetitive and creative work ( learning vocabulary, writing texts),” says study author Marcin Suder. A Swiss study with primary school classes came to the same conclusion.
5. And another special study from the last few years – carried out by new scientists at the “Mindlab” in Great Britain. Her musicians have teamed up with sound therapists to create a song that is relaxing and allegedly can also reduce anxiety, it is called “ Weightless ” “.One study showed that when they heard the song, the study participants relaxed 35 percent faster and feelings of fear were probably reduced by as much as 65 percent (measured brain activity, heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate).
