Why is music without lyrics the best background for reading?

The above Spotify playlist only contains instrumental classical and electronic music and here’s why. The brain of a normal person is physiologically incapable of simultaneously reading text and listening to speech. People can only alternately switch between these tasks. Thus, music with lyrics will not help you in reading and understanding the educational material. On the contrary, it will be distracting.

What is the optimal volume for music while studying?

The key point here is that the music is the background, not the listening object. Make it quiet, almost on the threshold of perception. If you need to mask annoying noises, you can do it a little louder. It is important that the music does not distract you from reading.

Simple tips to make studying and reading more productive

  1. Remove distractions if possible. The presence of distractions can reduce learning productivity. These factors can be both external (noise outside the window, uncomfortable chair, pets …) or internal (headache, a strong desire to sleep, the need to make an important call or finish some other actions…). If there is such an irritant, it is recommended to eliminate it before proceeding to study. For example, change your chair, cover the window with thick curtains, sleep for half an hour …
  2. Remove irritants that arise in the process of studying. Yes, oddly enough it is. Reading educational materials is not always a monotonous process. Some sentences or paragraphs require deliberation. Sometimes, in connection with what you read, ideas arise and prevent you from reading further. Take a break, let your brain work as long as it needs to. Continue only after you have clearly understood everything.
  3. If possible, visualize the material you read. The human brain remembers images, but not text. While reading, try to imagine a vivid picture with details. A historical event, a physical or chemical experience, a combination of geometric shapes … The more detailed and vivid the picture is, the better the material will fix in memory.
