Spent fifteen minutes finding the right playlist to listen to while coding

5 minute later, I pause the music trying to focus

    If you have to pause the music to focus, you picked the wrong coding playlist.

    That's why I stopped listening to music long long ago. My mind can't be fixed to listen to anything while focusing on Coding

    5 hours later you find out you've been sitting in silence with headphones on ever since

    @electrineer I can't work without headphones on, even if it's silence. I don't know what it is but with headphones off I feel like I'm not properly sat down and focused since whenever I properly do something I'm listening to music

    Just do what I do and make a playlist of music (or anything really) that you don't normally listen to, but also don't dislike listening to. The idea is to have noise without drawing attention to said noise.

    In my case, I can't listen to voices, so I tend to listen to almost anything that is not a song.

    Instrumentals, electronic music, or even white sounds.

    Also, I found out that, if the music has a pace to it. (Starts slow, progresses to something sort of fast, and then relaxes again in a 45min~80min period) that's what works best for me.

    I think I'm unable to sysadmin/code without fast/hard music!

    When I really need to focus, on goes my most aggressive/hard playlist :)
