School nowadays is hard — that seems to be the general consensus of parents and kids alike.
Whether it’s virtual or in-person, it makes no difference.
What makes it so challenging?
There are many answers to that question, but today we’re going to talk about distractions.
One of the biggest hurdles kids face is avoiding all the distractions around them.
When your child is supposed to be paying attention to their assignments, it can be hard to tune everything out and get the work done.
It can be doubly difficult for a child with ADHD or any other diagnosis that makes it hard to focus.
So, what’s the solution?
There are many things you can do to help improve your child’s ability to pay attention.
One easy tactic you may not have considered is letting them listen to music while studying.
What are the benefits of listening to music while studying? And how can you implement this strategy in your home?
Let’s dig in and discuss.
Benefits of Music While Studying
Whether at home or at school, distractions abound.
Potential distractions at home and school include siblings, toys, video games, neighborhood kids, chores, people talking in class, friends passing notes, bells ringing, and the list goes on.
With the right music selection and a pair of noise-canceling headphones, it’s easy to tune out many of these distractions.
That’s the most obvious answer.
But, music is also known to improve motivation, mood, and memory.
Listening to music has many other benefits too.
According to Time Magazine, music can have a positive effect on both your physical and mental health.
“Studies have shown that music can buoy your mood and fend off depression. It can also improve blood flow in ways similar to statins, lower your levels of stress-related hormones like cortisol, and ease pain. Listening to music before an operation can even improve post-surgery outcomes.”
To read more about how music can benefit you in other ways (and see studies referenced), check out the Time Magazine article linked above.
What type of music should your child listen to while studying?
That’s a great question!
Let’s start with what NOT to listen to — nothing with lyrics, nothing too sleepy, and nothing loud and jarring.
What does that leave?
Quite a bit, in fact.
