Would you like to enhance your concentration and work efficiency even more?
A dash of music with tea can help!
Listening to some types of music can scientifically boost mood, promote concentration, and increase focus.
Drinking some tea varieties does the same!
In this blog, we'll go through which tea varieties and music can hypercharge your flow and how it all works, so you can work better.
Have you ever heard of binaural beats?
Binaural beats, otherwise known as brainwave music, are an auditory phenomenon created when two different frequencies are presented separately to each ear (e.g. through headphones). The brain processes this difference and generates a perceived third tone, known as the binaural beat. It is often called brainwave music.
How do Binaural Beats in Music Help Boost Mood, Concentration, and Focus?
When exposed to binaural beats, the brain synchronizes its electrical activity to match the frequency difference between the two tones. This synchronization optimizes cognitive functioning, allowing individuals to stay more engaged and perform tasks more effectively. It also promotes the production of specific brainwaves associated with relaxation and well-being.
By entraining the brainwaves, binaural beats can induce a desired mental state, leading to improved mood, heightened concentration, and enhanced focus.
How Does Tea Help Boost Mood, Concentration, and Focus?
Tea contains numerous natural components that can boost mood, concentration, and focus.
The caffeine in tea stimulates the central nervous system, enhancing alertness and cognitive performance.
L-theanine, an amino acid present in tea, promotes relaxation and reduces stress, fostering a positive mood.
Additionally, tea contains antioxidants that support brain health and may contribute to improved concentration and focus.
What Teas are Best For Boosting Mood, Concentration, and Focus?
Green tea and white tea are the two tea varieties known for having the highest levels of L-theanine, which are best for boosting mood, concentration, and focus. They are also super-charged with antioxidants - even more so than black tea. And although these two varieties typically have less caffeine than black tea, there's enough to give you the boost you need to work better and more effectively.
Where Can I Find Brainwave Music?
Spotify and YouTube have a wealth of playlists that specialise in binaural beats. You have to try them out as there are good ones and bad ones! We've tested a few out, and honestly, some of them can be quite agitating! Here's one that we have been enjoying.
If you find binaural beats just don't do it for you, and you just want relaxing music to support your focus and concentration, here's a piece we love at Tielka.
