Playing Video Games To Concentrate Works

January 31, 2018

Concentrating on important tasks can be a challenge at times, so to think that a video game may actually help you better focus sounds a bit crazy! But it's not the playing of video games that can help you concentrate, it's the music!  Familiar music melodies from Mario Bros to The Sims can zero you in on the task at hand.  The reason is simple, video game music repeats, or is looped, to play over and over again.  While you may have not noticed when playing the game, the music is there.  So by turning on that familiar looped video game music, your mind begins to concentrate on your mission.  So next time you're have a hard time keeping focused, try listening to one of those video game songs and see what happens!
