Noise is a powerful aesthetic so, we put together a few tips on how to block out noise while studying in order to make the most out of your surroundings based on preference.
Music can greatly impact your state of mind when you are studying and the best mood for retaining the most amount of information is a relaxed one. When you are feeling overwhelmed by the workload, added stimuli of noise may not be ideal, but if you need an extra boost of creativity, music or background noise may help.
