As part of an ongoing series, the CNN Underscored team showcases outstanding deals you can shop right now on the CNN Store. Each week, our staff chooses a product to feature that we think you’ll love.
Focus@Will offers curated music streaming tracks that the company says are scientifically designed to increase your productivity at work. It’s not entertainment – it’s music to help you focus and ignore distractions.
The CNN Store is offering subscriptions to Focus@Will at an affordable price. There’s a 1-year subscription valued at $24.95 or a lifetime subscription for just $69.95.
When you subscribe, Focus@Will will ask you a few questions to determine your personality type, and then recommend a channel for you (although you can also listen to any of the other 50-plus channels, which include alpha chill, ambient, classical piano, chill spa and many more). The company says it’s worked with scientists to test the effects of different types of music on brain and heart activity.
Like other streaming services, there is an app for the desktop, iOS and Android, and Focus@Will can sync with Sonos for easy playback on speakers.
The company says after you listen for 20 minutes or so, you’ll stop noticing the music, but your brain will be in a “flow state” that will exponentially increase your productivity. After a work session like that, you can go back to your regular playlist and rock out.
