Chances are you’re working from home right now, and just like the rest of us, you had to get used to a completely different working environment. We’re talking about your cat walking on your keyboard, struggling to fully focus on your tasks, or even resisting the urge to take a “quick nap” every two hours. But when it comes down to it, the most challenging part is actually: silence.

Silence can be your worst enemy if you’re used to going to the office every day and that’s because we tend to associate silence with a feeling of loneliness. Luckily, we have music to get us through the day and help us break the silence and monotony.

Because of that, we have put together a set of Spotify playlists that are worth checking out. It all depends on what kind of tunes (and mood) you’re looking for.

Focus with some Lo-fi tunes

Lo-fi music is a great choice if you’re looking for something relaxing but not too much that would make you want to take a nap. This genre is often composed of soft tunes with a constant rhythm that gives a sense of warmth and nostalgia so you can put aside the distractions and get those creative juices flowing. Sounds good? Check out these playlists.

Let’s say you don’t want to give up on your favorite songs but still feel like giving lo-fi a chance. What about turning those songs into lo-fi? This is what this playlist is all about.

If you want to dive deeper into this genre, we’re sure this playlist won’t disappoint you at all. It has more than 16 hours of exceptional lo-fi artists!

And finally, take on an international ride with these Japanese lo-fi tunes. The ideal mix between chill and energetic vibes to help you focus right away.

So it’s been a week of working from home and it’s getting closer to the weekend. It’s probably time to close your laptop, switch everything off, and simply… rest.
