Start a Campfire at Your Desk

It's tough to focus in an open office space. Try this fix to get stuff done.

I work in a large room with lots of distractions. Nothing says “buzz off, I’m working here” like putting on a pair of clunky noise-canceling headphones. As a soundtrack, I tune into Noisli. Imagine tinkling streams. Wind rustling through trees. Crackling campfires. I can mix these sounds all together. Or just focus on one in my ears. This lets me forget about where I am, zone out with a crackling fire, and target my to-do list.

    You and baby Olive have this in common. She loves a good rainfall soundtrack, especially at bedtime! Will be checking out noisli, thanks for the hot tip!
