Bonus Stuff 😇

Did you know that millennials are relying on music more for a better workday? Several formal studies have concluded noisy environments cause stress, whereas melodious sounds — music, results in the same pleasurable release of dopamine.

Music affects our moods in detectable, life-improving ways even if we’re not conscious of it. This is why we’re so fond of our tunes while we’re traveling — and, yes, why so many millennials turn to music to make the workday better!

That’s why we at CakeHR created this collaborative music playlist on Spotify and we’re asking you to join this growing community of melomans by adding your favs 🙂
