Using Lo-Fi Music To Code and Get Stuff Done

2020 has been a crazy year huh? If you have been following me on my Instagram, you would know that my coding journey hasn’t been all that great this year. As a matter of fact, it has kinda been at a standstill. Why? Well my brand new HP Envy x360 laptop that I bought in December 2019, crashed three times. Not one, not two, but three times. They finally sent me a replacement laptop that that had been refurbished with my original specs.

I haven’t done much coding, but when I did do a little something something I listened to a genre of music called Lo-Fi and some Chillout music to help me get to work. I would describe Lo-Fi music as a jazzy form of Hip Hop with a smooth bent to it, and Chillout is a form of House music that you can literally chill too. Actually you can chill to both, focus, rest, or get work done while listening to them.

I have been using the following YouTube Channels, online radio stations, and playlists to stay focused and busy:

Code Radio by FreeCodeCamp has a great selection of Lo-Fi music to keep you focused. The Chillout Classics playlist on Spotify helps me get stuff done with all of my fave 90s Chillout House tracks. The nourish. channel is the best because you can find all types of calm and soothing music on there. They have a great selection of Lo-Fi music too. If you are looking for more meditative tracks, check out this post on my other blog The Fat and Skinny on Fashion.
