Top Spotify Playlists for Getting Work Done

Music is one of the most potent drugs on earth. The right music can energize us, help us unwind, put us to sleep, promote creativity, change our mood, and even give us an extra dose of motivation. From a work standpoint, research has found that music aids in increasing productivity and performance, making repetitive tasks easier and helping us escape our physical settings from time to time. Now it makes sense why so many of us are more effective in our work when we’re simultaneously listening to some quality tunes. That said, we went on a hunt for the best music for staying productive in your daily workload.   We narrowed our findings down to eight ready-made Spotify playlists that we know for sure will get your blood and productivity flowing—these are in no particular order. Thank us later.

How to Change Your Gmail signature (and Add Photos!)

When you conclude an email, it's helpful to include not only your name but also your title, company and contact information. Google allows users to easily add a personal Gmail signature to be automatically added to the end of each email. Some people even add an image or a company tagline, something to add a little of your personality to an otherwise dry email.
