I’m a big fan of Andrew Huberman’s content. I read this post today and I immediately skip my regular music playlist and start listening to 40Hz binaural beats for more than 4 hours.
I won’t say that it increased my focus dramatically but somehow it helped (it might be placebo though). It’s kind of weird sound, try it (headphones only) and you will understand why, it’s not a typical sound that you are used to listen, when you work.
After the first hour (it took me a while to get comfortable with it) this type of sound managed to eliminate every other sound existed in my environment and it did not distract me as well.
I am not 100% that I will stick to it, but I will try to have it as a first option, every time I have to do deep work.
Fun fact: It indeed helped me focus because a couple of times that someone came into my office, I got scared by the sound of opening the door.

Why is this important?
Lack of focus is one of the most popular problems for professionals worldwide.
I was reluctant to try these white sounds but after my initial test, I find them very helpful.
