Work-from-home Playlist is the new way to get rid of daily monotony. Unsplash

Work-from-home is a big part of the new normal thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. As we get comfortable in our designated work-from-home style, usually pyjamas with a formal top, the feeling of lethargy and laziness can kick in. This can make us demotivated, especially with the lack of socialising. It’s important to lighten up the mood while working, believes Dharini Upadhyaya, CO Founder and CO CEO Furtados School of Music. The best way to do this is to create a Work-from-home playlist which will help you feel more motivated and alive, adding a fun element to your daily monotony. Although we know one’s taste in can be quite personal, but there are certain genres that are better suited to the mood you want to create.

Upadhyaya offers some tips on choosing music based on the vibe you want create, emanate and feel.


For stressful situations

We all know sometimes deadlines can put us in stressful situations. It’s important to calm yourself down and play music which has more soothing tones. Acoustic covers, instrumental melodies and slow music can be a great way to get your mind settled. The lower beats and tempo of such music can help you focus better at your task and complete the work.

Work mode

For the times when you want to get into the zone and churn out things faster and have more output, pick high tempo music. Genres like EDM, house, rock are great options for such situations. The higher beat count of such music can trick your body into working a little faster. It is also preferred for high-intensity workouts as well for the same reason.

White noise

While you’re working from home, sometimes you can feel a little lonely. To avoid the feeling, switching on some music can actually be quite therapeutic. You might not want to sing along and be distracted by it, but just have it on as white noise in the background. Jazz, instrumental covers can be great options for those times.

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month.

Swiss tennis ace Roger Federer, who is recovering from a right-knee surgery he underwent last month, said on Sunday that it was a difficult process to decide whether to undergo a third right-knee surgery after having two last year. But following Wimbledon, where he was "really unhappy" with his performance in reaching the quarterfinals, Federer opted to go through with it.

Federer, who made a late decision to attend this year's Laver Cup in Boston -- a tournament held between teams from Europe and the rest of the world -- said on the sidelines of the event that the recovery and rehabilitation are "going to take me a few more months and then we'll see how things are at some point next year". "The reception I've received, everybody is so upbeat that I'm here. They wish me all the best and they don't even see the crutches. They just want me to be good again and enjoy the weekend," Federer said in an interview for the event with former world No. 1 Jim Courier.

"I've seen some incredible tennis, some great matches and it's been wonderful. I'm really happy I made the trip," the winner of 20 majors was quoted as saying by atptour.com. On why he opted for a third surgery, the tennis ace said, "I was just nowhere near where I wanted to be to play at the top, top level. But I tried my best and at the end... too much is too much. Now I've just got to take it step by step," Federer said.
