Sometimes, when the cafe or library was too noisy to study it began to disrupt me, I would sometimes put in my ear plugs. I could not study with my favourite songs playing as I found myself starting to sing along, rather than paying attention to my notes.
One day, I discovered this thing called white noise. It is like background noise that blocks out outside noises, but at the same time is not a song and therefore is not catchy or disruptive. When I really need to concentrate and block out other sounds (for work and study) this is a great tool to use. You can find it on various sources on the internet, but we have made it easy for you to get a sample of it here below. (You can find longer versions on the internet for free).
Just put your earplugs in, listen to the music and see for five minutes if it helps you concentrate.
