About this challenge

It's time to browse through your music library and find the best tunes for helping you stay focused. Especially now, when we're all either working from home or starting online classes. What are your go-to jams when you're working from home? What songs have helped you pull an all-nighter studying for a big exam?

Enter the Brain Power Playlist Challenge and share a list of songs that keep you concentrated, head in the game, and eyes on the prize. Tell us why you chose these songs and how they have helped you successfully meet all your deadlines. Please embed your playlist––we'd love to listen along!
