According to a recent study, listening to uplifting music while working can actually lead to increased creativity. According to the results, happy, positive-sounding music, can give a person a noticeable boost compared to say, sad music.

During the study the "test subjects" were divided into four groups and participants in each group were played a different kind of music. The groups' music had either positive or negative valence, with either high or low in arousal. Additionally there was also a 'control group' who didn't listen to any music at all.

After the participants had listened to the music, they had to take a test to check how creative they are. Whether they are capable of coming up with novel ideas and come up with more than one solution to one problem.

The results? The group that listened to happy music, such as the Spring movement of Vivaldiļæ½s The Four Seasons, scored higher in divergent thinking (coming up with multiple solutions), however, not on convergent thinking (coming up with a single correct answer).
