Do you need to stay focused on a project but it's just too darn quiet to think? Research indicates that white noise, the background noise that's typical of busy coffeehouses and cafes, help keep you focused and productive. And you don't even have to go to your favorite local hot spot to get a white noise background anymore. There's a free APP and a website called Coffitivity that streams nonstop sounds of beans grinding, espressos brewing, and the background chatter that comes with your favorite coffeehouse. The sound is so real you may forget there's no barista around to whip you up your favorite latte. But at least you'll get your project finished on time!
