I asked this question at another community but think it will be OK to be here. So it's like this:
I've got a chronic phobia with keyboard sound. Unfortunately, my working place has a few constant clicking sources throughout the day. I'm thinking of listening to music as a coping strategy with this stress. Some articles recommend using music for mental and productivity boost while other opponents think differently. I don't really look for the productivity-related impact, regardless of whether it's positive or not, but instead try to find a remedy for the disturbing effect of the keyboards.
That problem has emerged since I entered college, extended and intensified to doctoral training when I had shared office and students were almost required to be present. Now I'm a postdoc but it still won't let me alone, at least for the next couple of years.
So I'd like to know if some of you also have the same experience and what you've done to get around it. If music is your solution, a suggestion on the genre and tracks would be appreciated. I'm in social sciences and data analysis disciplines if that may matter for the choice
