Music is good. Good music is even better

Everyone has a mp3 player these days. You are hardpressed to make it through your day and not see the telltale signs of headphones in the ear. Of course, iPod owners have the conspicuous earbuds with the white cord peeking from their ears. Others go for the heavy duty Boss headphones. But music is with us all the time.

An article on CNN today recommends listening to music at work and offers some dos and don’ts for listening to music the right way.

Listen responsibly

If you like to listen to music at work, here are some tips to keep in mind:

• Use headphones if you share an office. If you have enough personal space to use external speakers, make sure the sound doesn’t carry into other people’s workspaces.

• Keep the volume low enough to hear if your phone rings or someone calls your name.

• If you use speakers, remember to pause the music when talking on the phone.

• Don’t sing aloud. In all likelihood, you’re a bigger fan of your voice than your co-workers are.

• Keep the dance moves to a minimum.
