Music can be a powerful way to manage your productivity throughout the day.
Wake up with music that uplifts and motivates. Two favorites of mine are Good Morning by Mandisa at the Inspirational Playlist on Youtube, and Fire by Gavin Degraw at the Motivational Playlist on Youtube.
Get to work and turn up Productivity with music that helps focus. I often listen to instrumental soundtracks or classical music while working.

Article on music for productivity at Entrepreneur Magazine. See also the How Music Affects Productivity Infographic at http://www.superfi.co.uk.
Take a break and relax with soothing Spa, nature sounds or New Age music. The Meditation Oasis app is a favorite of mine.

Turn up your heartbeat when you workout with music. Music that you like with BPM between 120-140 is key, according to at Choosing the Best Music for Exercise at nytimes.com. Exercise is so important to our mental and physical health! I often listen to the 50 minute workout channel at iheartradio, Trance Hits on Amazon Music, or songs from my workout playlist at Youtube.
Unwind with music to make the transition from work to home. I like Movie Soundtracks, Epic music, or Ambient Space Music.
