With so many of us working from home over the Pandemic, for a long time, commuting to the office constituted getting out of bed 5 mins before it was time to log on. Of course, as the restrictions lift, things are slowly going back to normal and this includes spending time getting to and from work each day, for many of us. The good news is that some smart strategies will help you make the best of this time. Keep reading to find out what they are.
Use your time wisely
First of all, for those that commute passively, by bus, train or tram, this time can be used for all sorts of fun and self-improvement. Listening to audiobooks, in particular, is a great way of having some me-time on the way to work, and there is such a massive range to choose from including literary classics like Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, and Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis, to hot new titles in Science Fiction and Fantasy like Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir. Oh, and if you are looking for something a bit more niche, then there are a whole host of podcasts from My Favorite Murder, The Dollop, and Oooligioes, not to mention My Dad Wrote a Porno, to get into.
Alternatively, may even want to use this time to catch up with your latest show, especially if it’s one your OH or housemates aren’t that keen on. After all, most streaming services have apps that allow you to watch content on your smartphone.
Last of all, when it comes to using your time wisely on your commute, is there anything better than learning a new language? Such an endeavor can even be fun with the new language learning apps that make the process game-like and interactive.
Of course, not everyone gets to be transported to work, and some of us have to walk long distances before our day even truly begins, and once the day’s work has finished, something that can add extra stress and strain to an already challenging day.
Although, there is a solution for this now too, and it’s investing in an E-Scooter. Indeed, E-Scooters that run on electricity can make your commute faster, and easier, not to mention more fun. You can even get some great E-Scooters deals right now. This means you can invest in a portable foldable E Scooter that can easily be stored at the office for a fraction of the usual cost.
Invest in a new bag
Finally, one of the most straightforward things you can do to upgrade your daily commute is to invest in a new bag. This is because by having a bag that is comfortable to wear, looks great, and is easy to use, we can make that time when we are in transit to the office run much more smoothly. Indeed, being able to keep our possessions organized and within easy reach is essential to ensure early mornings and evenings when we are exhausted from working late don’t become even harder.
