How To Maximize Your Commute
A lot of people spend time complaining about how much time they lose each day commuting to and from work, but what many of these people fail to realize (or, at least, what many of these people refuse to realize!) is that their commute could actually steal a whole lot less of their time if they simply figured out a way to make the most of their commute - and while the definition of "making the most" of something will vary from person to person, here are a few ideas that many people find useful, and that you may find useful as well! One of the best ways to maximize your time if you take a bus and/or a subway to work is to read during your commute, as this will not only help you to keep your mind active during your commute, but will also help you to relax; of course, if you drive to work instead of taking public transportation, you will not exactly be able to read, but what you will be able to do is listen to audiobooks - and these will help to pass the time more quickly, while also keeping your mind engaged and alert. Talking on the phone to friends and family is another great way to maximize the time you spend commuting to and from work - and it is something you can do whether you are driving or taking public transportation; by doing this during your commute, you will be able to keep up with everyone in your life, and will be able to do so without using up your free time in the evening (just make sure that you are hands-free if you are talking on the phone while you are driving to and from work, so that you will be safe on the road). And one of the great things about a commute is that it gives you a lot of time to be alone inside your mind, even if you are around a lot of other people, and you can use this time to your advantage by coming up with thoughts and ideas that you can put into action in your present and your future - for your work, family, and personal life! No one wants to spend such a large chunk of their life commuting to and from work, of course - but by learning to maximize your commute, it at least becomes a whole lot better!
