Making the most of your work commute

Posted on April 27, 2022 at 10:00 pm

For many of us we have gotten used to the new normal of working from home every day, however, with many offices now re-opening the dreaded work commute is looming over us.

The average person in the UK spends up to 60 minutes commuting daily so how can we really make the most of this time. If you travel by train, you may decide to start doing bits of work once onboard, like prepping for the day ahead or checking through emails. However, this isn’t possible if you drive to work. Instead, you may want to use this time to relax and mentally prep for the day ahead. You may want to have a coffee to drink during your journey and play some of your favourite music or listen to an interesting podcast.

It’s not advisable to take phone calls during your commute, even if you have a hands-free setup, as it can be very distracting and mean that you aren’t giving your full focus to the road.    

Joining a car-pool group can be nice to as by sharing the commute to work you can add a bit more of a social interaction to your day.  Getting stressed out with your commute will only make you have a bad day so take a deep breath, try to relax and enjoy the time-out a daily commute gives you.
