Many professionals perceive their commutes to and from their workplaces to be wastes of time. Studies have also shown that commuting can have negative effects on physical and mental well-being. The good news is that there are many ways improve this valuable time. Following are some Fresh Success Marketing Group practices for productive and helpful commuting:
• Use Public Transportation: Research indicates that relying on public transportation may be less stressful than driving, perhaps because it frees people from the responsibility of navigating busy roadways. It also allows individuals to focus on other tasks, such as reading emails or creating to-do lists. Some people even use their rides to and from work to catch up on their sleep.
• Wear Comfy Shoes and Relax: No matter which means of transportation we use, mindful breathing is always a useful way to spend our commute time. It helps us prepare for the hours ahead and to unwind after we leave the office. Those of us who do drive have taken to wearing comfortable footwear while on the road. Whether slippers, flip flops, or sneakers, it’s a worthwhile luxury. We simply change our shoes once we arrive at the Fresh Success Marketing Group headquarters.
We don’t let commuting get the best of us, and hopefully you don’t either.
