No matter how scenic your route to work is, travelling to work every day can become tiresome. In fact, people in East Anglia spend on average 24 days of the year commuting alone. What can you do to make your journeys to and from work more enjoyable? Try some of the ideas below and let us know how you get on!
Rise and shine
I know, it sounds counter-productive, but getting up earlier can give you that extra boost of energy in the morning. Waking up earlier will give you more time to prepare for the day ahead, leaving you less stressed, and making your early morning commute much more leisurely!
Along with waking up earlier, try and fit in a quick work out or a short walk. Exercise and fresh air can do wonders to your energy levels in the morning, making you feel much less groggy and more invigorated when you leave your house for work.
Scientists say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and they definitely aren’t wrong! A slice of toast and a coffee won’t cut it; refuel your body by treating yourself to a protein or fibre rich meal, and you will feel full of beans by the time you begin your commute. An added bonus of eating a great breakfast, you won’t feel that inevitable mid-morning slump!
As mentioned previously, a rushed morning commute can be very stressful! If you live in an area where traffic is a regular occurrence, trying some breathing exercises can help you calm your nerves, so you don’t arrive at the office flustered before the day has even begun.
Listen to your favourite songs
If you frequently find yourself bored and zoning on your morning commute, a good way to prepare yourself for the day is by creating an energetic playlist of all your favourite songs.
Not only can music keep you focussed whilst driving, it can also reduce stress. Studies have found that music can positively impact your mood when driving, consequently leading to safer driving. However, this only counts for relaxing songs, not intense, loud tracks.
Find a new job closer to home
If your long and tiresome commute to work is becoming too much, why not try looking for a new job closer to home? The average person spends over 2 hours commuting a day! Think of what you could do with those extra 10 hours a week...
