This is #6 out of 25 Tips to Become More Productive and Happy at Work.
Make the Most of Your Commute. How do you spend your commute? Make it positive time. Use it for reading, writing, creative thinking, creative projects, listen to audio books, or, heck, write your own book! If you enjoy your commute, that happiness will spill over into how you feel at work.
This is an idea that I can get REALLY excited about! Because you know what I love doing during my commute? Listening to podcasts! There are podcasts for every subject and genre in which you could possibly be interested. Audio books are pretty awesome, too. They’re especially nice for longer commutes.
If you have never tried these two forms of media, you really, really should consider doing so. You can listen to podcasts and audio books around the house, too, while you complete menial chores, and maybe you could even listen to them at work.
You’ll learn a lot and be entertained. : )
PS – My favorite source of audiobooks is Audible.com. And no, they’re not paying me to say this – I genuinely use and enjoy their books and service. I wish they would pay me, though. That would be nice.
