Long commutes have long been proven to have a negative impact on your health: from high stress levels, poor sleep habits, unhealthy weight gain, even unhappiness in your relationships. Right. So how many of us have had to sacrifice an extensively dull amount of time sitting in the car on the way to and from work?
Whether it was for a temporary position, a dream job, an all-around-the-city position, or anything in between: we refuse to lose that much time simply to ‘boredom’. Life is short! Time is valuable!

While traffic can be a pain, we can choose to look at it like time to decompress on the way home or prepare for the day ahead – it’s all up to your mindset and how empowered you are. From audiobooks, learning a language, or calling for catch-ups, we’ve set up a guided cheat-sheet for you to keep in mind before you commute to work.
