How to Enjoy Your Commute

Commuting is something most of us experience everyday but sadly, no one seems to enjoy it. When we were kids, we would still feel the rush and excitement of riding an MRT or a two-story bus but nowadays, it is hardly something enjoyable anymore. Here’s the thing, you can’t really change the situations you have to go through, the only thing you can change is how you react to the situation. Instead of not being able to enjoy your commute at all, let’s look for ways for us to enjoy it. Why shouldn’t we?

Here are some ways to enjoy your commute:

1. Listen to music
Music is a great way for you to take a step back but enjoy your surroundings at the same time. Music can take a perfectly dull moment and transform it into something you could actually look forward to during the day. To make this better, refrain from listening to music on other times of the day to make this more special. That way, you’d actually look forward to commuting to listen to music. Another great thing to do is to download a playlist of your favorite songs just for your commute alone. This way, you’ll make your commute more memorable.

2. Listen to an audiobook
Depending on how long your commute is, listening to an audiobook is a great way to lose yourself in the midst of everyone around you. Listening to audiobooks might get your imagination running a little wilder than you would have expected. Allow your imagination to run wild! After all, you’re just commuting.

3. Watch a video on your phone
Although this may be hard sometimes, but watching a video or two on your phone is a great way to enjoy your commute. This gets tricky though if the transportation isn’t smooth and it might cause headaches. Make sure to watch videos only when you know that you’ll be having a smooth ride all throughout your commute.

4. Listen to audio talks
Who says learning has to stop? In fact, you can actually learn at any time of the day! All you have to do is listen to lectures. Now this is the amazing thing about technology, it allows you access to information far beyond your physical reach. Who knows, you might even learn something that could really help boost your career into another promotion or so.

Commuting doesn’t have to be something you don’t enjoy. You can collect your thoughts, reflect, listen, and learn even if you are on your way to work. On average, we spend about at least an hour a day for going from one place to another and imagine if that hour was well spent. That hour is sixty minutes! You can do a lot with sixty minutes.
