Tips to Make your Work Commuting Easier

by | Jul 8, 2014 | Transportation


If you commute to work everyday here are a few tips to make it a little easier:

*Wear comfortable shoes. You may have to walk to your bus or train stop as well as through stations. Wearing comfy shoes will make traveling easier on your back as well, especially if you occasionally have to stand if seats are not available during peak travel times.

*Stay hydrated and carry water with you. If you have a long trip it is best to have something to drink just to be safe.

*Bring a book or magazine so you can enjoy the ride. Many people look forward to their work commuting time as they don’t have anything to worry about. They can sit back and enjoy some reading and not have to contend with the horrors of traffic or even bad weather as someone else is doing the driving.

*Listen to your favorite music to help you relax and enjoy some down time. Phones have tons of space for you to load up your music or for you to access online accounts.

*Get some work done on your laptop if you want to keep up with things at the office. Modern devices make staying in touch easier than ever. You can be very productive on your way to and from work taking advantage of technology.

*Bring a healthy snack if you don’t have time for breakfast. You can enjoy some fresh fruit on the way to work and bring something for the ride home as well.

*Find a buddy to share the ride. Whether it is a neighbor, a mom from the school or someone at the office, it is always fun to have someone to travel with to make the time pass more pleasantly.

*Dress appropriately. Make sure you always have an umbrella with you and pay attention to the weather report so you don’t get caught on an unusually cold or warm day in the wrong clothes.

*Look for a van pool if you don’t want to have to take the bus or train everyday. There are many options your local transit company can discuss.

These tips will make your daily work commuting more enjoyable.
