How to make the most out of your commute

Visualise & achieve

If you’re driving yourself, we don’t recommend putting pen to paper behind the wheel. Public transport on the other hand is the perfect time to unload your to-do list and visualise what you want to achieve with your day. For those of you who drive into work, there’s smartphone application that converts your speech into text, so no excuses for not getting this done prior to 9am!

Declutter

There’s no better feeling than arriving to the office and seeing a clear inbox! Your commute is the perfect time to declutter, so you can hit the ground running when you enter the office.

What’s going on in the world?

Newspapers are free! There’s no excuse for not being up to date on the latest news. It also means you can chip in on those ‘kitchen debates’. For the drivers, why don’t you switch over from the chart music and listen to the news for the last 5 minutes of your journey?

Turn some pages

When was the last time you sat down and physically read a book? The benefits of reading are endless: stress reduction, mental stimulation and improved writing and analytical thinking skills. For those who don’t like to read, download an audiobook!

Learn a new language

Knowledge is power! With international borders ever decreasing the importance of a language is becoming more important than ever before. Learn some key phrases, these could really help you out in international meetings and it’s the perfect way to impress your friends!
