13 Tips to Make the Most of Your Commute

Stop Thinking of Your Commute as a Gridlocked Prison & Make It Work for You

7. Communicate

iPods, tablets and our smartphones are great. You can listen to music, the news and even play games during your commute (no games if you’re driving!). But as our technology has advanced, the amount of human interaction is on the decline for most of us. So how about using this time to – wait for it – actually talk to the people around us??

If you’re driving yourself then use the cell phone to finally return your mom’s call. She’ll be impressed you’re up so early and thrilled that you remembered her first thing in the morning. And reiterating that you STILL aren’t seeing anyone will make traffic gridlock seem less significant to your overall discomfort.
