Smart Commuting: Using Your Time & A Little Tech to Jumpstart Your Day

Smart Commuting - Using Your Time & A Little Tech to Jumpstart Your Day

If you’re faced with a long commute every day, it can be boring and tedious, especially when you’re caught up in traffic. However, the time you spend travelling to and from work could prove to be invaluable, allowing you to get on top of things instead of wasting time.

Here’s how:

Make Some Plans

It doesn’t matter how organized you are, there’s always something that needs planning. From meals out with friends to your day ahead at work, start jotting down your to-do lists while you’re on the commute. The more time you spend planning your day or week while you’re travelling, the more time you’ll have for other things at work or home.

Call People

One of the best ways to kill time while you’re travelling is to catch up on personal phone calls. Call people you’ve been meaning to get in touch with for some time or arrange your weekly catch ups with friends and family during your commute.

Alternatively, you might want to get some of your client calls out of the way, which will provide you with even more time to get straight to work as soon as you arrive. And a great way to make sure you don’t miss anything if you are chatting to clients is to record the conversations – there are a number of apps available that help you to do this, including this one on Google Play.

Learn a New Language

Finding the time to learn a new language is something many of us wish we could do, but there just aren’t enough hours in the day. However, those precious minutes you spend commuting to work could provide you with the perfect excuse to start learning a language of your choice. There are various apps you can download that create interactive language tutorials, and ones that won’t make you feel as though you’re back at school.

Catch Up on the News

Instead of whiling away the hours scrolling through your Facebook newsfeed, why not scroll through worthwhile news? It could be general day-to-day news, your favourite online magazine or the latest tech news. Tuning into these news channels won’t just stave off boredom but will also help you to learn new things.

Or, if you prefer hard copies, you could buy a paper or magazine before your commute, or simply dive into a book by your favourite author. Equally, if you’re driving to work, you might want to invest in the latest audio lectures or books, which will help you to learn while you’re on the go.

Grab Forty Winks

This is an obvious no-no if you’re driving to work, but if you’re not getting enough sleep, the commute to work could provide you with some valuable time to catch up. Always be careful that you and your things are safe if you’re doing this, that you won’t miss your stop, and you won’t disturb others with your snoring!   

So, rather than trying to kill time or worrying unnecessarily about things on your commute to work, why not try one of the above to help make sure every second of your journey to work counts.
