How To Make That Commute A Little More Bearable

Those of us who enjoy travel know that getting from point A to point B isn’t always a beautiful experience of magic and wonder – sometimes it’s born out of pure practicality. Heading to visit your relatives through a busy route, performing your daily commute, or even being trapped in an impromptu traffic jam, all of these things happen to us, and unfortunately, will continue to happen to us in the future.

Even those of us with a sunny disposition can become a little irritated at such an outcome and for wholly understandable reasons. This is especially true during a very hot or cold day, in which the stuffiness or artificial warmth of the car can make us feel sleepy and tired. So – are there preparations you can make to ensure this commute is a little more bearable? Might this priority help us consider fun gifts to purchase ourselves during the festive period?


We believe so. No matter if you’re starting a new job in 2024, you have a new car to play with, or you just want to feel a little less irritable on the road, here’s how to make your commute a touch more bearable:


Curate An Engaging Playlist Or Podcast Queue


If you were to see the most common podcasts that are boosted online, you may think every single episode is about how to be a better entrepreneur. Luckily, that isn’t the case. Listening to a fantasy novel you’ve been meaning to read but haven’t had time for either through your car stereo or headphones can be a great idea. A smooth jazz playlist, the latest rap album to hype you up, whatever works for you can help you breeze through a commute much more easily.


Use An Air Purifier


You don’t have to have an overly stuffy car to gain great benefits from using a car air purifier, in fact enjoying this can provide comfort and calm. When the environment feels more breathable, you’re also less likely to feel tired on long road trips, or uncomfortable due to the temperature outside being a little extreme. These units fit neatly into a car and can allow for the generous filtration and circulation of air, which can also be healthy for infants or the elderly.


Set Goals For Productivity Or Learning


It’s easy to think that unless you’re at home, in a home office, on a personal computer, you’re not learning out of office hours like you could be. But the truth is that the commute can be as good a place to learn or keep up on your planning as any other area of life. For example, listening to language lessons might help you more easily understand the context of what international clients are saying, or listening to affirmations and tips for public speaking can help soothe your nerves before you give a large presentation to investors that morning. Little goals that are incremental and preferably modular, such as those offered by learning apps, can be perfect for the two hours or so a day you spend commuting.


With this advice, you’ll be sure to make your commute just a touch more bearable, and yes, even enjoyable.
