How to Jump Start Your Day During Your Commute

Whether you drive to work, take the subway, or hop on a bus, there are many different things you can do to get things moving in your day.

Commutes often take up quite a bit of time, especially during rush hour. You may as well take full advantage of the time you have in order to ensure that your day is optimized for success.
 
There are many ways to jump-start your day while commuting to work. Here are some activities you can do while you travel to get a great start to your day:
 
1.    Listen to self-improvement audios. If you’re traveling to work in your car, invest in some good self-improvement CDs, audio books, or MP3 downloads.
  •  As you travel, listen to these CDs and learn how to unlock your potential, organize your day, prioritize, increase your self-esteem, or other key personal growth strategies.
     
  • iPods or MP3 players are perfect for those who carpool or ride a bus or subway to work.
     
  • Indulge yourself by listening to your favorite podcasts with your iPod, either entertainment, self-improvement or business-oriented. 
     
2.    Plan your day. If you commute by way of a bus or subway, or even in a car pool, you can take advantage of the time by planning your day or detailing project plans.
  • Write down notes about your various projects, prioritize your daily tasks by creating a to-do list, or schedule meetings by using your laptop or phone.
     
  •  Be wary of talking on your cell phone while commuting. Loud conversations can annoy other travelers and your reception might be spotty at times. 
     
3.    Take care of emails. Email is a common time trap during the day. If you have access to the internet during your commute, it may be an ideal time to check your email for any important information or to reply to those emails that have long been awaiting your response.
  • Taking care of administrative or simple email tasks on the way to work can help ease the load when you get to the office.
     
  • Organizing your inbox with filters and folders can make checking email a quick task. Set limits about checking email once you reach the office to assure you’re working most efficiently. 
     
4.    Relax with hobbies or learn new things. Use your commuting time to do something fun for yourself, such as studying a new language or learning about a topic that draws your interest. You can keep your mind sharp and discover new things by taking the time you have during your commute to experience something different.
  • What have you always wanted to do but never find the time for? Sit down with your favorite crossword puzzle or magazine, or watch a favorite television show on your laptop or phone. Enjoy your time before work begins! 
     
5.    Eat breakfast. If you’re running out of the house to catch a train or bus, take a minute to grab a healthy breakfast to eat on your way to work. Many commuter stations have breakfast carts available so grab something to eat alongside your morning tea or coffee.
  • Not only will breakfast jumpstart your metabolism but you’ll also have increased energy by the time you reach the office.
These are just a few different ways to jump-start your day during your morning commute. While you may only have a limited amount of time in the morning, you can really make the best of it!

Ek is nou net oor die vyftig en was totdusver min of meer tevrede met my lewe. Ek het 'n wonderlike vrou en drie pragtige dogters. Verder het ek 'n goeie werk wat my darem so nou en dan stimuleer en die pot aan die kook hou. Daar kom egter ook dae wat ek teen Read more...

One thing that I realized is that this challenge will never stop for me. Up to now it has been very exhilarating and I know that a new day is dawning. My thought process has developed and improved tremendously, I’m able to actually listen to people and it is incredible how much negativity there are out there and the worst is that I can see people thrive for it, as Julius Ceasar said " Lend me your ears" it seems that the human race is queuing to do this and all bad news puts... Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-07-10 Why is it so hard to keep it simple? In my experience, everything worth knowing in life is simple. Why then do our teachers and the media make it so complicated? I think there are several reasons: desire to keep valuable knowledge to yourself an agenda to mislead others so that you can profit In my opinion, these stem from fear of scarcity (the myth that there is not enough to go around). But perhaps the greatest reason of them all is ignorance Which comes... Read more...
