No matter what you do for work or what your morning routine consists of, it’s likely that your daily commute to work is the worst part of your day. If you dread waking up early and spending time sitting in traffic while worrying about the workday ahead of you, you aren’t alone. Whether you take public transportation or drive yourself to the office on a motorcycle with aftermarket gear from Get Lowered Cycles, here are a few simple ways to improve your morning commute so you can get your day off to a better start.
If you find yourself groggy in the morning after a poor night’s sleep or find your mind wandering as you worry about what the day ahead will have in store for you, taking the time to be more mindful during your morning commute can have positive effects on your mental and emotional health. Try playing a mindfulness exercise or meditation from an app like Clear or Headspace instead of listening to music on your commute, and watch your mental health improve during the day.
Stop feelings of isolation and put yourself in a better mood ahead of a long day at the office by taking the time to call a friend or family member during your commute. If you are busy and don’t have much time to check in on your loved ones, scheduling a call to take place while heading into work in the morning can be highly beneficial! Plus, socializing during your otherwise quiet commute can help you wake up, and ensure that feelings of grogginess are gone ahead of your arrival at work.
Make More Time
One of the most common reasons that your commute could leave you feeling stressed is because you find yourself running late to work and without enough time to relax and make your commute more enjoyable. Although it might be unpleasant, waking up earlier than usual and giving yourself more time in the morning to get ready, prepare for your commute, and spend time actually driving into the office. Slowing down and allowing yourself to take the time you need during your morning commute into work can help ease feelings of stress and anxiety and make this part of your morning easier, while getting your day off to a better start.
