Having a long commute is one thing, but doing it alone is a completely different beast. When you ride alone, you lose money. But more importantly, you lose time — and let’s be real, time is money. If you haven’t noticed, you’re getting your fair share of sitting in, whether you’re already sharing the ride into work on a carpool or riding the bus or train, or if you’re driving solo. All that sitting means more time to get things done. So whether you’re already ridesharing or are thinking about it, here are five fabulous things you can do with all that sitting time:
- Find knowledge. Catch up for your book club or branch out to a new, unexplored genre. Some of the books topping the New York Times Best Seller list you might want to check out include The Girl on the Train, The Wright Brothers, and Leaving Time.
- Make your menu. Use your Food Network, Pinterest, or AllRecipes app to plan your menu for the week. No more last-minute grocery runs for you!
- Stay connected. Haven’t talked to your college roommate in ages? Or do you need to plan who is taking who to the gymnastics meet and soccer game this weekend? Text or email whoever you need to get caught up since you can’t do that behind the wheel.
- Go on an adventure. Your commute will fly by with this Twitter throw-back to the interactive “Choose your own Adventure” books.
- Netflix. This site accounts for 35% of U.S. internet traffic, so why not hop on board during your commute? They have a slew of original shows as well as all of the oldies but goodies.
Look at all you can do instead of sitting behind the wheel. And we can help get you on the road to an improved and happier commute. Reach out at Info@GaCommuteOptions.com to see what commute mode is right for you.
