Not many people particularly enjoy their commute to and from their workplaces. The trips are simply necessary. Unfortunately, they aren’t usually used in healthy or productive ways. As a result, commuting threatens both mental and physical well-being. We’ve decided to make our daily travels work for us instead of against us. Here are some Project 30 best practices for better commuting:
- Learn: Whether riding or driving ourselves, we take every opportunity to expand our minds. We listen to podcasts and audiobooks on a broad range of topics. Sometimes we focus on the latest industry trends, and others we indulge our inclinations toward nonfiction.
- Network: Networking is crucial to the success of Project 30. Although we often attend organized events to interact with others, we’ve discovered that commuting provides an ideal opportunity for follow up. We use the time to draft emails (using dictation apps if we’re driving), and make phone calls for some animated discussion (again, using hands-free options if needed).
- Exercise: We always try to fit rigorous workouts into our days, and figure that we might as well save some time and get our exercise in while we’re traveling. Those of us who live close enough to Project 30 often walk or bike to our office.
We make the most of our daily commutes, and it pays off. Go to our Project 30 Newswire to find out what else we do to stay productive and healthy.
