How to Reduce Stress in Your Commute


How to Reduce Stress in Your Commute

Commuting is unnecessary and a forced fact of life that many Americans must deal with on a daily basis. Is there a way to reduce the stress in your commute?

How can you reduce the stress of your commute? The simplest way is to move closer to your work. It also increases your happiness and you save a ton of money on gas.
But what about for those who don’t want to move? They’ll be forced to sit in the hellish traffic that drives them up the wall every day. Luckily there are a few ways in which you can reduce the stress of your commute.

Plan Ahead

If you leave 15 or 20 minutes early, you may be able to beat the rush of morning traffic. You can wake up earlier, or if you love and need your sleep, you can prepare the night before. Pack your lunch, set your outfit, and get everything else you need so you can shave time off your morning routine.
Another way you can plan ahead is by planning your route before you leave. Check updated traffic maps and see what streets you can take to save precious minutes.

Listen to Podcasts

Sitting in traffic is less hectic when you are listening to podcasts. Hearing other people speak and have a conversation is soothing and can reduce stress. Chances are your favorite comedians and public broadcasts have podcasts. (Podcasts like Dear Hank & John, StarTalk, Freakonomics, and The Bills Simmons Podcast are all ones we recommend!)
