Here's How To Make The Most Of Your Commute

And be happier because of it.

Commuting is part of your day, whether you like it or not.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a 10 minute walk or an hour-long drive, the time you spend getting to work can affect the rest of your day (and your health, too). But your commute doesn’t have to be a rude, stressful, or time-wasting experience. In fact, it can be calming, productive and even help you burn some extra calories.

Take a look at the suggestions in the infographic below. Here’s to making your commute the happiest part of your day.
