So now we are all lucky enough to have mobile devices we can transform our commutes to work or school from boring journeys where we gaze solely out of the window into the pouring rain, to fun filled events. If you are looking for something to keep you from boredom on your way to work, check out my recommendations below.
Binge Watch Before Work
There is nothing like catching up on the next episode of your favorite British period TV drama, or other show of your choice, on the way to work. Something about it helps you to feel like it is your time, and not just time that is work related that they are not paying you for.
It’s easy to watch your favorite TV shows on your mobile device now. You just need to have the right app. For that, you need to work out which channel or subscription service is showing your program. Then download the app onto your mobile device.
If you have unlimited 4G you can stream the show as you go, buy if not it may be more sensible to download the show and play it back during your journey to save on data.
Entertain Yourself With Some Gaming Fun
Games are another popular way to while away long journeys and commutes. You can choose to download them onto your mobile phone or tablet if you prefer a bigger screen.
Things like The SIMs or Angry Birds are a popular choice for mobile devices. Or if you prefer something a bit more musical in nature, why not try something like an online piano keyboard or Garageband for your mobile?
Manage Your Social Media
Of course, you can always choose to use your commute time to get your social media up to date too. It can work well to do it like this because it means you have a similar amount of time every day. Therefore you can get to your replies and comments easily. You can also use this time to upload pictures and tag them properly, so it’s easy for people to find them.
Meditate Yourself Calm
An ingenious way of killing some time on your commute is to meditate. This will not only help you to feel calmer before and after work but has also been linked to helping improve mood and brain function.
There are a lot of apps that you can choose from to help you. Some help you to track your breathing. While others provide peaceful music along with audio guidance on what to visual during your meditation period.
Keep Up With The Latest News
If all that sounds a bit too calm for you, why not use this time to keep up to date on world events instead? You can take the time to visit your favorite news sites like Forbes and Huffington Post. Or, you can even get apps that curate your news for you. So you get more of what you are interested in, and less of what doesn’t concern you.
