    Podcasts

    Make a habit of downloading a few podcasts every week. By listening to them while you are in transit, you can transform your commute into something to look forward to. Best part is, you can listen to them offline or underground in the subway. Learn more.

    Flipboard

    A dull commute is the perfect time to get up to speed on what’s happening around the globe. While known for business, Flipboard is a fantastic all-round news and information resource. With everything from politics to market reports, technology, food and art, it’s got something for everyone. Check it out.

    Meditate

    Regularly practicing meditation is a great way to combat stress set a positive tone for your day. All you need to do is focus your mind for as little or as long as you like. To do so, pay close attention to your breathing, make it steady and deep, close your eyes, and try to let your many thoughts slip into the background. If that sounds difficult, there are many tools out there to help. Find out more.

    Duolingo language learning

    Duolingo is a popular language learning app. It’s perfect for maximizing your productivity on your commute. Tackle French or Italian, or brush up on your Spanish. Learn more.

    Free audiobooks from the Public LIbrary

    Libraries are an incredible free resource worth every penny of public tax dollars. City libraries offer a variety of free services, including free audiobook downloads, as well as free online courses.

    Walk, ride, or otherwise be active

    Incorporating exercise into your commute can make for a substantially happier work life. In Montreal, for example, the most satisfied commuters are walkers. If you are close enough to your workplace to walk, ride or run, give it a go. If you’re not, try to take the stairs along the way.

    Bring a paperback book

    As a society we are reading more than ever, but that reading is almost entirely confined to the internet. An analog paperback book slows down the mind, increases attention span, stimulates visual areas of the brain, and helps pass the time wonderfully.

    Brain games

    Luminosity and other “brain gym” apps offer ways to exercise and strengthen your mind. While they require some concentration, they offer a great way to spend your commute.

    Work

    It’s often hard to work on a full size laptop while you commute, but phone apps like Notes, Evernote, Google Drive, and Google Docs can let you get work done while you commute.

    Timbercreek hopes these ideas help take the edge off your commute. For more information about Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.
