Over 300 million Americans use their vehicles to commute to work every week. Some areas of the US are more prone to traffic congestion than others. Regardless of whether you're sitting in traffic or cruising to work, you can make your daily commute fun. If you find driving to work or school to be a total drag, try some of these things out to make your drive a little more exciting:
Listen to Music
This one may be a no-brainer, but music is a great way to occupy your mind and make your drives overall more enjoyable. If you're into the slower or calmer music genres, it can even help you focus and relieve stress. Whereas quick and upbeat music can help you stay alert on the road. Just be careful not to let the volume in your car get too loud, or else it can be a distraction.
Play a Podcast
Podcasts are the latest trend, and they've essentially taken the place of radio shows. There are tons of free podcasts out there on every topic imaginable: politics, pop culture, cooking, lifestyle, and more. They're for those drivers who want to pass the time in traffic. Depending on the type of podcast you listen to, you may even learn an interesting thing or two on the way to your destination.
Listen to an Audiobook
Have you been putting off reading a book because you can't find the time to do so? That's where audiobooks come in. You can listen to a narrator read to you on your daily commute. It'll have you on the edge of your seat.
