The Daily Commute – Play To Win

The Daily Commute – Play to Win

It doesn’t matter which part of the globe you happen to reside in; if your workplace for is based in a city, chances are you have a long commute to work.

The question is how much time and money do we actually spend over the course of our working lives on this dreaded daily ritual? Not sure? Ford has created a commute calculator to help you work out the exact amount of time and money you are likely to spend on commuting through the course of your life… Are you game?

Commuting Calculator –  Whats Your Number? Find Out Here

Commute: To travel some distance between one’s home and place of work on a regular basis.

The Ford Commute Calculator took me approximately 1 minute to complete (unlike my daily commute). My findings:

  • To date, I have spent 176 days of my life commuting to and from work, and still, have a further 249 days of commuting to go!
  • By the time I retire I would have spent $61,215 on my daily commute. So far I have spent $ 25 710, with a further $ 35 505 to spend on getting to and from work!

The good news is that Ford goes on to suggest some smart solutions for improving my commute. Check them out here.

5 Tips on Coping with Your Marathon Commute to Work

“Others have mega-commutes that keep them away from home for several days a month or week. These “super-commuters” — defined by the Census Bureau as those who live in one metropolitan area but work in another, sometimes distant metropolitan area — often leave home early in the week and return near its end.” -Today

One of the biggest regrets we experience in life as we head off to work early and arrive home late and over-tired is the time we miss out on spending with our family. Today interviewed a group of super-commuters and asked them what they are doing to combat the toll their daily commute takes on on their mental, emotional and physical health as well as their connection with loved ones.

Make Your Commute Work for You

Invest in yourself. Listen anytime, anywhere to audiobooks and podcasts.

I can remember a time when it took a 60-minute train ride each way to get to work. The odd thing was I actually looked forward to having that time to myself, to do with what I pleased. It’s really easy to fall into the trap of spending our entire commute scrolling through social media news feeds. Instead, we could be investing that time in ourselves in some way.

My Top Suggestions for a Win/Win Commute:
  • Audible.com – Audible sells digital audio-books, radio and TV programs, audio versions of magazines and newspapers. There is literally something of interest for anyone on there.
  • Connect with friends & family – This may sound odd but my most spontaneous and energized phone conversations happen while I’m on my way to and from work.
  • Insight Timer – Insight Timer is rated as the top free meditation app, it hosts 1,367 of the world’s best meditation teachers and musicians. Arrive at work feeling calm, centered and ready for any challenges the day may bring. (not an option if your commute involves driving or navigating traffic)
  • Exercise – For two years I walked 30 minutes each way to work and back. It never failed to be the best part of my day.  I listened to music or podcasts or talked with friends and family on the phone as I set a cracking pace through the city streets. Every day I arrived at work feeling fantastic! It never ceased to surprise me how the walk home always managed to recharge my batteries.

But There is a Better Way:

I’m no longer satisfied working for someone else in a job that is not fulfilling me. I no longer wish to continue trading my precious hours for dollars. And I will not compromise my right to live the life I truly want to live. About Me
