If you were to gather a thousand people and ask them if they woke up excited about their morning commute, we can pretty much guarantee every single one of them would look at you with mild anger. That’s because no one really loves that time spent heading to and from work. It’s a time and place of mild misery.

That said, there are some people who really don’t mind it – and some who have found a way to make it fun – and that is because they have found a bunch of items that make this dreary part of living a whole lot more bearable.

So, without further ado, here are the things that can turn your commute into the best part of your day, every day:

  1. Let NPR Decide

To suggest a good podcast for your commute is nothing new. In fact, it will probably make you yawn. However, picking a good podcast is harder than many people accept and one of those chores that can actually make the commute even worse. That’s where the NPR Earbud.fm could change your life. It rounds up the best episodes based on recommendations from listeners, producers and media folk of all types.

  1. Constant Charge

There is nothing sad about using the time on your commute to read the news, get ahead on your emails, listen to your favourite Spotify playlists, text your best mate in the world about their date last night or just to scroll through Instagram. But, to do any of these things, you need battery, something smartphones don’t offer. That’s why you need a backup battery pack. Simple.

  1. Sack Off The Subway

If you have ever been on a subway, anywhere in the world, then you will have come to the conclusion that they are soul-sucking places to be. No one is happy. So avoid them. Our advice: get a Segway miniPro. Seriously. It’s impossible not have fun riding one of these portable joy-machines and, if you don’t believe us, just read this Segway miniPro review. Of course, that’s not your only option. You could cycle to work, walk, run, take a boat, build a chariot or anything because everything is more enjoyable than the subway.

  1. Never leave Your Notebook

When did notebooks disappear from the public eye? Oh, yeah, when the smartphone came into action, bringing with it a notes app. But it’s not the same. If you are using your phone then you tend to be distracted by it. But when you just carry around a notebook, you get to stare out of the window and ponder life and still have somewhere to jot down all of your ideas and thoughts and observations and emotions and worries and all of that stuff. Journaling is amazing. Period.

  1. Commute Buddy

You probably notice someone on the same platform as you every day. Someone who lives nearby and gets off at the same stop. Well, why not ask them to be your commute buddy and make a new friend, someone you can share the commute with and chat too. After all, strangers are just friends you haven’t made yet.
