It’s tough to stay motivated when coming home from work, but if you do these simple things, then you’ll find that it will get easier with time.

You shouldn’t feel like you’ve wasted your day because every day is an opportunity to learn and grow. You’re in control of your success, so don’t let anything get in the way.

For most people, spending over eight hours a day at work is normal, and it doesn’t seem like such a big deal, but when you take a possible two-hour commute in with that and eight hours of sleep, that leaves you with only six hours every day to yourself and to work on your own projects.

What if there was a way you could claw back some time?

Staying Productive on Your Commute

Productivity is about getting things done. When you’re working as hard as you can, you can’t let distractions and excuses get in the way of your goals.

So, if you’re traveling on a train, bus, or another type of commute, then you have some time to yourself to work on your own things.

Whether that’s writing or reading books, there are ways to stay productive and keep your mind off the annoyances of commuting.

Or, if you’re a visual learner, then watch videos and tutorials on YouTube or other places to educate yourself while you’re commuting to work.

Staying Productive by Multitasking

Watching videos and reading books is all well and good, but what about traveling via your own means? Either by car or bike?

Listening to lectures and podcasts is a great way to keep your mind and ears active while you’re on your commute.

Whether you’re driving a car or riding a bike from, audio programs could be a great way to keep your mind from wandering.

Getting Things Done on Your Commute

The biggest challenge for someone who’s commuting will be keeping themselves motivated, not only for their commute but also for their work life.

If you’re going to be productive on your commute, you want to be sure that you’re putting the right things into it.

For example, if you’re biking or walking to work, then listening to an audiobook can help pass the time and make the commute seem easier.

Listening to spoken audio can teach you things that you could use on the job and can also help your commute pass by more quickly.

Staying Productive: Taking Advantage of Your Commute

Giving yourself time to stretch your mind while you’re on your commute can be a great way to stay productive.

If you’re taking the train or bus to work, then utilize that time on your commute.

So, you want to write a blog post? Start from the beginning of your commute and write, write, write!

Do you want to read a book? Do it during your commute on the bus or train!

Many people who commute to work every day will have stress in their lives, and that can throw off their productivity for work and for their personal projects as well. Therefore, taking back this time is empowering and should be a consideration for all commuters.
