When you find a new place to live, U.Santini Moving and Storage Brooklyn will help you move there and settle. What they cannot do, however, is make your commuting to work easier. It’s up to you to find a place that’s near your work. Unfortunately, finding a place that’s within the walking distance from your work in such a huge city like NYC is almost impossible. New Yorkers are destined to commute. That, of course, raises the inevitable question of how to kill time while commuting to work in NYC. The answers may vary depending on whether you drive, use the subway, or some other type of public transportation. Let’s explore the options.
How to kill time while commuting to work in NYC by car
Driving is, without a doubt, the most comfortable way of commuting. That way, you’re either commuting alone or with your family members, which are both equally pleasant scenarios. If you usually commute alone in your car, there are many different ways to kill time. Needless to say, none of them must entail the use of hands or eyes. You need to keep your eyes on the road and your hands upon the wheel, as the legendary The Doors song has it. So, what’s left? Well, your ears, of course, and even more importantly – your brain. Pretty much the same tools commercial movers NYC use while handling their everyday business. Contrary to popular belief, moving doesn’t require only strong hands. You need to have your ears open, for your clients’ countless little requests and suggestions, and a rested brain.
What to do in your car in order to kill time while commuting to work in NYC
Since you cannot use your eyes, hands, and legs while driving, you must employ your ears. In other words, you must listen. Now, listening can be either relaxing or intellectually demanding, depending on what you’re listening to. If you want to turn off your brain and prepare for a busy and stressful day ahead, listening to some relaxing music will do the trick. On the other hand, if you want to spend that time productively, you can do some of the following things:
- Listen to some podcast. In this day and age, everybody has a favorite podcast (or three). Listening to them is not only the best way to kill time while commuting to work in NYC. It is often the only time we can dedicate to them, as life will always throw some other more important things at us.
- Listen to an audiobook. One of the downsides of modern everyday life is the lack of time for reading. None of us read as much as we would like to, or as much as we should. Listening to audiobooks is probably the best way to compensate for that.
- Make all your lingering bluetooth phone calls. We need to stay in touch with our parents, our kids, our friends, even our business partners on a daily basis. Making those calls while commuting to work is the best time to do it.
How to kill time while commuting by subway or public transportation
Commuting by subway or public transportation offers a much wider scope of activities one can engage in to kill time. The fact that your eyes and hands are free means that you can do a lot of things while commuting. You can keep up with your correspondences and write emails. You can also do the actual work, at least the part of it that you can concentrate on while surrounded by other people. Or read daily papers. Maybe you can even sleep. Especially if your commute takes more than an hour. That said, if you indeed need to travel for more than an hour, or even two, you should consider relocating closer to work. Get in touch with some of the long-distance moving companies New York and make an appointment as soon as possible.
Also, if you are running your own business, maybe you should consider downsizing it a bit and turning your home to an office. Needless to say, in most cases, something like that wouldn’t be possible due to a large number of employees. Human resources are the base every successful, ever-expanding business thrives on.
However, if you’re running a business on a smaller scale, maybe it could be a viable option. Still, even if you cannot turn your home into a home office, consider moving your business closer to it. Or consider moving your home closer to your business. Anyhow, do whatever you feel is right in order to make your commute to work shorter.
