Make Your Drive To Work As Productive As Possible

Driving to work can be a great opportunity to improve yourself and get the day off to the best possible start.

You can either arrive at work feeling sluggish and reluctant to go inside, or ready to handle whatever the day throws at you.

Below, we’ll take a look at a few things you can do to make your drive to work as productive as possible. 

Learn Something

How about learning something new as you take the drive to work?

Making this drive as productive as possible could mean you get so much more done in a year.

How much time do you spend driving to and from work each day?

If you spent this time listening to an audiobook or listening to a podcast, you would have some brand new insight pretty quickly.

You never know what this could help you with, so don’t hesitate to start now! 

Visualize How You Want The Day To Go

You shouldn’t close your eyes on the drive to work of course, but you can definitely start visualizing how you want the day to go.

For example, you might think about how that important phone call or meeting with your boss is going to go.

Visualize everything in great detail, even if you are heading out at lunch to buy some brand new tires to drive and make your ride to work as smoothly as possible.

Visualize every aspect of the day, and make sure you get excited and build momentum along with it.

You get to decide how your day is going to go, nobody else. 

Come Up With A Mental To-Do List 

If you haven’t written one down, come up with a mental to-do list to help you stay organized. What are your priorities for the day?

Have them sorted first, and you can then take a look at tasks that may not be as important that you still want to get done.

Never go into work not knowing your priorities for the day, or you may procrastinate with work that isn’t really important. 

Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrating can give you a boost when it comes to mental abilities and memory. You should feel less sluggish and ready to face the day.

Aim to have drank at least a pint of water by the time you arrive at work. Buying a reusable bottle will help with this.

Leaving your coffee until a little later could make you even more productive – so make sure you drive water first thing, not your trusty cup of joe! 

Practice Being Mindful 

Being in the car can make it difficult to be mindful. Then, if we have gotten annoyed in the car, we can carry that over to our entire day.

By making sure you’re mindful as you drive to work, you are preparing yourself for staying mindful no matter what happens while you’re there.

You will be able to take a deep breath and handle it, refusing to let your emotions take over!
