Most people find their morning commute to be tedious and tiring–just another morning stuck in traffic and trying to beat the rush.
But you can make your commute into a daily pump-up for work by just doing one thing: playing some good music.
No more morning talk shows where the radio hosts are more often annoying than funny, and definitely not informative. Instead, make a playlist on your iPod, iPhone, Zune, or other schnazzy gadget (if you’re old-school, burn a CD or record a cassette. Wait, do people still do that? Yes. Me.) of new popular songs or old goodies and sing your way to work.
You can make a new playlist every 2 or 3 weeks, or even just compile a giant list of songs and set it on ‘shuffle’ so that you’re always pleasantly surprised at the excellent song choice. Good job DJ.
I guarantee you’ll arrive with a smile on your face and a bounce in your step.
Here are some of some of the tunes playing on my commute:
