If you’re a bit of a social media addict, then checking up on your social media channels on your way into work in the morning is a great way to get it out of your system before your time at work starts. A quick browse through Facebook, a few tweets on Twitter and maybe a snap or two on Instagram – maybe not the most productive way to spend your morning commute, but who wants to over tax their minds before getting into work?
If you’re not into reading whilst out and about, why not look into an audio book or two to help pass the time on your way into work, and immerse yourself in a great story? There are a number of great services that allow you to download or stream their audio books, and if you’re downloading then you can of course store with Offcloud and use that way! eBooks are also a great way to pass the time on your journey into work, and give many of us the opportunity to read when we might not otherwise get the chance.
There are loads of brilliant mobile games – some of which are even good enough to rival the games you’d play on your consoles at home – that you can play whilst on your way into work in the morning. Ketchapp make some surprisingly enjoyable, but simple, games that are well worth playing to kill some time while you’ve got nothing else to do.
One of the best ways you can spend your free time is by getting creative, and it’s something that plenty of us love to do. If you’ve got a story in your head that’s fighting to be let out, why not take advantage of your morning journey to do that? You can download great productivity software on your mobile phone or tablet, or make use of a service like Novlr on your laptop – give it a few weeks and you’ll have a decent amount of writing there for you to build upon.
