If you read this blog regularly you will know that I’ve recently started commuting as for five years I was lucky enough to be able to walk to work.
I thought I’d miss it and dread the commute but I’m actually liking it. At first I thought it was just due to the excitement of change but I’ve realised that it’s a lot less stressful then walking to work – something I never thought I’d say!
Sure there’s rude people and the delays are never exactly thrilling or welcome BUT mostly everyone minds their own business because it’s ‘me time’.
So often we don’t make enough time for ourselves and although commuting isn’t glamorous I’ve been able to do things I was never able to do when walking to work:
– I’ve read lots of books including Gone Girl (omg it’s SO good)
– I’ve read blogs on food, life, health and well-being
– I’ve written blogs
– I’ve planned my mood boards for Christmas (I love Christmas)
It’s not all glam of course as I’ve also spent full commutes starting/finishing work, heck I’ve even written a press release on the train but for me that’s just using my time productively so I’m OK with that!
Sure I’ve gained a few pounds by not walking an hour a day but I’ve gained so much more and really is it all that bad?!?
