Get smart with your commute, your lunch break, and your downtime.
All the minutes you spend on your commute, eating, waiting in lines, walking or sitting – they all add up.
Why not think of clever ways to maximize your day to do something that benefits you?
For example, listen to podcasts on your commute. Take advantage of your one-hour lunch break to take a walk and listen to an audiobook. Use the time while you wait in line at the post office to brainstorm and note down what you want to do the rest of the week.
Instead of sitting down in front of the TV each night, pick something different to entertain yourself: learn some skills, start writing in a journal, get a friend to join you for a game of chess, or read a few chapters of a book somebody recommended to you (instead of browsing your Facebook or Instagram feed).
