3 Ways to Make the Most of your Commute


There are many ways to both make your commute smoother and more enjoyable. There are a few things I like to do during my commute that go beyond having a nice travel mug full of coffee. 

1. Audiobooks

I am a big fan of audiobooks. They can really help make a commute more enjoyable and allow you to learn along the way. I currently use the Overdrive and download audiobooks for free from my local library. This is a great opportunity for anyone who doesn't want to spend the money on Audible or buying audiobooks. The only downside is Overdrive doesn't have a CarPlay app and you sometimes have to get on a wait list for books.

Some of my favorite reads are the 4 Hour Workweek and the Richest Man in Babylon.

2. Podcasts

Podcasts are a great way to learn about any topic or keep up with the news. You can download a podcast app and listen to a virtually unlimited number free of talks. You can even use them to help keep up with your busy career during your long commutes.

Some of my favorite podcasts are Mad Money and This Week in Virology

3. Music Streaming

I have become a big fan of Apple Music. If you are a student you can get a subscription for $5 (normally $10) a month after a 3-month free trial. The thing I like best about Apple Music is that they curate music you will enjoy into playlists and then update it every week. This is nice because it gives you something you can throw on without having to search. I also like Pandora for this same reason.

The New iPhone XS and XS Max

The new iPhone XS and XS Max are here and the XS Max is pretty incredible. While the differences may not seem earthshattering at first...
