Travelling to and from work is rarely fun, unless you are on SpaceX BFR earth-to-earth flight. You’ll probably have to put up with the hustle and bustle of the busy streets at a minimum, the long lines at the station and even extra terrestrials who are trying to get to their all-important meetings on time. If you want to pass some time when you are on the rocket to work or even when on the ferry over to the launch pad, you can get some good ideas below.
Read Some Books on Philosophy
When you’re sat on the rocket, you may be thinking to yourself that the last thing you want to read is a magazine about celebrity breakups. For that reason, you should try and read something that revolves around culture or even philosophy. Read something that has a spiritual or meaningful quality about it. Maybe subscribe to Gaia.com.
If you have an hour or so to pass on the bus, why not meditate? This is the best way for you to develop your own intelligence and it is also the best way to try and increase your happiness as well. It can also help you to deal with the stress of daily work because it is the best time for you to unwind after a long day. The best meditation is done when you focus on your breathing. Just sit up, place your hands on your knees and keep your eyes looking downwards. Keep aware of your breathing, and don’t slow it down. Just know the rhythm that you have. Count to ten, inhale, exhale and repeat.
There are so many great podcasts out there that can really help you in your day to day life. They can get you excited about the day ahead and what it has in-store. You could always listen to music if you can’t find any podcasts you like. Both of these options are ideal if you are on a train so packed you can’t get out a book, and it gives you the chance to shut off all of the outside world before you get to the ferry. A current favourite is Strangers Podcast.
Download A Game
Everyone tends to have their mobile phones out on a train. Consider downloading a game. You could download brain training apps, memory games and even puzzle games as well. If that’s not your thing, consider games like FFXV mobile. These multiplayer games are really addictive and can pass a lot of time in what feels like five minutes.
Look Out the Window
You can even pass time by looking out of the window. You can get so much enjoyment out of doing this, from the shapes you see to the space life and even the scenery as well. If you get motion sickness from travelling then this is a great way for you to lessen the effect of that and it is also the best way for you to give yourself the clarity you need for the day ahead. Just take a couple of seconds to listen to your own thoughts.
