7 Tips to Make Your Snarled Commute More Bearable

  1. Take the anxiety out of the waiting by calling your workplace, loved ones and friends to let them know where you are and that you may not be able to make any timely meetings.

  2. If weather permits, turn off your car. An idle, running car puts the strain on the gas tank and the environment so open the windows or zip up your jacket.

  3. Get traffic updates along with alternate detour information from the Department of Transportation station.

  4. Take it all in stride. Smile and accept the situation as one of those things in life that you have no control over.  Resolve to enjoy yourself in spite of the inconvenience.

  5. Chat with your passengers – and even drivers in other cars with rolled down windows near you. Throw a party with any food and drink you may have on board. Play a guessing game or the like.

  6. Use the spare time to become more educated: read up on things of interest!

  7. Though it may be enticing, do not take a nap. Conditions may change and you will need to start moving along at little notice.
