Alhamdulillah, we’ve been sharing many tips and resources on how you can work better and be a truly productive Muslim. Now it’s your turn to help our readers!
Every month, we host a ProductiveMuslim’s reader discussion thread where you can share ideas and tips to help each other become more productive.
Thank you for the many interesting duas on our last discussion on Powerful Duas that Boost Productivity.
The theme for this month’s discussion is how to make the most of your commuting time.
We’ve all got somewhere to go to everyday: work, school, shopping, doctor’s appointments, functions, meetings, the gym, etc. We spend an average of at least one hour everyday just commuting back and forth to one or two of these places. For those of us who have to spend longer hours on the road, commuting becomes a daily burden: the traffic jams, ticket queues, packed compartments during rush hour and the mad rush to get the bus/train/plane (referring to frequent flyers here ;)) takes a toll on our mental and physical health every single day; and we don’t even realize it. Add to that the staggering number of hours of our life that get wasted just moving from one place to another: if we even spent just one hour commuting everyday, that’s 365 hours a year – which is 15 full days of our life every year just spent on the move!
So what can we do to fight the daily stress of commuting while we’re in it? How can we use this time productively to get other things done?
Share with us what you do that everybody else can too when they commute to:
- stay relaxed
- be spiritually productive
- get things done
- enjoy the ride!
and anything else to make the daily commute productive.
