Walking is one of the best ways to exercise your body!
Doctors recommend about 30 minutes of regular exercise each day. That doesn't necessarily mean running flat out on a treadmill. It can mean walking a reasonable distance — just enough to be breathing a little heavier and feeling warm.
Walking 30 minutes to and from work each day can help to:
Reduce the risk of heart attack
Lower blood pressure and cholesterol
Help to control weight
Carpooling can be a huge boon for your mental health. Traffic jams are never really fun. Why not let your co-worker do the driving now and again so you can arrive home at night refreshed and stress-free? Plus, carpooling can give you time to get to know your co-workers in a different light. Who knew Alice from accounting was a Deadhead? And then Stephen from sales told you of that new mystery podcast — sharing podcasts is another fun aspect of carpooling!
Say hello to riding past traffic jams and letting someone else do the driving while you relax and arrive at your destination stress-free. Taking public transportation means you can enjoy the added physical activity of walking to and from transit stops, people-watch to your heart's content, and make the most of your commuting time by catching up on podcasts, reading, or being productive.
Plus, you'll be making a positive impact on the environment by reducing traffic congestion and carbon emissions. Bring on the adventure and convenience of public transportation for a healthier and more enjoyable commute!
There are a few things you can do to find your best travel modes:
Consider your personal preferences, budget, and daily routine. You might find that a hybrid traveling style is most suitable — so from there it really depends on your proximity, time constraints, and physical capabilities.
Think about the distance and frequency of your trips, the availability and expense of parking, and the cost of transportation.
Talk to friends, family, or coworkers who use travel modes. They may have valuable insights they’re willing to share!
