Active commutes

Active commutes can make you happier and more productive, according to recent research.

“Simply adding ten minutes of walking time to your commute, the study concludes, is associated with a boost in well-being…The psychological benefits of an active commute appear so significant that driving should be a last resort. Even if you can drive to work in 10 minutes, the study suggests, an hour-long walk may be better for your well-being.”

I think this is true. I felt so much better and more energized when I walked for 30 minutes to get to work.
