6 Ways to Make Your Commute Productive

 

Americans spend more than 100 hours per year commuting to work, with an average one-way drive-time of around 25.5 minutes, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. When you do the math, that adds up to more than the allotted time workers receive for vacation (two weeks, 80 hours). All of this means employees are spending more time driving than ever – there were 139 million workers commuting in 2014, according to the same report.

How To Take Back Control of Your Inbox

 

Arguably the most overwhelming part of your business (and life)? Your inbox.

 

According to The McKinsey Global Institute, the average worker spends about 13 hours per week reading and responding to email—which, if you work a normal 45-hour week, makes up for 28% of your time.

 

That’s a huge chunk of time—but, when you crunch the numbers, the majority of that time is not time well spent. According to SaneBox’s internal data, less than half (42%) of emails in your inbox are relevant or important—which means that a whopping 58% are just taking up time and energy, making you feel more overwhelmed than ever (a recent study found that participants experienced increased heart rate and higher stress levels when given access to email).
