And, finally, stop worrying about the time lost in the way and think of it as an opportunity to dedicate those hours to get engaged in stuff that you wanted to do, but did not have time. Grab a snack, read a book, meditate, listen to music, emotionally prepare for the upcoming leisure or work - just sit back and relax!
