Generally, it is not good for the eyes to read while on the road. Well, I beg to differ – most of the time we spend at least 30 minutes walking to get to our classes.
Thirty minutes can make a big difference in your learning experience. Here’s how to be productive while commuting –
- Listen to audio books, podcasts and class recordings – It has been proven that listening can significantly improve your knowledge base. It helps you discover the things you might have missed before.
- Always keep flash cards with you all the time – Flash cards are easy to read and it doesn’t even take 30 minutes to cover everything.
- List your priorities for the day – You can list on a piece of paper your itineraries for the day so that it is easier for you to stay on track.
- Proofread your papers – You can scan your papers and check for grammatical, spelling and sentence construction errors.
- Scan class notes – Reading while you are on the move is a big no-no thus it is better to scan your notes or probably take a peek on highlighted texts.
- Return calls and text messages – If you missed some calls and messages, the great time to respond or take a call is during your commute.
Finally, learning how to relax through breathing techniques while you are commuting is a great way to become productive.
