Making the most of your travel time

March 02, 2018

If you’ve ever found yourself in your car thinking that you could be doing more with your time than being stuck in traffic, left only to switch radio stations, be assured you’re not alone. In fact, on average people spend 4.4 hours a week commuting to and from work; now that’s a lot of time in the car, bus or train.

 

So, besides making phone calls, what more can you do?

 

Thanks to the iPod, which was originally launched in 2001, there has been an ever increasing popularity of podcasts. If you jump onto the Apple App store or your favourite music streaming service you can find podcasts that cover everything from self-help, education, personal development, thought-leadership and entertainment.

 

So, where do you begin? Well it all depends on what interests you. To help you get started, here are a few podcasts we have selected which you might like to consider:
