Also, if you are taking the bus, use the time to really pay attention to your surroundings, soak up the sights and sounds of the buildings and streets you pass.
If you walk to work, walk the pretty route. In Regina in the summertime there are so many buildings and homes that beautify their yards with lovely flowers and colorful shrubs and ornaments. Pay attention and enjoy. Smile as you walk by.
Occasionally make a breakfast date with a friend a short walk from your workplace. Always give yourself plenty of time so you are not rushed. Also, early morning meetings, when your mind is alert and you feel positive about the day ahead, can be really productive.
