Six tips to improve your commute every morning

Tip #1: Change your route every once in a while. When’s the last time you switched things up in terms of your route? Why not find an alternate and give yourself a chance of scenery? This alone can make your commute seem a little fresher in the mornings and also gives you the opportunity to find new stores, restaurants, parks, and more in your city that you may otherwise have never known about.

Tip #2: Keep your car clean and organized. If you hate your morning commute, you’re going to hate it even more in a dirty car. Keep your Clermont Toyota clean and detailed, as well as organized, to make your morning drive time more enjoyable. Keeping your car free of clutter, trash, and dirt can take a lot of stress off. If you don’t have the time or desire to detail your own car, Toyota of Clermont can help!

Tip #3: Bring your favorite coffee or snacks. Give yourself something to look forward to – save that cup of good coffee for the car or bring a snack you’ve been craving along for the ride. We don’t recommend eating a full meal behind the wheel; this just leads to distracted driving.

Tip #4: Don’t rush. Your morning commute will be that much more stressful if you’re racing to beat the clock and get to work on time. Leave early and give yourself a little cushion to get where you need to go. Worst case, you get to work early and have a few extra minutes to scroll in the parking lot before you head in.

Tip #5: Call home. Why not use the time to check in at home or with early bird friends? Your morning commute is a great time to make phone calls that you wouldn’t otherwise have time to make. Just make sure you’re using your Clermont Toyota’s hands-free technology to make the calls so you can keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road at all times.

Tip #6: Invest yourself in a new audiobook or podcast. Use your commute to check out that new audiobook you saw on Amazon or to listen to the podcast that’s trending. It’s a great way to pass the time AND engage with something interesting – you may just learn something, too.
