1. Is Driving Driving Drivers Crazy?

An American study by psychologist David Lewis found that
some commuters can experience the same levels of stress as
a police officer facing a riotous mob or a fighter pilot
going into battle! According to a Statistics Canada study,
the most miserable commuters were those who, not surprisingly,
had the longest commute and those folks that used a combo of
driving and mass transit, whereas the happiest commuters were
those who rode their bikes to work. One more tidbit to ponder
on your drive/walk/ride/swim home today: in a Globe and Mail
newspaper poll, 27% of commuters thought most about work issues
during their commute, while another 27% (perhaps in the happier
category?) thought most about sex during their daily commute.

2. Mike’s Fun at Work Tip – Enjoy the Journey!

Get creative to lighten your mood during your commute. In Tel
Aviv, you can board a “yoga bus” where yoga instructors
guide passengers through breathing and stretching exercises.
In Moscow, commuters can register online and swap jobs with
someone who has a similar job, but who works closer to their
home. Employees in a company in L.A. don clown noses at the
end of each working day to help laugh off the day’s stressors.
In Toronto, you can sign up for a course that teaches you to
calm your road raged nerves through poetry. So try something
different if the road is taking a toll on your mood. Sing
like a fool, listen to comedy tapes or practice reframing
your road rage stressors so that the only bird you’ll flip
is a rubber chicken!

3. Quote of the Week

Here’s some advice for stressed out commuters: “He who would
travel happily must travel light.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery

4. It’s a Wacky, Wacky, World

Two very lazy seabirds (nicknamed Fred & Freda), are regular
commuters aboard a ferry in Britain. Although they are capable
of flying thousands of miles, the birds hop aboard the 8:15 a.m.
ferry to catch a ride to their feeding grounds, then return home
every day at 4:30 p.m. on the last ferry home. They have yet to
miss the last ferry back home.

Happy Hump Day! May the farce be with you both to and from work.
