Time Saving Tip: Avoid rush hour
Rush hour in my city starts in the morning around 8:30am. If I go to work an hour and a half earlier (7am) or an hour and a half later (10am), there is practically no traffic. My 30 minute drive usually becomes 45 minutes or more during traffic jam times.
Rush hour in the evening starts at about 5pm. If I leave two hours before (3pm) or two hours after (7pm), there is practically no traffic. During rush hour, my 30 minute drive becomes 45 minutes or more.
If I save 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening just by avoiding rush hour, I save 30 minutes a day, 5 times a week means 150 minutes, or 2.5 hours a week. Multiply that by 50 weeks a year means over 100 hours saved per year just by making this small adjustment.
Using this method, you can save 2.5 hours a week.
