An estimated 85% of employees drive to work each day. While it differs significantly based on location and times of work, the average commute is 25.4 minutes. That’s nearly an hour every day, and almost five hours a week spent traveling to and from work. If you work 47 weeks a year, five days a week, that’s nearly 200 hours. Which is almost eight days. Eight days every year, spent sat in your car traveling to work. Just to make that sound even more dramatic, if you work for 40 years, and nowadays most of us will work for longer, that’s almost a year of your life. Sat in your car doing very little.
