REDISCOVER YOUR COMMUTE
Beverley is one of the members of our customer service team. A walking font of all knowledge she knows everything there is to know about scooters and accessories.
The commute. An absolutely necessary evil that allows you to earn the money you need to do the things you want.
But what if it didn’t have to be that way.
A study by the Innovation & Work Foundation found that 38% of employees blame their high stress levels on long or difficult commutes.
The same study also found stressful or long commutes resulted in a higher absenteeism rate (thanks for that Sherlock).
We are not suggesting to completely change your commute as that is just not possible. But there are ways to make it easier.
Don’t stand at the same spot on the platform every day. It becomes incredibly monotonous seeing the same people, standing at the same spot every. single. day. Changing the place you stand will also change the people and experiences around you – maybe for the better.
Do you spend your entire commute looking down at your phone, newspaper or tablet. Apart from the effects on your eyes and posture you are also missing the world around you. Whether that’s the people or the environment. Look up – it’s amazing whats going on around you.
Using an adult scooter as part of your journey to work is a quick, efficient, environmentally friendly and fun way to get around. Swap if for your walk to and from the station or office and you will quickly realise the benefits.
