Every morning you wake up, get ready and go sit down for hours in a car stuck in Nairobi traffic. Every evening you get ready, go out and spend even more time on the road. However, have you ever sat down and counted all the hours you waste in traffic? If you’re tired of it, here’s what you can do to make your daily commute more productive:
You’ll probably be too busy during the day and too tired at night to read, so this is the perfect time. You can go with the paperback version or listen to an audio book. If you’re looking for a lighter read, be sure to check out the Afromaisha magazine and let the feeling of being stuck in Nairobi traffic melt away.
With the internet at your fingertips, it’s very easy to learn something new when stuck in Nairobi traffic. Just sign up for online classes, sit back and keep increasing your knowledge. Who knows, this could be your key to making more money with a side hustle!
Before your day gets too hectic, use the time stuck in traffic to look at and respond to your emails and messages. You could also make calls that you wouldn’t have time for during the day.
If you’re in public transport, just turn to your neighbor and say hi. It will help you both forget about Nairobi traffic and you might make a new friend in the process. Alternatively, you can call a friend and laugh about the fun times that you had.
There’s two reasons for this. One, the lighting will favor you at these times. In addition, you’ll hardly notice that you’re stuck in Nairobi traffic. You can also post on social media and let others know how bad it is so that they can avoid that route.
