#4 – Remember That Old Bicycle? Dust It Off And Save Some Gas!
Psychologists are always babbling about people not having enough time for themselves n this fast forward world we are living. Well, hurrying to work won’t get you more time, because in 90% of your working days you get caught in traffic. A few simple changes could help you save some gas (=money), help the environment and get you healthier. Here are a few tips that will change your life if you follow them:
- Buy a bike and use it to get to work. Even better, walk to work. It will save you gas, parking space and improve your cardio
- Move closer to work: Telecommuting will not only help you save time, but even if the rent is higher, on the long-term it could end up saving you some money, by not using your car anymore and getting stuck in traffic (especially in winter and summer, when you have to use the AC system)
- Propose to your municipality / council to invest in bike lanes and sidewalks to help reduce traffic
