Three Easy Ways to Make the Most of Your Commute

Commute - Terry, MS

Does your drive to work feel more like a drag? These ideas will make the most of your commute while you’re behind the wheel.

 

Listen to classical literature audiobooks

You don’t need your eyes to read. You can absorb classic novels by listening to audiobooks, from “Pride and Prejudice” to “Paradise Lost.” Many pieces of literature are available via free downloadable apps on smartphone devices. Entertain yourself during your drive, and become “well-read” for that next dinner party you attend.

 

Practice your breathing

We don’t always think about our breathing. Can you remember when you intentionally took deep, lung-filling breaths? Try this in traffic, and it will decrease your stress level. This practice sets you up for success in the morning by establishing a relaxed, focused mindset to take on the work day challenges.

 

Learn a language

Many foreign language podcasts are available for download on your smartphone device. These mini-radio programs allow you to listen at your leisure. Choose a language that peaks your interest while you commute to work.

Tips for Saving Money for Your New Car

Saving Money - Terry, MS

Like buying a new house, a car purchase is one of the most expensive finances you can make in your lifetime. Before you buy, you can better prepare yourself for your down payment by following a few tips for saving money for your new car.

 

Remember to budget. One of the easiest ways to save money for a new car is to monitor your monthly expenses and cut down on your spending. Cutting out one slightly expensive cost that isn’t necessary for your day-to-day life can benefit you in the long run. For instance, if you buy your lunch at work, consider packing your lunch for the next few months. That will save you a decent amount of money.

 

Get a good savings account. Find a savings account that offers you a solid interest rate that will earn you money as it sits. Contact your local bank to find out which account might be best for your needs.

 

Be patient. The longer you wait, the more money you will have to give for your down payment. Unless it’s absolutely necessary to purchase a car now, take your time and save as much money as possible.
