Finals week may not start for another seven days, but that doesn’t mean the stress is nowhere to be found. For those of us who have long commutes to campus, scrolling through Instagram or jamming out to “Gas Pedal” for the 500th time each morning begins to feel like a mundane routine that makes inefficient use of valuable time. Here are some ways to max your productivity and make the most out of the time you spend getting to and from class, regardless of how you get there:
- Download an audio lecture to your phone to listen to while you walk to class. If your school doesn’t provide them, check out resources like iTunes U that allow you to download video and audio lectures on every topic for free from thousands of different colleges and universities around the world.
- Get in a jog: if you normally have a 15-minute walk from class back to your dorm, dress in comfy workout clothes to turn this commute into a dose of cardio exercise. It is not only a quick workout, but it’s also a great way to relieve finals-week stress and take a break from the books.
