I don’t know about you, but I hate having dead, non-productive time…especially when traveling! Whether you’re on a long road trip, in the air, or doing your daily work commute, here are some ideas for how to spend your time more productively.
Just swapping out staring into space for a few minutes a day for any of the suggestions below can make a big difference to how much you get done and your general outlook.

“If This Then That” is a quick and easy way to automate common and/or time-consuming tasks without needing to know code.
