Why Should You Live Nearby Work?




Get happier- By Moving
Closer to Your Work Place


Quote from book:
"When you look at Americans' day-to-day activity ... the top two things we hate the most on a day-to-day basis is, No. 1: housework and No. 2: the daily commute in our cars. In fact, if you can cut an hour long commute each way out of your life, it's the [happiness] equivalent of making up an extra $40,000 a year if you're at the $50- to $60,000 level. Huge ... [So] it's an easy way for us to get happier. Move closer to your place of work."

The Secret to Happiness?

DON'T commute: Workers with long journeys to work 'WORRY MORE'

  • 40% of commuters who travel for more than 3 hours a day worry for much of the working day.

  • But just 28% of those with short commutes worry.

  • Morning commute is the most hated part of the day.

  • People with long commutes tend to be more tired and experience 'LESS Happiness'.

The survey, conducted for the Gallup-Heathway’s Well-Being Index - an assessment of the health and happiness of U.S. residents, also revealed that people with very long commutes tend to feel more tiredness and less enjoyment during their working day.

The researchers found that when people report their levels of enjoyment of each of the activities in their daily routine, the morning commute comes last, "Priceonomics" reported.

Commuting is also detrimental to people’s happiness as workers with long commutes tend to have less time for socializing with family and friends.

However, it is not only our happiness that can be compromised by a long commute.  Lengthy journeys to work can also play havoc with our health – commuters suffer from more recurring back and neck pain, sleep less well, take less exercise, and eat less home-cooked food than those who do not commute.
