To me, this is not conducive to a pleasurable working experience. I know many people are lovers of business travel, and I’ll of course do it to some extent – after all, I did love going to trade shows and such when I was with my former companies – but being away from home that often really doesn’t make for a great work-life balance, wouldn’t you think?

I was, at my last job, what the U.S. Census Bureau calls an “extreme commuter.” By definition, that includes the 3% of Americans that drive more than ninety minutes each way to get to work. My commute was 152 miles round-trip, a three-hour journey that usually ended up being upwards of four to four-and-a-half hours each day due to construction, summer traffic, or accidents. It was, in all honesty, brutal. Do I think it affected the way I worked? Absolutely. I would have to get up exceptionally early to even make it to work on time, and by the time I got home at night, I had little to no time to focus on everyday things that needed to be done, such as household chores, much less any of my hobbies or personal activities.

Except the job in question was in an area of New Jersey that would have required a train, then a bus, then a walk, which would have added an additional hour to my trip, so that was out of the question.

  • One must earn considerably more money to make up for the wear and tear on one’s car, not to mention the constantly escalating gas prices.
  • The human body is susceptible to aches, pains, and trauma from sitting in the same position for a long period of time, including high blood pressure … and of course contributes to weight gain.
  • Traveling for so long is tiring, and the commuting experience is rarely pleasurable for anyone, so employees arrive at work tired and/or irritable. Employee morale suffers, and when that is affected, so is productivity.
