How do you commute from the bedroom to work?

Curious question. 

Commuting is a ritual. 

A habit is formed; there is a rhythm; we buy our coffee at a certain place, we sit in a preferred part of the train, often park in a familiar space, in other words, we embed and repeat a process that gets us safely, both physically and mentally from home to our work space.

It doesn’t matter how many hours I put into my day, I am just not: “catching up, getting on top of, making progress, winning”.

Are you pedaling that hamster wheel way too fast but end the day in the same spot?

And in that ‘spot’ are we feeling overwhelmed and tired?

Are you an ‘Anxiety Hero’, able to jump to the very worst conclusion in a single bound?

Do you dream of sitting on the kitchen floor with a huge tub of ice-cream and eating-it-all?

Or is the pursuit of magnificent grapefruit flavoured Gin, (or even just plain old Gin), your end of day therapy?
