  1. Here, some of thoughts too,

    1.Plan for unavoidable delays.
    Successful people email an assistant or colleague that they’re running late; if you do, too, it can make you feel less tense and anxious as the minutes tick by. If
    you’ll be really late, mentally re-prioritize what needs to get done immediately so you can get to it as soon as you reach the office.

    2.Work out the plan in details for the big picture
    – What’s the next major move coming up in your life?

    3.Take up our time in getting from X to Y
    – Leaving early is empowering

    4.use the time as exercise
    In one British study, employees reported being more productive on days they exercised compared to days they didn’t. If you can only swing it once a week, that’s better than never. For rail or bus riders, get off a few stops early for a bonus 15-minute stroll.
