Why I commute?

Embracing the commute: Why I spend 2 x 50 minutes a day commuting by train:

Just a random Tuesday! 08.08.2023

Life is a journey filled with transitions and changes. As we navigate through various chapters, we often find ourselves in-between spaces, moments where we’re neither here nor there. For me, this in-between space is my daily commute. Despite spending 2 x 50 minutes each day travelling from Biel-Bienne to Bern and back, I’ve come to realize that this time is far from wasted. I choose to embrace my commute and how it has become a dedicated part of my daily routine.

  1. Time for reflection and planning
    The commute provides me with a dedicated space for reflection and planning. These moments of solitude away from the demands of work and social life allow me to evaluate my goals and accomplishments. I often find myself jotting down ideas, setting new objectives, and organizing my thoughts. This daily routine fuels my dedication and keeps me focused.
  2. A mental bridge two cities
    The journey between Biel-Bienne and Bern serves as a mental bridge between my home and workplace. It provides a boundary.
  3. Social media, time to reconnect during my commute

Life is full of transitions, and it’s during these in-between spaces that we have the opportunity to grow and transform. My daily commute from Biel-Bienne to Bern and back may seem like a considerable investment of time, but it has become an essential part of my path. Just like a phoenix rises from the ashes, I’ve come to learn that even in-between spaces have a purpose and can lead ahead on a good path. So, whatever your current in-between space may be, embrace it, for it is only temporary. Embrace the change, and remember that life goes on, with new chapters waiting to be written.
