Squashed on a stuffy train and compressed against someone’s sweaty armpit, sound familiar? Commuting on the London Underground isn’t the most appealing of things, especially when you are breathing in clouds of fellow commuters’ morning breath and having your feet trampled on almost every day. Have you ever considered taking the plunge and moving so you live closer to your office and avoide the dreaded commute altogether? A change like this, even though it is quite a major one, may have more benefits to your health and lifestyle than you may realise.
Did you know that on average, British workers spend an approximate 54 minutes commuting to work daily, that’s a pretty long time – in fact, that’s over 1000 hours a month! Imagine all of the other things you could have been doing during that time? To make matters even worse, it has been said that if your commute consists of 31 miles or more, years could be clipped from your life expectancy.
If you lived near your office you would save time, cost and most importantly your sanity! If you your dwelling was within 30 minutes or less from your home, your professional and personal life would be much more harmonious, not to mention that the prospect of walking or cycling to work is more than tempting, and it has countless health benefits.
The Makers is located in a prime position just behind City Road, so Tech City is within a five minute walk and the financial district is reachable within 25 minutes on foot, sounds good to me.
