Do you endure a commute or long drive times? Why not fuel up on something that will stimulate positive brain activity and keep you motivated to keep fuelling up. Here's some tips to super power your Automotive Productivity . Learning while you drive is a fantastic way to make the most of your commuting time.


  1. Audiobooks: Listen to audiobooks on topics that interest you. Services like Audible or Google Play Books, offer a vast selection of titles in various genres, including self-help, business, history, and fiction that can enrich your knowledge and imagination.

  2. Podcasts: There's a podcast for almost every subject imaginable—from science, history, and technology to language learning, philosophy, and personal development. Podcast apps like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Google Podcasts make it easy to find series that match your interests.

  3. Language Learning: Utilize drive time to learn a new language or improve your proficiency in one. Apps like Duolingo, Rosetta Stone, and Pimsleur offer audio courses and lessons that are perfect for on-the-go learning.

  4. Educational Audio Courses: Platforms such as The Great Courses and Audible offer in-depth audio courses taught by experts and university professors on a wide range of subjects, from classical literature to quantum mechanics.

  5. TED Talks: The TED app allows you to listen to TED talks on various topics. These talks are inspiring, informative, and often provide insights that can change your perspective on many subjects.

  6. News and Current Events: Stay informed about what's happening in the world by listening to news podcasts or audio news apps like NPR One, BBC Sounds, or the Economist Radio. These can keep you updated on current events, politics, and cultural trends.

  7. Soothing Sound: If you're looking to calm your mind and improve your focus during your commute, consider listening to relaxing music or nature sounds.  Apps like Insight Timer and Calm offer sessions that you can listen to while driving.

  8. Brain Teasers and Mental Exercises: Engage your brain with podcasts or audio resources that challenge your thinking, such as logic puzzles, riddles, or philosophical questions. This can be a stimulating way to keep your mind sharp.

  9. Audio Summaries: If you're short on time but want to learn about new books and ideas, listen to audio summaries from apps like Blinkist or getAbstract, which condense non-fiction books into bite-sized audio summaries.

  10. Self-Reflection and Planning: Use voice recording apps to record your own thoughts, ideas, or plans. Speaking your thoughts out loud can help with clarity, problem-solving, and personal growth.

Remember, safety comes first. Ensure that whatever learning method you choose, it doesn't distract you from driving safely. Using hands-free options and setting up your listening choice before you start driving can help you stay focused on the road.
