As everyone else,we are using our cars even more than it is needed.We should try to consider some other ways of getting to work,for example to ride a bicycle but off course if you live not much faraway from your work.
By doing it you will:
Boost your overall well being. People who switched from car using to active bicycle using, have greater well being and concentration as in many studies and researches published. Who wouldn’t feel great after a free, outdoor spin exercise?
You’re more likely to have a slimmer body. Cycling to work is associated with a reduced risk of obesity and high blood pressure. That’s not so shocking, considering that bike riding can burn around 300-500 calories per h depending of the velocity of riding. Even if you practice 30 minutes of cardio a day, five days a week you’ll get: good health=avoiding heart attacks and diabetes type 2.
Start the day in a better mood. Bikers are saying that they have better moods compared to people using their cars and public transportation. They are in less traffic,even if they get into one(traffic) they easily manage their way out.
Better cycling infrastructure means less risk of injury. As cities become increasingly cycling friendly, your risk of injury goes down. But still ride carefully.
Feeling good about yourself.Having this as a new adopted habit you are investing in your health and your pocket.
