In the United States, the average commute time (round trip) is nearly 1 hour per day. If you work 5 days per week, that amounts to nearly 5 hours per week that are spent commuting.
Unfortunately, many of us waste this valuable time. Instead of using this time to focus on personal growth, knowledge seeking, or surrounding ourselves with positivity, many of us use this time to engage in toxic behaviors such as checking social media, face-timing their friend to gossip, or listening to the newest Twerk City song (I just completely made that name up).
In episode 74 of The Primal Example Podcast, Erica and Joe share some tips on how to make your commute and healthier, productive commute that is conducive to your personal growth.
Topics discussed include:
Have you heard of bitter melon?
This rough-skinned, bitter, unripe fruit is popular in tradition Asian recipes. In fact, bitter melon is commonly used in Okinawa, Japan, a culture whose people have some of the longest lifespans in human history.
Undoubtedly, bitter melon plays some role in their health.
In episode 3 of Primal Example Short Sodes, Erica and Joe discuss the blood-sugar-balancing, fat burning, and antioxidant properties of bitter melon.
