These "but commutes are good actually!" articles are really cheesing me off. They all boil down to people enjoying dedicated break time where they have no work or personal responsibilities. You don't need a commute for that, you need boundaries.
@maxeddy I really don't understand this line of thinking. The commute (especially the one into work) is usually the most stressful anxiety-inducing part of my work day. I have a choice of *standing* on a super crowded bus for 30 minutes each way or paying $100/wk for parking for the privilege of fighting rush hour traffic and save walking 2 blocks/day.
I know the office is an escape from home issues etc for many people but I've never heard people say they miss the commute...weird.
