Death by Commute

The Huffington Post reports:

Brown University researchers found that spending an hour every day commuting (say, a half-hour commute there and back) means that the average person gets 30.6 percent less time for sleep, 16.1 percent less time for exercise, 5.8 percent less time to eat with the family and 4.1 percent less time to prepare food – all healthy behaviors.

What is interesting is there isn’t a corresponding decrease in time spent watching television. Longer commutes take time away from the important, healthy activities of life not to mention the actual negative effects of the commute itself.
