5 productive things to do when caught in Port Harcourt traffic

When Governor Wike announced the award of contracts for the construction of three new overhead bridges in Port Harcourt, it was met with excitement at the possibilities of development for the city.

However, these ongoing constructions have literally turned Port Harcourt into a 'construction site' with the attendant traffic conditions to follow. The situation has become a nightmare to some motorists on specific routes.

But you know what they say - No pain, No gain! So we are resigned to take our new traffic situation in good stride while looking forward to the benefits of the ongoing development.

Now although alternate routes exist, sometimes you can not just help but be caught up in the heat of the traffic. So what do you do when this is the case? You can utilize the time to do super productive things that will make it worth the ride. After all, time is indeed money.

So, here are our top five recommendations of productive things to do when caught up in Port Harcourt traffic

1. Listen to a podcast/audio book
Podcasting is on the rise and audio books have been a thing for a while now. Whether you are listening through an app or the in-car CD player, this is a super productive way to spend your time in Port Harcourt traffic. Listen to your favourite podcasts or books and discover new ones that add value to your life. It's a win-win.

2. Work on your to do list
Again, whether you are using a phone app or notebook, get cracking on sorting out your daily to-do list. By doing this, you are planning your day, and this increases efficiency.

3. Respond and organize your email
These days almost everyone has a smartphone and internet connection, so what you could do is try to achieve the 'zero unread' email status. Don't you just love to see an organized or decluttered email? You can take the time to read all important mails, archive, delete and unsubscribe from irrelevant newsletters. So next time, you never miss that important email ever again.

4. Learn a new language
Thankfully there is an app for almost everything including learning a foreign language. Translate those precious man-hours to study time to learning either German, French, Mandarin or whichever language catches your fancy. You never know when it might be needed.

5. Write
In this digital age, writing is still a superpower! The good thing is, as with any skill, it can be learned with consistent practice. So, when caught up in Port Harcourt traffic, use the time to hone this very important skill.
