    Here's How To Not Lose Your Mind While Sitting In EDSA Traffic

    Kapit lang, bes.

    1. Count all the AlDub billboards you pass by and treat yourself to Jollibee if you get to 20.

    Or McDo if you're a diehard fan. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    2. Take note of the time you spend sitting on traffic. That's the time you'll spend on you next trip to the spa.

    3. Invent a new curse word!

    With the amount of traffic everywhere, it's not all that hard!

    4. Or make up a story about why it's so paking traffic every paking time.

    Unleash your creativity.

    5. Get to know Epifanio delos Santos, the namesake of EDSA.

    We always blame him for our tardiness, but do we *reaaaaally* know him?

    6. Look out for gems on other people's cars.

    Papunta daw sa Innova-liches.

    7. Create an offline playlist beforehand so you can listen to it while in transit.

    With the speed of mobile internet data in the Philippines, wag ka nang umasa sa Spotify.

    8. Forget about doing your make up at home, you can do it while in traffic!

    And get that extra 20 minutes of sleep.

    9. And also work on your personality!

    It's the perfect time to practice your patience!

    10. Take a nap.

    It's not a feather mattress at a five-star hotel room, but here are some tips to get a better sleep while in transit.

    11. Do not, in under any circumstance, drink a large amount of liquid before going.

    12. Learn a new language!

    Busuu, Brainscape, Mindsnacks, and Babbel are just a few apps that offer easy language lessons. No time to waste, oui?

    13. And while you're at it, be productive and do what you can, work-wise.

    Send those e-mails, write that to-do list, edit that presentation.

    14. But when all else fails, you can always give up and go.
