10. If you take public transit, try taking some time to start journaling.

If you're not sure where to begin, try Start Where You Are: A Journal For Self-Exploration on Amazon, or if you like to make your musings a reality, check out the Action Method journal from The Ghostly Store.

16. Master the art of breakfast in a jar.

20. Get a subway map that scales the distance between stops by how much time it takes to get there.

Now you'll know exactly how long your commute takes. This one's for the Boston Commuter Rail, and there's also one for the DC Metro. Check out more maps at Stonebrown Design.

21. And for those subway rides, try a bag made of cloth or another lightweight material that won't rub you raw or cut into your shoulder.

Some colorful options include the backpack on the left from BAGGU, and the cross-body carryall from Vera Bradley on the right.
