Benefits of Living Closer to Work in Brooklyn

Let's face it, it's not always convenient to own a car or even take public transportation every day in New York. Taxis, ride shares, and bus fares can add up with daily use, so finding other ways to get to work can be very beneficial. One thing that many residents of New York enjoy is walking to work each day. Living close to where you work has quite a few benefits, especially in such a huge city. The ability to walk to work is something that not many people have, but it can be great for your physical and mental wellness as well as your schedule. When you live at a 363 Bond Street apartment you reap the following benefits walking to work in Brooklyn.

Fewer health problems.

Doctors suggest that sitting for too long each day can cause some pretty serious health concerns. These include high blood pressure, high blood sugar, higher rates of obesity, and even cardiovascular disease. Making sure you get some exercise each day, especially if you work at a desk job, can do wonders for your health. Being outdoors and active can also be beneficial to your mental health as well, as the more exercise you get, the better blood flow and oxygen get to your brain! Traveling to work on foot each day is an easy switch when you live close to your workplace and can improve your overall wellbeing.

Saving money.

Have you ever calculated just how much you spend on transportation each year in New York? The cost of public transportation in NYC is 75% higher than the national average, even in cities like Chicago and Los Angeles. If you opt to walk to work most days and save your money for days when it’s far too hot, cold, or rainy to walk, you could see a significant drop in your spending. That means more money for important things like groceries, bills, and of course, all of your streaming services!

Time to yourself.

In such a bustling city, it can be hard to find a moment to just listen to yourself think. Whether you follow a busy schedule or just have a hard time separating yourself from the goings-on of the city, walking to work can give you some peace of mind. You can choose to pop in some earbuds and listen to your favorite artist or podcast, or just observe others going about their daily lives as well. After several days, this can become meditative for many people; a great way to clear your mind before and after work.
