According to researchers at Wayne State and Rutgers University, commuting creates a slight space that allows brain to switch and recharge.

During COVID-19 pandemic, remote working deprived people of commuting, which researchers suggest might be one of the reason of increase in burnout, anxiety and depression.

Further, researchers point, “We found that on days with longer-than-average commutes, people reported higher levels of psychological detachment from work and were more relaxed during the commute.

Longer commutes might give people more time to detach and recover. Further, On days when commutes were more stressful than usual, they reported less psychological detachment from work and less relaxation during the commute.”
