New Study Finds Commuting May Be Bad For Your Health
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The average commuter in the Tri-state area spends three years of his or her life heading to and from work and now, a new study finds it can seriously affect your health.
No matter how you commute, the daily grind takes its toll and all that time spent commuting can lead to health issues down the road.
“Commutes tend to make people focus on things that have them feeling kind of helpless and out of control,” health psychologist Dr. Greg Peterson told CBS 2-s Alex Denis.
