Getting to work is a breeze for some and a hard slog for others. If you’re lucky enough to work from home, it may just be a matter of walking from one room to another. You may not even bother getting dressed or putting on makeup or shaving. Others who have to drive to work may be lucky to live close by or they have timed their departure and picked the best route to make it easier.
