There is something magical about leaving for work early
Little traffic around
You get to see the journey in a different light, observe the signals, realize how wide the road actually is
You don’t brake often
You don’t accelerate unnecessarily
You optimize for your fuel
The stress is invisible, there is no reason for it

This is incidentally the same impact waking up early has
On your mind

Don’t let the alarm clock start your day
You do it for yourself
