New Ebook Offers Help for the Commuter, the Corporation and the Community

“Conquer the Commute: Tools for the Road and Life” goes through a step by step formula showing you how to live a life worth living in spite of the commute.

Pocono Summit, PA, November 10, 2006 --( Employees and employers struggling with a commuting situation which gets worse and worse every year can find dozens of ideas for getting the effects of the commute under control in "Conquer the Commute: Tools for the Road and Life. "

Proactive corporations that want to keep valuable employees and vie for other qualified people who are unhappy in their situation at competitive companies are giving a second look at ways to make the long commute less taxing on their workers. In addition to ride shares and flex time, the need for ways to cope with the commute emotionally and physically is becoming recognized as the missing link in commuter services.

The ebook, with its companion workbook, was written by Dr. Marie Mastria, CLC, PCC, Commuter specialist, author of Commuter Chronicles, speaker, psychologist, consultant and coach. She introduces a new way to get control of the commute in a step-by-step fashion.

The commute began, she writes, because it was an opportunity to live where you want. Your community gives you everything you want - a large house, a peaceful setting free of city problems, room to play and grow - but these are only possibilities that won’t be realized unless you take control of your life and your commute. Conquer the Commute: Tools for the Road and Life goes through a step by step formula showing you how to live a life worth living in spite of the commute.

Commuters have special needs and it is the goal of the ebook to show you how to make possibilities realities by limiting the stress, stopping the drain of time, regaining your energy, stemming the tide of money and having time with family and friends.

For the commuter, the company, the family and the community, there are ways to make your life good and "Conquer the Commute: Tools for the Road and Life" shows you how to take back what the commute has stolen.

Dr. Mastria has taken the e-book a step further by also providing an accompanying workbook which allows commuters to take action steps as they read through. Mastria adds “I wanted to not only give them the advice, but also the tools to allow them to make changes happen in their lives.”
