As working remotely becomes more common, many say they actually miss their work commute. Some people miss it so much they're now implementing a "fake commute" to help draw the line between work and home life.

According to mental health experts this could be a good thing. Clinical psychologists say that time whether real or fake, it can be beneficial because it gives us time to transition our mindsets from business to personal, "Routines and habits help to conserve brain power because we worry less when we perform these routines, even if it's commuting," said psychotherapist John Tsilimparis.

So what does that fake commute look like? It could be as simple as a walk around the block in good weather or a quick scenic drive to signal the end of the day. Happy Commuting!
