An effective elevator ride doesn’t just mean quickly getting from point A to point B. Elevator time doesn’t have to be valueless time, good for only whistling and staring at the walls; it can be an opportunity to improve your day. Especially with the stress the last year has put on us, it’s nice to have a few seconds to ourselves to reflect on our inner peace and thoughts. Keep these tips in mind during your next ride—you’ll be surprised at how well they work.

Clean Out Your Phone

Do you really need the number of that guy you met in college? Or the 1,000 pictures you took of your dog last night? (Well, maybe keep those.)


We all have stressors in our everyday lives—jobs, the toll Covid has taken on our mental health, family well-being. During your ride, take a few deep breaths to clear your mind.


Shut your eyes, take a few seconds to return to that waterfall in Tahiti or the top of the Eiffel Tower. Feels good, doesn’t it?
Make notes. Got an idea for a poem? Catch a funny conversation on the way back from lunch? Write it down.


Got a big meeting or test coming up? Use your elevator ride to mentally go over the basics.


Yes, you can meet people on an elevator. If another rider is wearing a Phillies hat, why not talk about how you’re looking forward to games opening back up again in the near future?
