I'll tell you what has made it really easy for me. Well, two things. First, not needing to be there right at 8:00 helps, so no stress if i get a late start or if traffic is abnormally bad. The second is Audible.
If you like to read, get Audible and listen to books in the car. Books cost about $9 each and if you get longer books, they will last you 2-3 weeks of driving. Time literally flies with a good book. I think i am up to about 40 books read this year. I can recommend some good ones with great readers.
I'll be happy to give you some Audible hints and advice if you decide to consider it.
My commute is 45 min each way, and do books on cd most of the time, unless im listening to sports talk on a particularly interesting day. I get my Books on cd from library or get cheap ones when i see them at many various locations. Listening to books on tape are awesome.
My favorite recently was Threat Vector (Jack Ryan, Jr.): Tom Clancy. Ive done all the Jack reacher/Lee Child books, David Baldaci is a mega star imo..everything he has written is awesome.
