Walking between office and station

Riding the train between Osaka and Akashi

Benefit: 40 minutes of free time to unwind, including listening to music or watching The Walking Dead

Riding the bus between station and home

Benefit: One last choon before home

Two cartons of milk

Looking up to see your 2-year-old daughter waving at you stark-naked from the oversized second-storey living room window

Benefit: Knowing you’re truly home
