According to a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, long commutes were directly associated with decreased physical activity and elevated blood pressure. The study also shows that commuting more than 15 miles and commuting in congested traffic increases stress levels which also increased risk of fatigue, depression, anxiety and social isolation.
