The tunnel- a popular route for commuters and airport travelers- has been closed since December, requiring traffic to be redirected off of the highway, adding greatly to travel time in the Boston area.

Use it for flexible scheduling when specific days aren’t important- as in, “Three workouts before Friday,” or “Update website 4 times this week.” Create reminders for select tasks, prioritize your tasks to focus on what’s due, and view your history to see how your habits are shaping up.
