Which electric skateboard should I buy for commuting?

Spending a little bit of time traveling between home and work can be healthy. It gives you time to gear up for the work day in the morning and transition to home life in the evening. If your commute is too long, though, you could face a number of negative consequences.
In happiness studies, commuting consistently ranks at or near the bottom of human activities. The biggest offender is commuting alone in a car. It makes us feel more isolated and powerless, and cuts into our time for community engagement, exercise and sleep. It also raises our blood pressure and our risk of obesity.
We humans are pretty adaptable. We can get used to a lot of negative circumstances. For some reason, though, we have a hard time getting used to a rough commute. Researchers think that’s because commuting (especially by car) is always a little different. It’s hard to predict traffic or transit delays or say exactly when our families can expect us home for dinner.
One of the reasons that commuting by car tends to lower our happiness levels is that we (usually) do it alone. It’s time when we’re not getting the kind of social connection we can get with our coworkers, friends or family.
It's time to find new commute tools to reduce commute time.
Commuting by electric skateboard makes a lot of sense, particularly in large congested cities. You’ll be surprised by the progress you can make past the streams of stationary four-wheeled vehicles and you don't need to find parking too.
