Consider reading an inspirational book right after you wake up. It's easier to achieve and maintain a positive attitude if you have a library of positive thoughts in your head. You might also want to spend your commute time listening to podcasts or recordings of motivational books rather than the news. Set a target of at least 15 minutes a day. If you commit more time than this, you'll get more benefits. As William Butler Yeats once said, "Books are but waste paper, unless we spend in action the wisdom we get from thought – asleep. When we are weary of the living, we may repair to the dead, who have nothing of peevishness, pride, or design in their conversation."
