I spend quite a lot of my week stuck in traffic..so I’ve decided to share with all you fellow traffic sitters some of the useful things we can do to pass the time and help reduce our blood pressure at the same time. (You’ll be pleased to know none of it involves shouting at traffic lights!)😂
1. Listen to audio books.
Recently I discovered free audio books on “You Tube” and listened to Ellen’s book ‘The funny thing is..’ . I’m a big fan of Ellen and she reads it herself and it’s very funny, easy to listen to and great company for longer journeys. (Please switch this on before you start the car).
The Apple store have an app – ‘Podcasts’ which has all kinds of podcasts available. Topics include – Sport, Ted talks, Radio shows,documentaries etc. Its free and the podcasts can be saved and listened to from your phone at anytime. Have a look yourself and download a few the next time you are online and you can listen to them off line then. (this will also save your phone data).
3. Catch up with friends /family.
Once you have the phone connected to the “hands free” there is nothing nicer than catching up with others while in traffic. It’s a great traffic distraction and before you know it you’ll have reached your destination and had a good natter too.
4. Park the day’s events in one side.
This time in the car is especially handy if you’ve had a busy day and need to organise your thoughts/feelings from the day gone by. If you are on your own in the car you can even talk out loud through any issues you might have had and re-organise them . I would also recommend that you identify some positive moments of the day and things you are grateful for. By doing this on the journey home, your mind will be settled for the evening ahead and lend to a more positive person when you get home to your family/kids.
Enjoy and don’t hesitate to comment below with what you do to keep from “that dreaded road rage”!
Stay holistic 🙂
