Jamie and I were talking about what causes people to be STRESSED while driving!
It appears that most people have some kind of “issue” as they drive – I like to think when I get behind the wheel I’m in a good head space. That is until someone ticks me off and I perhaps – SQUEAL MY TIRES!
Much stress – so says the survey, is blamed on the other drivers. Of course it is, people are so stupid!!!!!
Have you ever just observed drivers? I can view this from my balcony every day. New drivers, practice the art of parallel parking, changing lanes, stopping and making the popular right hand turn! Some are very skilful, although timid and others are a train wreck. The experience of wanting a license on that first try remains vivid with me and its been 40 years!!
Here are some of the things that drive our stress levels. Do you agree or have your own!
You are being followed – nope – just being tailgated. Where did that guy come from. I think we have all been guilty of that!
Poor driving decisions – people cutting you off, cutting in and out of traffic. How about speeding past you then slowing down. Again, cutting you off.
Your driving along and then boom – you hit a deep pothole. What happened to my shocks!
Crappy weather and realizing this is not where you want to be – ON black ice!
Headlights that are beaming right at you – those blue lights. Or blinding you from behind!
I’m stressed now! Do you ever wish you were a cop! You get a ticket – you get a ticket!! You know what I’m saying.
Maybe doing yoga or other ZEN like applications might make driving easier.
