Mindful Driving - Deepstash

Mindful Driving

  • Take a deep breath. This simple, yet profound advice helps bring more oxygen into your body and widens the space between the stimulus of the traffic and your heightened stress reaction. In this space lies perspective and choice.
  • Ask yourself what you need and give that to yourself. It may be in that moment that you need to feel safe, at ease or you just need some relief. 
  • Look around and recognize that all the other drivers are just like you. Everyone on the road wants the same thing you do—to feel safe, have a sense of ease, and to be happy.
