3 Ways To Relieve Stress While In A Traffic

Keeping calm and cool in the car when moving at a Turtle’s pace through traffic is sometimes easier said than done. While being stuck in traffic may be more difficult to deal with everyday, almost twice a day, finding a sense of inner peace while sitting for longer periods of unexpected time is worth it.

How do I keep my cool during my commute? Here are the three ways to relieve stress while in traffic:

#1 – Opening the car windows

The fact that you’re about to spend the next nine hours sitting down in a cubicle and breathing recirculating air brings most people’s moral down, so on the way and after work put your windows down and enjoy some fresh air. The wind blowing through your hair and face can help you to stay awake, feel alive, and bring your spirits up towards your destination. If you live in an area that has chilly temperatures 60 degrees or below, a stress relieving trick you can enjoy is turning your heater on towards your legs and then put your windows down is extremely relaxing, trust me.

#2 – Have a tasty drink in the morning

Stop by a store, drive-thru, or bring something from home to enjoy on your drive to work. You could of course have coffee, but it isn’t for everyone, you can have a smoothie, juice, soda, or whatever favorite beverage you like to keep handy on your way to work. Though it shouldn’t have to be said but this does exclude any drink that contains alcohol of any sort.

#3 – Create a smooth playlist


There’s only one reason why speakers and a stereo system was installed in cars; and that’s to enjoy music. Certain music is appropriate for meditation as it can help the mind and initiate relaxation. Smooth music like Jazz, Blues, Classical, R&B, Bachata, and Reggae are just a few genres that are comforting in commute to your destination. Create a playlist and search around to find what produces a sense of calmness for you.

Handling Road Rage

Road rage is a very extreme example of unsafe driving behavior. Drivers usually experience frustration behind the wheel due to traffic or road conditions. Aggressive driving causes 66% percent of all accidents in Florida. It is important to always remember to keep your cool when driving especially if another driver is pushing your buttons.
Here are some tips that may help you avoid road rage or someone who has road rage:

1.Be calm
You gain nothing from engaging in aggressive behavior with another driver. It is always better to be the bigger person. There’s no prize if the aggressive driver does get ahead on the road. If the aggressive driver does continue to threat you, someone in your car can call the police and report it.

2. Use your horn
The car horn is there purposely to warn other drivers who may not be able to see you or avoiding an accident. The horn isn’t supposed to be used unnecessarily so when properly needed don’t be afraid to actually use it.

3. Move over
Nobody likes driving with someone tailgating him or her along the way. If someone is driving closely behind you, just move over. They’ll try and get right on your bumper to try and make you go faster. Don’t encourage their bad habits by doing so. In addition you shouldn’t brake quickly to try and cause and accidents or getting the driver slow down because that’s just adding risk for both of you.
In addition, Florida is currently trying to pass Bill 203 “Anti-Road Rage Act.” In a nutshell the bill is aimed to stop slower drivers from driving on the left lane at all times. Drivers who are traveling at less than the normal speed are to travel in the right-hand lane or as close to the right hand curb.

Hopefully these helpful tips will avoid you from accidents and handling drivers with road rage.

Top Car Maintenances To Keep Up With

Basic car maintenance really isn't that hard. There are simple things that you can do on your own. Some tips have simple explanations and these tips apply to pretty much every car owner, from business fleet owners, to specialists like a limo service, to the weekend hobbyist. Here are some car maintenances to look for:

Checking Your Oil Levels
If the oil is too high or too low, it can cause trouble for your engine. To check the oil, park on level ground and wait until the engine has cooled down after driving, then locate the dipstick. Pull it out and wipe it clean; then push it all the way back in until the top of it is seated properly in the dip tube again.

Checking Your Coolant Level
The coolant is the other thing your engine cannot go without. Every engine is different but if you check your handbook you should find where the coolant reservoir is. It will normally be bolted to one side of the engine bay or the other, and be a white semi-transparent bottle.

Check Your Tire Pressures
Check your tire pressures regularly; at least once a week is ideal. Bad tire pressures can affect fuel economy, handling and comfort. It's easy to do and there is no excuse not to.

Check Your Tread Depth
Four new tires might seem expensive but they're cheaper than a fine or an accident. Bald, slick tires might be good for motor racing but they're no good on the road. Most tires come with tread wear bars built into them now. Find one, examine it and if your tread is too low, replace your tires.

Clean Brake Dust Off Regularly
Brake dust has all sorts of miscellaneous stuff. If you leave it too long, the combination of road grime, moisture and heat from your brakes will bake it on to your wheels. Brake dust normally clings to wheels with static electricity so a damp sponge and clean cold water is the best way to get it off.

Check Your Battery
If your battery terminals or contacts aren't clean, you're making it more difficult for the current one to pass around the electrical system. Remove the terminal caps and clean each contact post with a wire brush to get a nice clean metal contact surface.

Check Your Belts
At the front of your engine there will be a series of rubber drive belts that loop around various pulleys, driving everything from the alternator to the a/c compressor. Get your timing belt and accessory drive belt checked every 25,000 miles, preferably replacing it every 50,000 miles.
