Five minutes to happier drives! Before driving to any destination I take a few minutes to prepare for the drive. I've learned that taking the following steps really help me to focus and deal with driving situations that become apparent during my trips.
Most of the time I can get all this done in less than five minutes, giving me additional time to get to my intended location (stuff happens). It took me a while to form this routine but I realize that when I didn't perform these one minute tasks my driving experience suffered. Since driving is usually the first and last part of most daily activities I encounter outside my home I prefer safe and pleasant journeys. Maybe you get ready to drive in less time, that’s great! This five minute routine is what helps me keep my eyes on the road, hands on the wheel and drastically reduce the times when I feel the desire to participate in road rage.
