Put On Your Favorite Playlist

Put on your favorite playlist and crank it up. Don’t be afraid to sing along. In fact, belt it out as if you are a rockstar performing a concert. Who cares if people can hear you? This will help you enjoy your commute and you may make them smile, too. Choose your favorite music and make sure it is music that always puts you in a happy mood. Don’t listen to depressing music.

Listen to an Audiobook

Listen to an audiobook while you are sitting in traffic. All books these days come in audiobook form, so it’s easy to find books written by your favorite authors. You’d be surprised how much time flies when you’re taken into the fantasy world a book brings. Just make sure to pay attention to traffic while you are enjoying the tale.

Take Along Your Favorite Beverage

Always make sure you have your favorite beverage to sip from when you are stuck in traffic. This can boost your spirit simply because the flavor tastes so good. If you can, avoid caffeinated beverages. Caffeine makes you agitated more easily and you may find your commute more intolerable because the caffeine is making you impatient.

Breathe Deeply to Keep Calm

It’s easy to take deep breaths while you are driving because you don’t have to close your eyes or lose track of the traffic ahead of you. If you feel yourself getting agitated, take long, deep breaths Exhale slowly to calm yourself down.

Learn a New Language

You can also use this time to learn a new language. Download an audio language program to your device and listen to it while you are driving. If you’re the only person in your car, you won’t be embarrassed to practice the new phrases out loud.
