Commute Tidbits

I’m pretty lucky these days, that my commute consists of either  2 minutes down the hall or a 2.5 hour plane ride, away from home for 3-5 days…  Either way, not much sitting in traffic…

But i did find an interesting article in Fitness magazine about it

According to the article:

Smell:  Plug in a green-apple or cucumber air freshener. “These scents promote calmness and relaxation”.

Sound: Singing along to the radio interrupts the breathing patterns that causes anger and tension

Feel: At a red light, repeatedly tighten your grip on the steering wheel and then let go. This prompts the brain to release mental stress.

Think I’ll keep this list around for our road trips!
