A big part of mindfulness is about being more aware of others and focusing on positive thoughts. Not always easy when you’re already half-an-hour late for work, have just crawled through several miles of roadworks and some boy racer cuts in front of you at the roundabout.
“It might sound corny, but wishing your other commuters love, or if that’s too much to muster, at least a pleasant and happy day will make us all more considerate drivers,” explains Emma. “If we were all taking more care of each other on the roads, it would inevitably mean fewer accidents and fewer frayed tempers.”
In reality, that’s not an easy thing to do – but it should leave you with a greater sense of wellbeing than swearing and gesturing through the window (we’ve all done it).
And another way to feel zen on your commute? Knowing that you’ve got a great deal on your car insurance.
