    How to avoid tension when driving – and personal injury lawyers in Paignton

    Driving can be one of the main activities you do that risks making your body feel achy and tense. When you are driving you should always be aware that you have to be careful and stay alert to keep yourself safe, but this can make you feel stressed every time you get behind the wheel. If your body feels tense and uncomfortable at the same time then this will just add to this feeling. Being stressed can lead to road rage, or it can lead you into situations where you act rashly and cause an accident. Here are some ways that you can stay calm when you are on the road.

    Make yourself comfortable

    One of the things which can easily make you feel uncomfortable every time you get into the car is if your seat and headrest aren’t appropriately set up. Sitting in an uncomfortable position is bound to make you feel a little more stressed than you otherwise would. Adjust your seat and headrest so that you can comfortably reach all of the pedals and controls, and so that you are sitting upright but completely comfortable.

    Leave your mirrors alone

    As the day goes on you may find that you begin to slouch and this will cause your eyeline to change from when you get into your car in the morning, to when you drive home in the evening. Don’t adjust your mirrors as the day goes on to accommodate this new position, but instead leave the mirrors alone and train yourself to sit up just as straight at the end of the day as you did at the beginning.

    Stay calm

    Listen to relaxing music or learn how to take deep breaths and calm yourself down even during a very stressful driving situation. Being angry or stressed makes you more tense than almost anything else, so do your best to avoid it.
