Traffic can ruin everything from a road trip to a work commute, but don’t let it ruin you! Here are some tips on how to deal with the traffic in New York without losing your mind, from us at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick.
This may seem obvious, but you need to breathe! If the cars in front of you aren’t going anywhere, take a deep breath in and out. Practicing deep breathing can help reduce your anxiety and slow your heart rate down.
If you’re going to be in traffic for a while, then you’ll want to get comfortable. Make sure that you are cool or warm enough, whether that means blasting the A/C or opening the windows. If you run into traffic often, you can get a seat cushion or seat cover to help keep you comfy.
Blast Your Favorite Tunes
You know those songs that you can’t resist singing along to? Make a playlist of your favorite songs and call it “Traffic Tunes.” That way when you’re stuck in traffic, you can sing along to your favorite music and pretend you’re on “The Voice.” It’s a great way to distract you from the stress of traffic.
Take a deep breath, crank the tunes in your Buick, and kiss that traffic stress goodbye!
