How to reduce stress while driving using Logosynthesis.

Driving can feel stressful.

Summer road trips and drives to the cottage can lead to fun times but they can also be a source stress en route. Heavy traffic, construction and casual drivers can be a source of anxiety and tension.  However, it can also be a significant source of stress for many people. Rushing to get to your destination or to get home after a relaxing weekend can cancel the lower stress levels of your holidays. However, if you take time to notice your stressful patterns, you can transform your driving experience into a more relaxed and enjoyable one. In this blog post, I will describe how you can use Logosynthesis to resolve your stressful patterns and automatic reactions for a more relaxing summertime drive.

You don’t need to stay stuck in stressful patterns.

Do you ever pause to notice when you feel anxious while driving? Do you recognize that you may feel tense in situations when others feel completely relaxed? Some anxiety and tension can support defensive driving, yet it is common to get stuck in stressful patterns of reacting. Yelling at the driver in front of you when they are driving ‘too slow’. Sounding the horn when an aggressive driver pulls out to pass. Even passengers can get stuck in the stress of driving by grasping the door handle every time the driver gets ‘too close’ to the car in front. 

Your reaction is often triggered by mental imagery related to a prior experience rather than the current incident. Using Logosynthesis, you can identify and shift the memory that is triggering your response. When this is resolved, you are free to choose your response in the moment. You feel calmer. Those around you feel calmer.
