Spend a lot of time in your car? Yeah, I hear you. Don’t succumb to the average way of thinking and let it be a drag. Instead, be a super smart mofo and use your commuting time to improve yourself.
I used to be all about playing loud, hardcore driving music – and then wonder why I felt anxious and stressed in traffic. Now, thanks to my super smart brother, I spend my drive improving my mind listening to podcasts. If you’re interested in stuff (and let’s face it, most of us are) search itunes and be blown away by the array of free resources, download some and expand your brain. You’ll have to start throwing dinner parties to use all the information you’ll be thrilling and freaking your friends out with.
It’s not just about your brain, either. Don’t put on your mascara at the lights – get your spine straight. Practice using your seat to actually support your body – coz your chin isn’t meant to be poking forward like Mr Magoo. Head back, neck long, spine in line. When you’ve got that down, practice doing it during your whole drive – not just at the lights. Then get ready to blow people away with your amazing posture.
Don’t say I never do anything for you!
