We’re in the middle of a tremendously busy season of work, events, and family gatherings. Most require time going to and fro and in America’s automobile culture that generally means time in your car. This can be a big drain or a big gain depending on how you address it.
Some people stress more while driving. Everything from getting cut off to the amount of traffic amps up the tension. Or perhaps you’re a worrier, and spend your drive time caught in a cycle of repetitive, negative thoughts about what happened at work, the barbed email you just got from your ex, or your budget. None of this is helpful to your body and as I’ve covered in other blog articles on stress and your skin it can immediately detrimentally affect your skin and bring on conditions like acne, eczema, and dermatitis.
With a few easy, accessible techniques you can short circuit this car quandary and transform yourself from frazzled to beatific as you bop around town. With the help of Sheila Fazio I tell you how in our recent video on how to “Stress Less While Driving – 3 ways to relax during your drive”.
Sheila is a truly gifted healer and a beautiful soul. I met her at a women’s retreat and learned a series of powerful breathing techniques from her that were different from most of the yogic breathing I had been taught before. Her unique experiences as a social worker combined with her own personal life challenges give her a beautiful depth, approachability, and empathy for the challenges we all face.
