Simple steps to ease your mood behind the wheel

  • Focus on calm, controlled breathing, which can help release muscular tension and relieve stress.
  • Plan your route carefully, and allow plenty of time for your journey to avoid feeling pressured to rush.
  • Drive at appropriate speeds for the road environment and avoid overtaking unless absolutely necessary, to reduce feelings of tension.
  • Have something to eat before setting off, as hunger can affect your concentration. However, do not eat at the wheel as this could distract you from driving.
  • Consider alternatives to driving, such as walking, cycling, or public transport, as these may help you to arrive feeling calmer and more refreshed.
