I don’t know about you, but I’m a fast driver, probably too fast most of the time. And as fast as I drive there are still people that make me look like I’m doing a slow crawl. I should probably be more worried about speed than I am, but what really annoys me is when I see people not allowing others to merge and being generally rude while driving. I’m guilty of this too. Being in a car makes it easy to bypass being courteous as quickly as we bypass another car.

So I have a goal for this week. I’m going to try to slow down, stay calm in the car, and be a more courteous driver. I anticipate forgetting sometimes, but at least I’ll be trying.

Want to try with me and see if you actually feel better about driving at the end of the week? Maybe you’ll even find that you think about engaging your core more while driving and get a double bonus out of it.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.

    I think this is a GREAT idea. Slowing down in the car and in our daily routines would seem to benefit all of us. Can we also talk about “right on red”? Drivers don’t seem to realize that the priviledge of “right on red” only exists when another car is NOT coming. No one should have to slow down or brake fast because someone just went “right on red”. Sorry, just used your blog as a soap box. I’m breathing again and SLOWING DOWN 🙂
