Driving can be even more rewarding this New Year — here’s why
Going out is still not an option during the holidays due to the pandemic. With the quarantine restrictions in place, everyone is discouraged from taking the usual shoulder-bumping walks around their communities. Now, the safest way to go out for some R&R is to stay inside the car and drive around. The good news is this New Year, driving can be more than a much-needed escape from the four corners of the home.
Here are the reasons driving can be an even more rewarding experience in 2021.
Driving encourages the brain to relax and focus
Driving makes the mind more relaxed because it’s focused on the road. This is because the brain’s central executive remains alert all throughout the entire time. That also explains why people can drive with laser-focus.
Being on the road, after all, is a multitasking skill. Drivers not only have to step on the gas and stir the wheel, but also pay attention to the people crossing the road, the street signs,.the other vehicles on the road, all while monitoring the driving speed.
Time-out and slow down when driving
Health experts advise everyone going out to maintain physical distancing and wear the necessary mask and face shield. This rules out a meditative walk. In this situation, driving can be the ultimate form of relaxation outside the house.
Over the past years, many people have acknowledged that being behind the wheel has turned into a therapeutic activity. With windows down, driving can help a person get the inspiration he or she needs. The sight of nature, or even the concrete jungle, enables one to think outside the four corners of their home — literally.
Driving can also offer rewards. Literally.
