Positive Tips #13: Take a leisurely drive

There’s something about taking a spontaneous drive by yourself or with friends that produces positive vibes for you. I can’t exactly say what it is, but every single time that I get a calling in the back of my head to go for a drive and I actually go for a drive, I feel 500% better.

Maybe it’s the feeling that you’re letting some of your worries go. Maybe going to a new part of town is exciting and you can discover them easily by driving. Maybe it’s the change of scenery that really brightens up your day. There could be numerous reasons why taking a drive feels so good. I would encourage others to do the same.

Forget about going to areas with a lot of traffic and where you’ll end up getting road rage. Choose some quiet back roads where there won’t be that many cars. Pump up the tunes in the car (go ahead go crazy and listen to Britney Spears, sometimes I do :P). Let your problems and worries fall away for a 20 minute span of time. All you have to focus on is the road ahead of you and getting your groove on in the car. Guaranteed you will feel tremendously better after the drive.
