    Stress usually starts before you get behind the wheel. The more you can reduce stress in your daily life, the safer you will be behind the wheel. You can reduce stress in your daily life by taking care of yourself.

    Pause Before You Drive

    Before you drive, take a minute to think about what you are doing. Remind yourself that your focus while behind the wheel should be safe driving. If you are already feeling stressed, try to do the following before driving:

    • Change your mood with a smile and good posture. Smiling and sitting up straight can help to improve your mood.
    • Refocus your mind by practicing gratitude. You can practice gratitude by thinking of three things that you’re thankful for.

    Be Prepared

    Whether you are driving to work, on an errand, or taking a long road trip, preparation can help you avoid many driving stresses. You can prepare by doing the following:

    • Give yourself extra travel time. Being late can cause additional stress. Even if you are running late you should continue to make safe driving choices.
