Spending moments throughout the day to periodically pause helps us to slow that speed of life so that we can notice our travels and the amazing view. When we're able to reduce our speed, all sorts of important driving information shows up. Checking our gauges, we can make sure we have enough healthy fuel to complete our trip, we can decide in advance which route might be less congested and a good work-around for those nasty construction sites, and we have a more accurate read of the weather and road conditions.
Like driving in the snow (how was your commute today?), we improve with practice and are able to adjust quickly to meet the needs of the ever-changing precursors for safe travel. We connect with our instinct and develop resiliency and strength to go the distance. In order to do that, however, we need to know the condition of our situation and what our personal "vehicle" is capable of. A vehicle that hasn't been maintained in a while may find it more challenging to meet the demands of ever changing conditions. Maintenance and upkeep are key to a safe and comfortable ride. Mindfulness, by the way, is a great maintenance mechanic. Connect with me if you have more questions on that.
In this video, I offer a fun and interesting way to check your gauges when you're out traveling about and how you can support your vehicle moving forward in the direction you desire. Take a look and let me know what you think.
Have a super day! And if you aren't enjoying today's April snow, you can rest easy knowing that tomorrow's forecast is for the mid 50's.
