STOP MUSCLE TENSION: Muscle tension is a heavy-hitter to most suffer from stress, causing headaches, neck aches, and as such. While taking a leisurely drive, every time you catch a stoplight, do a full body stretch. Grip the steering wheel hard, tense every muscle from head to toe. Hold your muscles tight and count to six then exhale slowly. As you exhale, release all your tensed muscles simultaneously. You will actually feel the tension drain from your body. Repeat the process as many times you need before the light turns green. 

DEEP BREATHING EXERCISES: The wonders of deep breathing exercises can relieve stress and set you in the right direction towards a healthy day. One method to try is to take in a deep breath through your nose for a count of five, hold for three, breathe out firmly but slowly for another count to five and then repeat. This will not only feed oxygen to your bloodstream and to your vitals, it is a good way to release tension. It is similar to the beginning steps of meditation, just take it slow and don’t make yourself hyperventilate! When is a better time to practice is while taking a drive. 

CLASSICAL MUSIC, WHO WOULD’VE THOUGHT: Listening to Mozart relieves stress!?  Current health studies prove that classical music actually can reduce your heart rate, blood pressure, and stress levels as compared to listening to other music genres like Hard Rock.  So listen to classical music while taking a nice scenic drive and relax.
