Yoga helps with road rage
I think my practice has helped me with road rage. First I wouldn’t say I’ve ever had crazy road rage or anything- but everyone gets mad about being stuck in traffic!
I used to spend the time stuck in traffic angry. Now what’s the point in that? I’m stuck no matter what I’m feeling. Why spend that time angry?
I think it comes back to being comfortable being uncomfortable in the hot room. Bikram yoga has really helped me in uncomfortable situations. Traffic included.
These days when I’m in traffic I just put on some good music and jam out. We should make the best of a crappy situation! I try to let people in and give the curtesy wave when people let me in (what happened to the curtesy wave anyway?).
I didn’t notice my loss of road rage until riding in the car with my hubby and he get all angry and I’m fine. I realized we were stuck and moved on. It’s like in class: yes it’s hot as hell- let’s move on.
