Tackle Your Tuesday: Tips For A Happier Commute


Hello everyone. I hope you all had a great day. I am so glad to be at home. The last two days have really tested my patience as I have been adjust to my new Monday Tuesday routine of picking my children up. Sitting in traffic is just not my thing! I can feel the anxiety running through my boday, and even though I am listening to great tunes, I can’t help but to think of the long travel ahead of me.

If you live anywhere in Southern California then you know the daily struggles of traffic. It is really getting out of control. It’s like we spend most of our time in our cars! Nevertheless it is still an obstacle I am willing to face head on. Between all the traffic jams, people honking, and speeding, there can be peace within the maddness. Here are 3 tips to try will being stuck in traffic:

1. Dance like nobodies watching. Yes. I am that crazy person you pull up next to and is getting her groove on. It relaxes me, and of course, I’m burning calories too!

2. Don’t look over. So say you so happen to accidentally cut someone off and they proceed to honk their horn at you. I’ve learn to not even look over into their car as they pass. Chances are you’re going to get the finger or cursed at. Calm down people! (You’ll definitely thank me later for this one.)

3. Find a self help audio book to listen to. Whether it is the bible, fitness, nutrition, or motivation. These books will help you put things into perspective, and give you the best ideas while you are driving.

I have a lot more tips in my head, but I can feel myself getting pretty tired, so it’s time to wrap this up. I hope you enjoyed my tips, and try them out tomorrow if you can. Happy commuting everyone!

Live.🌿 Love. 💖 Well & Fit. 💪

I must not leave before I give a very special birthday shout out to my baby girl. She turned 5 today! Daddy and I love you Malia, and we are blessed to be your parents.
