Mindful Driving. How to create a stress free drive – leading to a healthier, happier you.

Saturday 19th October 9:30 to 12:30 £47

Stress affects us all. It is a part of life. But it doesn’t need to be feared or loathed, we can learn to experience it for what it is, a collection of thoughts and feelings, and let go of them if we choose. What’s more we can implement simple practices which reframe our stress triggers, bypassing stress in a situation altogether.

 

Driving can be a big cause of stress for a lot of people, occasionally or constantly, be it because of busy traffic, the motorway, anger and aggressive drivers, or the responsibility of driving safely. It seems to be the nature of driving to bring stress to the surface. However, driving is also the perfect vehicle (excuse the pun) for letting go of stress. It gives us the opportunity to experience the world from within a bubble, looking out onto the world around us like we’re watching a movie. This can create separation allowing us to take a more objective perspective on situations, helping us choose a response which benefits ourselves and those around us.

 

In this workshop you will:

  • learn how to safely identify stress as soon as it comes up while driving. This is an important step to putting you back in control over how you respond to situations on the road

  • learn tried and tested tools and techniques to let go of stress and fully relax into your drive, increasing your enjoyment regardless of what is happening around you

  • use the ‘’Valued Centred Perspective’ to change the way you approach driving so that you can cultivate a stress free drive from the very start of any journey. This will change the way you look at driving, giving it a whole new meaning, far beyond simply getting from A to B

  • be invited to share your experiences of stress on the road with the group, so that we can work through them together, helping you to re-frame the way you look at these moments and therefore the way you will look at future stress situations. This is a great exercise in seeing how what we have talked about will apply to your driving. If you don’t want to talk about your own experiences then you will still find benefit in listening to others talk about theirs

  • be given a structured and safe way to implement what you have learnt into your drive from the moment you leave the workshop
