7 Ways To Get Inspired On The Ride To Work

Are you sick of listening to the same songs and reliving the same morning again and again on your drive to work? Well, now is the time to make a change. Your ride to work can either help you to feel more inspired, or make you tired. You should get out of the car ready to face whatever the day has in store for you! Below, you’ll find 7 ways to get inspired on the ride to work. Take a look and see what you discover:

Stay Mindful 

Did you know that the car is one of the easiest places to unconsciously react to other drivers around you? This is why road rage is so common, and you can go from zen to completely lost your cool in a matter of seconds. Before getting in the car, remind yourself to stay mindful. Take deep breaths and don’t let your emotions take over. Your drive to work can become a daily mindfulness practice. 

Use Affirmations For The Day 

Try using a few affirmations for the day that you feel might help you at work. How do you want to feel today? Strong? Capable? Confident? Tell yourself that that’s what you are. Say it with conviction. Mean it and feel it. By the time you arrive at work you should feel ready to take on anything. 

Make Your Vehicle An Inspiring Place 

While you may not be able to decorate your vehicle like you can decorate your home, you can still make it an inspiring place. Keep it clean, and make sure it’s safe. Invest in wheels & tires if you need to so that the ride to work is smooth. Make it smell good too. Look after your space. 

Know Exactly How The Day Is Going To Go

Not sure how the day is going to go? You get to decide. Imagine everything going your way today. Then, all you have to do is hold that vision and act like the world is on your side. You’d be surprised at how effective this can be. 

Listen To A Podcast Or An Audiobook 

You could make the most of your drive to work by listening to a podcast or an audiobook. By the end of the year, you will have finished so many more books. This can be a great way to feel more inspired by the time you arrive at work, too. 

Come Up With Small, Bite Sized Goals For The Day 

Most successful people will have goals for the week, month, and year. Don’t forget about small goals for the day, either! Make them measurable and achievable. 

Refuse To Waste Mental Energy On Things That Don’t Matter 

Wasting mental energy on things that don’t matter can ruin your entire day. Don’t think about things that don’t really matter if you can help it. Use your mental energy on things that will make a big difference to your day. 

Are you ready to feel inspired on the ride to work?
