Driving Anxiety is Ruining Your Life
The feeling of pressure mounts quickly; You begin to feel the rush of adrenaline overtaking your body, as your mind races a mile a minute. Your vision narrows and you begin to sweat…the feeling is overwhelming.
No matter how hard you try to concentrate, you can’t help but think of the worst-case scenario. Your temperature is through the roof now and you can feel a tingling sensation throughout your body. When will this feeling subside? Why can’t you control it?
Is anxiety in the driver’s seat of your life? Does it prevent you from being able to function on a daily basis? A 2016 study in Ontario found that 40% of respondents experience anxiety and never seek help. Many of these occur as a result of operating a vehicle.
Whether you’ve experienced a traumatic accident, or you’re simply having difficulty dealing with life’s many stresses.
