If The Fear Of Driving Alone Stops You From Living Your Life To The Fullest, Then You Need To Read This…
A very common fear that many people experience is the fear of driving alone. Your mind begins to race with everything that could go wrong while you are driving alone, and you don’t have the comfort of someone else there with you if it does go wrong. Before long, you very quickly lose all control of your thoughts, and every possible thing that could happen floods your mind and become overwhelmed, scared, and the anxiety and panic begins to set in.
You begin to feel your heart rate speed up and it feels as though your heart is going to jump right out of your chest. Your breathing becomes shallow and quick, and it feels as though you are being smothered as your chest tightens up making it harder and harder to breath at all. You can feel the sweat begin to form on your face and head, and your hands feel like you just ran them under running water because they are so wet. It isn’t long after all this that you begin to feel light headed and dizzy, and your stomach begins to knot up and you feel as though you could vomit all over the place.
Relax, you aren’t really driving right now, your just reading those words. But I know that you can relate to them because it’s exactly what you feel every time you get behind the wheel of your vehicle, and especially when you are driving alone. This is a very common experience for many people, and it’s something that anyone who experiences this problem very quickly wants to overcome. The good news is that there are ways to deal with your fear and anxiety while driving alone.
To start, you need to keep in mind is that your fear is completely a subconscious fear. It happens over a period of time and can be overcome, and undone. The key is to practice feeling relaxed, calm, and completely at ease while driving. There are times when you feel this way while driving alone, and you need to use these times to change your subconscious programming. When you are behind the wheel and you feel this calm, relaxed, completely at peace feeling. You need to use it to your advantage.
Start by paying very close attention to how you are feeling, and remember those feelings. Focus on them as strongly as possible when you feel them and continue to tell yourself “I am always calm, relaxed, and at peace like this when I drive alone.” This begins to program this thought and these emotions into your subconscious mind to help you overcome your basic fear at other times.
The next thing you need to do is recall these emotions when you begin to feel anxiety or fear. This means you need to literally take yourself back in your mind to the time when you felt calm, relaxed, and completely at peace. Recall how you were sitting, and sit like that. Recall what facial experessions you had. Chances are you were smiling gently, and you need to do that again when the anxiety and panic sets in.
The key is to recall as much detail as possible about how you were sitting, feeling, thinking, and everything else when you feel calm and peaceful. Then, when you feel anxiety set in, simply sit, feel, and think the exact same things in order to calm yourself down and get back to that state of emotional calm and relaxation.
You don’t have to experience anxiety or fear while driving alone. There are some very powerful techniques available that will teach you how to use techniques like the one above in order to reprogram your subconscious mind and overcome that panic you experience when you are by yourself.
