Of course this only works if you are not running late, have to go to the bathroom, low on gas, well you get the picture. Flashing lights ahead (car accident), don't rant, be thankful it is not you. Car broken down in your lane, you will get by in due time.
The other day on the way home, I was in heavy traffic twice because of multiple car accidents. Each time I took a deep breath and relaxed and it worked. I think I was being Zensible yes?
As I have gotten older I noticed I don't cut time to the second, I allow for the unforeseen to happen and I think of work arounds when some thing does happen.
