If you have a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, keep your wrists relaxed and allow your elbows to drop slowly while you are driving. Remember at all times to keep a position in which you are most comfortable, drive safely, and give your body some workout by practicing yoga.
How can you reduce tension in your wrists, fingers, shoulders, and neck? Interlace your fingers and stretch your hands in front of you while keeping the arms as straight as possible. Do it only when appropriate. Another exercise that can release tension from different parts of your body is taking your hands outside your car and back when your car is stopped or idling.
The symptoms of driver fatigues include the following: tired eyes, poor concentration, delayed reactions, yawning, boredom, drowsiness, oversteering, and restlessness.
Here are some driving yoga suggestions to prevent fatigue while driving:
1. Perform conscious breathing exercises. According to studies, simple breathing and being fully conscious of it can boost energy and mental alertness. What you can do is sit straight and let the air that you inhale drop into your belly. As you breathe out, begin low and release the air all the way up through the nose. 2. Do some jiggling Move and shake your hips up into your lower back. Just don’t do it after eating a heavy meal.3. Do some spinal twists. This exercise, which should be done only when the car is stopped, will give you more energy. Here’s how to do it: With your hips facing forward and your foot placed firmly on the brake, take a deep breath. As you breathe out, reach across your body by grasping the edge of the seat at your right with your left hand. While you’re doing it, slowly twist your upper torso to the right side. Your head should follow the twist; do this by looking over your shoulders at the rear seat. At the next stoplight, do the same exercise-this time you twist to the other direction.
