Undoubtedly, there are many folks in love with driving for the sake that they are able to enjoy the freedom as drivers to travel on the straight roads, to breathe the fresh air riding in the suburbs. That’s why many people feel like choosing drivers as their occupation. Well, when it’s a long journey, maybe it will not be an ease experience with body sitting in the driver’s position for hours. The longer the driver, the unnatural the posture and the more likely the body is tensing and causing pain.

Here will share with all on how to ease the tension and make the driving experience a little more pleasant.

1.Fix the back support. 

The driver's seat position causes your body to sit at a flexed angle that is not a usual posture stance. The sagging of your lower back into the car seat will inevitably cause pain from the lack of support, so it is important to remedy this. Add a small lumbar support cushion; your sore muscles won't have to do so much work to keep you in place.

2.Adjust the head rest for comfort. 

It is very important that your head rest is comfortable as this will help to minimize back pain.

3.Keep your eyes at the same level. 

As the day progresses, many people find themselves slumping through tiredness. Rather than stretching back to your proper posture, the temptation is to slouch and adjust the mirrors to suit the lower positioning of your eyes. Instead, aim to leave the mirrors alone and keep your eyes at the same level no matter the time of day. This will force you to maintain the straighter posture of first thing in the day.

4.Practice differential relaxation. 

There are parts of your body that have little choice but to keep working while driving. Differential relaxation places a focus on relaxing those muscles not being used while you are driving. For example, while your neck and shoulders don't actually do the driving, they often end up being a source of pain from driving in one position repeatedly. Try to remember to keep your neck, shoulders, non-working leg, etc. relaxed as the other muscles do the driving work. Pull your shoulders down, sit up straighter, stretch your neck or shrug when waiting at lights, etc.

5.Adjust the seating when visibility is poor. 

Rather than straining forward to see out of the window during rain, fog, snow, etc., it is far better to remain seated properly as usual and to simply move the seat forward a little to help you see better. If the visibility is so bad that you cannot see, take a break and rejoin the traffic when it improves.

6.Keep the temperature even in the car. 

Tension can be brought on by being either too hot or too cold, as your muscles try to compensate for heat loss or gain. Also, being too hot or cold can impact your ability to concentrate, making you feel tense.

7.Stay calm. 

Being frustrated, angry, or enraged by other drivers is not only a waste of time (because you can't control events beyond yourself in this situation), it is a surefire way to build up muscle tension and bring on aches and pains. Acknowledge that it is annoying but go with the flow; think about something else, like planning your weekend or thinking through an idea. Put on music, etc.
