How many hours a day do you spend in traffic? Way too much, we bet!

Whether you’re occasionally stopped in the middle of a sea of motorists, or you “enjoy” traffic jams on your daily commute, we’ve got a treat for you. Here’s our top 5 list of things to do while you’re stuck in traffic – while respecting the laws, of course! (That’s why the SYNC MyFord Touch system is so useful. Just saying.)

5. In car Karaoke

In car singing

Get out your hits of the 90s and break loose by singing the lyrics out loud — you can do it alone, with your passengers, or even with the people in the cars around you! Good mood guaranteed!

4. Learn a new language

French, Spanish, Cantonese? It doesn’t matter! Slip a lesson CD in the audio system and prepare to learn something that will help you tremendously on your next travel adventure.

3. Do facial exercises

Facial exercises

You already know that we should all be doing 30 minutes of activity a day … but did you know that facial exercises are also part of a healthy lifestyle? I really want facial exercises to become a trend for people stuck in traffic — funny faces all around! Oh the joy!

2. Relax your diaphragm

Just breathe sign

Either by breathing exercises or singing, relaxing your diaphragm is one of the best things you can do to eliminate stress. And who doesn’t feel a little stressed in traffic?

1. Listen to a podcast or an audiobook

Boy with Books

Is your favourite radio show on during work hours? Is the latest best-selling book gathering dust on your nightstand because you just don’t have the time to open it? Get back on top of it while in traffic, by listening to a podcast or audiobook!
