The next time someone cuts you off in traffic or is too slow starting up when the light turns green, send him or her a pleasant thought. Try I wish you happiness or May you be safe and healthy. This is an aspect of “loving kindness” meditation that can help to keep you calm and generate a feeling of compassion. Once you try this for a little while, you’ll have a whole new, softer outlook on your fellow travelers and a happier commute, and you’ll be a more relaxed driver!
