We're back to Sunday already and time to share some helpful ideas to make our daily chores and lives a bit easier. Today let's focus on driving. Most of us drive and many of us don't care much for it because it's hard. What do you do to make your driving a bit easier on your body?

My first rule is to make as few trips as I have to. I used to be able to go out and make many stops along the way and get all of my errands done on one afternoon. Now days I can do 2 stops at more per day. But that's OK because when I get home I'm in much better shape. So know your limit and try to have a list ready when you shop so you make the more e fficient use of your time.

What tips do you have for more comfortable driving?

   Dear Chutz,
 
     When I did drive, I made sure the music was something soothing and low volume.

Back in the days when I drove, I always made sure I got in a parking space I could drive out of instead of backing out. Looking over my shoulder was too much for me! I'd pull all the way through the parking spot so that all I had to do was put it into drive and go!

One thing a fibro friend of mine always used was a heated seat insert. It's like the kind you can put in a chair that has head and massage but it plugs into the cig lighter for power. That way you can be comfortable all the way.
