Can you believe summer is right around the corner? There are officially less than one month until the summer vacation. Do you know what that means? It means it’s the time of year when many people hit the road for a, you guessed it – road trip!
But as fun as road trips are, they’re also very dangerous at the same time. Thousands of road trippers get in accidents every year, and one of those reasons is falling asleep at the wheel. So with that said, we would like to dedicate this blog to give you, that’s right, YOU, a few tips you can use if you get a little sleepy behind the wheel this summer (or any summer).
1) Do not drive through the night. It may seem like it makes a lot of sense to hit the road when there’s hardly any other traffic, but driving during times when your body is used to being asleep can be very dangerous.
2) Stop at the nearest truck stop, buy a $2 CD, and listen to the entire thing. Listening to anything, especially unfamiliar songs, is a great way to keep your mind active, and your body awake.
3) Stay as far away as possible from energy drinks. No matter what the label says, your body will crash shortly after that burst of energy wears off. Instead, try drinking water and eating foods like trail mix that comes in many little pieces.
