You + Your commute = A happier & less stressed you!
How time behind the wheel can help you find inner peace
How much time do you spend in your car? If you’re like most people, your answer is probably, “way too @%#! much!”
The average American spends 100 hours a year just in their commute, never mind all the time spent zipping hither and yon in the rest of their lives. That’s the equivalent of 2 ½ work weeks every year trapped behind the steering wheel, just getting back and forth to their job.
But what if you could turn that wasted time into gold? What if you could use that time to feel:
- Less stressed
- More grounded
- Less irritable
- More tuned into what is good in your life
- More open
- Less reactive
- More able to roll with the inevitable bumps and irritations life throws your way
What impact would that have on your life? What impact would it have on the people around you?
Your commute has the potential to be a powerful practice for personal and spiritual growth. It has the potential to be a place where you can develop a deeper and more consistent sense of peace.
The Drive to Inner Peace: How Your Commute Can Make You Happier & Less Stressed shows you how.

Your car is a mobile learning laboratory!
Whenever I talk to people about how I started writing this book I say, with a touch of humorous understatement, “I realized I wasn’t quite at my best when I got behind the wheel.” Almost without fail people laugh and sheepishly acknowledge that they can relate to that all too well.
If you’re like most people, your car is a rolling microcosm of all the things that keep you feeling unhappy, limited, and stressed in your life – in short, the things that block your inner peace. Things like:
- Wanting to control what you can’t control
- Wanting your current reality to be different than it is
And it happens day after day.
While that may not sound like good news, from the perspective of making positive change, it’s great news. This ebook shows you how to take advantage of using the things that leave you feeling constricted to develop habits and perspectives that open and expand your state of mind.
Bottom line: You’re going to be commuting anyway. Doesn’t it make sense to put that time to use to improve your life?
What you’ll learn
There are countless ways you can get in the way of your own inner peace, and all too many of them show up when we’re behind the wheel! This ebook is packed with dozens of exercises in fourteen difference practice areas. The practice areas include topics such as:
- Navigating negative emotions
- Letting go
The ebook is structured so you can engage it in the way that makes the most sense to you, whether going through it as a step-by-step process or exploring the exercises on an ad hoc basis. An appendix distills all the exercises described throughout the book for easy reference.
