Being stuck in traffic can make you smarter!


Looking out the window and seeing the morning traffic inspired me to share this with you. Whenever I'm stuck in traffic I try to make use of the otherwise wasted time by listening to Italian CDs and learning to speak Italian. You could learn a new language, too, or choose other learnings that interest you. Una buona idea, si? :)

Buy audio books to listen in your car; you could listen to motivational speakers, or topics on finance, business, and even health. By the time you get to your destination, you could learn that the cells of your body is constantly renewing themselves, so healing yourself from illness is more possible than you are led to believe.

Or you would learn that our awe-inspiring, incomprehensibly gigantic Universe consists of countless solar systems that contain planets similar to Earth, and that those are just the ones we know about, since most of the stars we've looked at are within about 300 light- years of Earth and the distance to the center of our galaxy is nearly 100 times that — and you would then realize that the silly thing you said or the dry-cleaning you forgot to pick up are about as significant as the gum under your shoe.

So enjoy your time when stuck in traffic, knowing that when you reach your destination, you would arrive smarter than when you left your house.
