47 HOURS in traffic!
Posted 2/6/2013 8:58:00 AM

According to the latest report, South Floridians spend about 47 hours a year stuck in traffic. That's more than a week of work. It's so frustrating. Aside from knowing that you'll be late to wherever you're going, there just isn't very much you can do to occupy your time. Anything that takes your attention away from the road ahead can be dangerous, so that leaves out reading, texting and finishing your makeup.

Of course, listening to the radio is a great option (thank you to all the LITE FM Listeners who mentioned that as their number one way to stay calm during a traffic jam). Singing along with your favorite songs always helps relieve stress!

Some other options - that won't even distract you from the radio, much less the road:

Take deep breaths. It's amazing how much this can clear your mind and relax your body.

Keep some lavendar ...
