3 Ways to Improve Your Driving Focus

While rapid technological advancements are a great thing for society as a whole, they do tend to come with a hefty price tag—the human attention span.

As technology continues advancing at a rapid pace, the human attention span is getting worse and worse.

This may be a good thing for the economy because corporate America often demands that workers multitask to get through a significant workload, but it may not be so great for drivers out on the road who must focus to stay safe.

Read on to learn three ways you can improve your focus while driving.

#1 - Make a commitment not to use your phone while driving.

Setting your phone to Do Not Disturb or Driving Mode can help you reduce the number of distractions your phone poses while you’re on the road.

Similarly, you shouldn’t have to look at your phone while you’re driving if you set up your GPS directions before taking the car out of park. Along the same vein, you should also be sure to plug in your playlist before hitting the gas so you don’t have to search for your favorite songs while the car is moving.

#2 - Think about what’s going on around you and become aware of your surroundings.

If you notice your mind start to wander while you’re driving, it can be a good idea to try and re-focus on the road elements immediately nearby. Consider the following:

  • Are there other vehicles driving near you?
  • Is someone driving directly behind you?
  • Are any vehicles currently entering or exiting the roadway?
  • What are the road and weather conditions?
    • Do they look like they could suddenly change?

#3 - Get some air.

Sometimes, simply rolling down the window or turning on the air conditioning can help you regain the focus you need for driving. It can be easy to get wrapped up in your thoughts behind the wheel, but feeling the cool air on your skin can be a good way to help you concentrate on the road again.
