I find driving With other people in the car very distracting. I have to tell people to be quiet when I am maneuvering in traffic. And often when I’m traveling on the highway I will miss an exit because if I’m in a conversation with someone.
BUT I love driving alone and sometimes will just get in the car and take a drive when I’m feeling overwhelmed by my racing thoughts. Driving alone in my car, I find that there is just enough concentration on the process of driving to calm down my brain. I feel like I’m in control, in control of something anyway. And my ADD Isn’t messing up my brain.
Wondering if anyone else enjoys driving alone?
