This morning I made it home on autopilot. I’ve done this numerous times. Just like an ant- I know the route home off by heart.
I caught myself twice that I had zoned out. Once was driving past a police car with someone pulled over. Next, I was suddenly at my exit off the freeway without realizing it.
It still worries me though. I don’t like the sensation of losing the time. Once in a while I’ll take a different route home from the freeway just to change it up. I usually do that if I’m really tired. But it’s that long stretch driving for twenty minutes that has my mind wandering.
I can’t think of a good way to keep myself focused. I’ve tried a variety of music, podcasts, talk radio, even hands free calling.
Who knows. Hopefully one day I don’t have to drive anymore. Then I can zone out all the time.
