Eating While Driving

Written by Sandra Bain

You slept through all 5 of your alarms and now you’re rushing out the door on your way to work. Your hair is a total mess, you’re wearing odd socks and you skipped breakfast... a coffee and McMuffin are starting to sound pretty good right now.

The drive thru staff hand over your morning saviour and the car quickly fills with the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. You then get a whiff of that perfectly cooked egg, juicy bacon and a slice of cheddar cheese nestled comfortably in a toasty English muffin... mmmmm

STORY TIME "How I almost let my brain ruin everything"

Written by Sandra Bain

 The day has finally arrived. Tomorrow, is the day of my Driving Test. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time now, but for some reason, I have this uncontrollable, gut wrenching feeling in the pit of my stomach. Why am I so nervous? I’ve had a whole year to practice, this should be easy.

I found it really hard to get to sleep, as I was imagining all the potentially bad situations, I could find myself in. Then all the “What If’s” started to emerge…

What if…I fail? What if…I cause an accident? What if…an ambulance comes up behind me? What if…someone runs a red light? What if…I run the red light? What if…I don’t do my parallel park right? What if…the examiner isn’t nice to me? What if…they take me somewhere I don’t know? What if…I don’t understand where they want me to go? What if…I turn left instead of right?

Why do people get so nervous before taking their practical driving test?

Written by Sandra Bain

It’s completely understandable that students get nervous before their big test day. For most students, it’s the biggest day of their lives so far and a day which they will remember for the rest of their lives.

Personally, I think, if you’re not even slightly nervous, then there’s something wrong with you.

But getting TOO nervous can cause a lot of unnecessary stress and anxiety on the day of the test. And it is one of the biggest reasons, why otherwise competent drivers, end up failing their drivers test.

Using Hypnosis to Overcome Driving Test Anxiety

Written by Sandra Bain

Do you want to get an edge in your driving so that you can pass your test in a calm and confident manner? If you do then read on…

Some think Hypnosis is “hocus-pocus, stare into my eyes, you are getting sleepy, now cluck like a chicken” mumbo-jumbo. The truth is, Hypnosis goes a lot deeper than the entertainment you see by stage performers.

I’ve recently written a blog post about Hypnosis, outlining its benefits and even a case study proving it can help train the mind while you’re in a hypnotic trance, or even asleep. Click Here to read more...

What is Hypnosis?

Written by Sandra Bain

Hypnosis is a highly effective and proven technique, which allows you to gain mastery over your own body and the calming of your mind. It uses the hypnotic state, which enables changes in perception and memory and a major increase in response to suggestion.

Hypnotherapy can be performed in person (face to face) or via specifically generated Hypnosis recordings which uses guided relaxation, intense concentration, visualisation and focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness that is sometimes called a trance.

Whilst in this trance-like state, your subconscious mind absorbs the words and suggestions being said during the guided hypnosis session, which ultimately “reprograms” your way of thinking.

HOW ONE COFFEE CAN MAKE YOU RETHINK YOUR VIEWS ON DRIVING LESSONS

Written by Sandra Bain


Its 3pm and its been a loooong day, you’re dying for a coffee. You head off to your favourite coffee shop to get your fancy Grande, non-fat, skinny,  caramel latte with extra whipped cream where you’d pay anywhere from $6.60 upwards. But your budget is a bit low this week and you consider whether or not you should get the fancy coffee or maybe go for a cheaper  version from somewhere else.

Keep Left Unless Overtaking

Written by Sandra Bain

We have all been frustrated one time or another, by someone driving
slow in the right-hand lane. In fact, a lot of drivers get very abusive about this notion.

Unfortunately, not everyone knows the EXACT rules regarding this law.

RULE: On multi-lane roads, if the posted speed limit is 90km/h or more, or if
the road has a ‘keep left unless overtaking’ sign, you must not drive in the right-hand lane unless you are:

Should you buckle up your best friend while driving in the car?

Written by Sandra Bain

If you conducted a survey and asked people “what is the law on restraining dogs while driving in the car?”, you would get a lot of different responses. The fact is, no one really knows. Different states, territories and even countries, have different laws.And Googling the answer just sends you on a wild goose chase…

While here in QLD, it’s not actually ILLEGAL to drive with your dog in the back seat without a restraint on, provided the dog is sitting or lying happily in its spot. BUT… Police are able to issue demerit points and fines if they feel as though the unrestrained animal is causing the driver to be distracted and not be in full control of the vehicle.
