Traffic is a major cause of stress for a lot of people. The daily grind of getting in and out of work in most cities around the world can be a nightmare. Many people choose to live in small towns just to avoid this stressful journey every day that can really eat into their lives. At the moment house prices in Dublin are again going up so many people are now commuting over an hour into work from surrounding counties but that is probably a topic for another day! Even the image below can cause stress to a lot of people who are in and out of traffic each day!
To get into work people are having to get up at 6.30am and sit in their cars an hour to and an hour from work in the evenings. This causes a lot of stress on top of our already stressful lives. So what is the solution? Well cycling as well as any form of exercise is known to relieve stress. Cycling is not for everyone and does require a level of fitness. But there is a no game in town which we think is really interesting and that is electric scooters. These 2 wheel scooters are powered by an electric motor and they are a great way to commute to work.
Not only will you not be stuck in your car but you will be out in the fresh air which is also proven to help relieve stress. Electric scooters are a really fun way to travel and just as we have encouraged people to cycle for those who are not physically able this is another great way to get out of the car. Even if it is part of the journey. Electric scooters can be folded up and carried with you so you could drive into the suburbs and use the electric scooter to complete your journey or even hop on the train and bring the scooter with you. We just think this is another good way of getting people out of the car which is shown to be one of the biggest causes of stress. According to www.escooterstore.ie they are under €500 so very affordable and they also are eligible for the bike to work scheme.
