DRIVING ANXIETY AS A MOM.
Disclosure: I am part of the Garmin Influencer Program and I receive special perks as part of my affiliation with this group. The opinions on this blog are my own.
Ever since King was born I get some anxiety When we drive places. It is something that really stresses me out because, first off, I am the worst at directions. I am constantly getting lost, my phone is always dropping map signals or someone is calling me exactly when I am supposed to be turning down some road I have never heard of, and second, I can’t be in the back with King all the time to watch him. My anxiety got a lot worse when he had such bad reflux as a baby and would choke on his reflux. I was constantly pulling over and checking on him because I swear those little mirrors you can buy never let you see what you really need to see.
I have searched and searched for a product that will ease my anxiety, help me to not be so lost all the time, and let me see my baby. I knew I was asking for a lot, but I was still really wishing and hoping that there was something out there that would change my life. (I swear that being a pediatric nurse I know too much about what can happen and so I always assume the worst case scenario and Zach is always so frustrated with me and what crazy thing I am thinking is happening.)
Babes, the solution, are you ready for this, the Garmin Drive. I totally felt like King’s shirt and thought “Where have you been all my life”. This is the most amazing map system and is so much more reliable than your phone. Using your phone for one more thing when you already use it for social media, phone calls, texting, notifications are pouring in, especially when you are driving is so scary. Garmin Drive will change your life. It has a 5.0-inch dual-orientation display so it is easy to see while you are driving. It will notify you of upcoming curves, sharp turns, speed changes, school zones, etc. My phone for sure doesn’t do that. I love that using it really helps me to feel like I am on top of my game. We all know like I said above that I am the worst with directions, Garmin will give you Real Directions™ that will use landmarks and traffic lights. This makes driving as an anxious person with no common sense of direction so much easier. They also have a Baby Cam that is a camera that goes in the backseat by your baby and will show you how they are. It pairs so easily with a Garmin Personal Device. My dreams have come true! I can’t wait to share more about the Baby Cam with you in a later post.
If you are an anxious or worried momma, look into it. It will decrease your stress so much, get you where you need to be, and let you see your baby all the time. That babes, is a win-win situation!
