Sleeping in cars is actually a thing. People tend to rest inside of them if they don’t want to crash at someone else’s house. It’s undoubtedly more comfortable than a couch or the floor.
You can lower the seats and make yourself comfy in no time. It’s so easy to make your car into bed, so why not do it? And resting inside your vehicle isn’t solely restricted to nighttime. You can take a relaxing nap anytime you feel like it.
When you’re filled with stress, running around the house, not knowing what to do, just enter your car. Go inside, close the windows, keep the windshield wipers off, close your eyes, and try to nap.
Just like in the good old days, taking your partner or date to a drive-through cinema is still popular. It’s all the rage with the new-wave of hipsters, trying to emulate those old-school Americana tropes like vinyl and checkered shirts. Nonetheless, it’s a cool way to spend your night.
In a sea of other cars and people, you and your co-driver can enjoy an old classic the way people did back in the day. Some popcorn, a soda or two, and you are all set for the big silver screen. Moreover, it’s a perfect way to get down on someone. (wink-wink)

Of course, there always needs to be a sober person there to drive you home. Safe driving is essential, so don’t hammer yourself and sit in front of the steering wheel. Place some cup holders inside, choose your poison, and have some fun.
Driving around in big cities with all the traffic is one of the most frustrating things you could experience. The packed boulevards and small streets are what nightmares for drivers consist of.
But what if we told you that your car doesn’t need to be an object associated with rush hour? Yes, your car can be your yoga palace. After all, driving tips are overrated if they don’t mention something to help relieve you from traffic stress.
Like taking a nap, going inside your car is a perfect place to find peace. By shutting the car door, disregarding the speed limits and traffic signs, you’ll be able to fully commit yourself to meditation and other stress-relieving practices.
