A helpful video that emphasizes the functionality of meditation practice involving a real-life scenario of keeping your cool despite getting stuck in traffic.

We've all been there. Running late - on the way to the airport, rushing to pick up the kids, or trying to get to that meeting on time. But the inevitable happens: bumper to bumper traffic! ???? What do you do? Take a breath with Sharon Salzberg and learn how to bring your meditation practice off the mat and onto the highway.

This is the fourth video in Sharon’s STREET LOVINGKINDNESS VIDEO SERIES in which she re-imagines everyday moments of life to help us connect with ourselves and the pulse of humanity all around us. Who knows... next time you might just choose the drive the route with the most traffic!
