Stay Alert Behind the Wheel

Lack of sleep is a major cause of car accidents........If staying off the road when you're tired is unavoidable.......suck a mint,the scents of peppermint and cinnamon boost alertness while cutting fatigue in drivers....crank the stereo, fast music with high frequency sounds (like high voices, violins, and saxophones) will help keep you sharp.."Brain waves, heart rate and breath will speed up to match the rhythm" Grab a cup of coffee, coffee is more effective than taking a power nap.
