If you spend a good deal of time in your car, it’s worth paying that little extra to make everything just that bit more bearable. Quality tailored car mats can make all the difference to the comfort of your journey.
Long car journeys are not enviable, especially if you have to travel a lot for work. People whose work frequently sends them across the country will know that every bit of extra comfort counts. And making your journey more homely takes some of the attention away from the fact that you have to spend hours at a time on unstimulating motorways.
Having the correct posture is very important whilst driving to avoid strain injury and related muscle and spine damage. There is almost twice as much pressure on your back if you sit incorrectly than if you are standing. They key is to adjust your seat so that you are relaxed and there is as little pressure on your back as possible.
A clean car, inside and out, can help decrease stress levels. A less recognised element of a car which can affect your well being on long journeys is the state of the car mats. Car mats harbour bacteria; when you enter your car you bring dirt and water on your shoes, the damp dark conditions in the footwells of your car are perfect for bacteria and mould to breed and multiply. The resultant smell is instantly recognisable in unkempt cars.
Realistically, keeping your car mats completely clean is a time consuming process, but if you invest in car mats made of good quality material cleaning is much easier. It could be as simple as a quick shake and a brush. All weather rubber mats are great for the wetter months to retain the quality of your carpet mats.
Custom and tailored car mats can also improve the look and feel of your car. Matching colour carpet in a soft velour material adds to the homeliness of your car and can detract from the fact that you are in a car at all.
If your car is your second home it is worth maintaining it to a high standard for your own well being. Stock up on your favourite music, maybe a couple of audio books, and keep the interior of your car in good condition. You will soon find the chore substantially more tolerable.
