How to Reduce Stress While Driving | Music & Audiobooks

Car Stereo City

Driving can be stressful. In fact, according to a 2016 study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, nearly 80 percent of drivers on the road have expressed some kind of significant anger or aggression while driving in the past year. The last thing you want is to let road rage cause you to feel anxious and agitated, which is why stress management while driving is so important. There are various different commuting tips for driving stress relief, but in our experience music, audiobooks, and calling a loved one are some of the best ways to be at ease behind the wheel. 

At Car Stereo City, we specialize in installing high-quality car stereo systems that allow you to easily listen to your favorite music and audiobooks, making your driving experience more calm and serene. If you are interested in learning more about how to reduce stress while driving or how to upgrade your car stereo system, contact Car Stereo City by calling (858) 277-1823.

High-Quality Car Audio for Music

Listening to your favorite music while driving is a must. However, the last thing you want is for listening to music to cause you even more stress. If you do not have a high-quality car stereo, then listening to music can be a frustrating experience. You may find that your music does not sound right, or you get static or feedback whenever you try to turn the volume up. That is enough to get anyone frustrated. Optimize your driving experience with an awesome car audio system that can give you crystal clear sound and is easy to use. 

Stream Music With Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

On top of sound quality, you also want to be able to listen to all of your favorite songs. That means you need Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow you to flawlessly integrate your smartphone with your car stereo, giving you access to the nearly endless array of music available on your chosen music streaming service. Whether you use Spotify, Tidal, Apple Music, or a different streaming platform, you now have access to your entire music library while you are driving. That way, you can avoid getting frustrated by having to listen to the same album for the 500th time.


Audiobooks have a strong calming effect. Getting lost in a story while driving is the perfect way to make your commute fly by, as you will be at your destination before you know it. Audiobooks allow you to stay productive while behind the wheel, tackling a book that you have been meaning to read while you are stuck in traffic. Apple CarPlay or Android Auto gives you easy access to a variety of different audiobook libraries, making listening to a new book while driving simple, easy, and stress-free.

Phone Calls That Easily Integrate With Apple CarPlay or Android Auto

If you get a call from a friend or loved one while driving, the last thing you want is for it to cause you more stress. However, with California laws banning drivers from talking on the phone, seeing a call come in can cause you to feel panicked. Many people are forced to pull over or ignore the call. Apple CarPlay or Android Auto makes accepting a phone call while driving a piece of cake, as the system directly hooks your smartphone up to your car speaker system. That way, the next time you get a phone call on the road, it will be a welcome break from traffic instead of a needless distraction. Also, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make it simple to make a phone call while driving, using voice commands to make phone calls. Now, whenever you are stressed while driving, just command your Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to call someone you can vent to, and you will feel the stress melt away.
