7 Legitimate Reasons to Stop Owning A Car

Sometimes you may feel like you can’t live without your car.

In fact, you can’t even remember a moment in your life not ever having one. Like television and the internet, cars are ingrained with the modern human’s existence.

They fill up our highways; take up spaces in our properties, and they’ve populate our media from commercials, movies, to animated films.

However, with the surging prices of petrol and the increase of car values – more and more people are appreciating the freedom of a car-free life.

 

7 Legitimate Reasons to Stop Owning A Car

Cars are pretty useful, there’s no doubt about that. And they are needed by many people and businesses for transferring goods, deliveries, and moving families from one state to another.

Some places are even impossible to get by without a car because everything is miles away from each other. BUT we have already reached a point where heavy automotive use has resulted to negative effects in our society.

“We’re reaching a state of crisis when it comes to gridlock and ever-thickening CONGESTION’S”

…says Taras Grecoe author of the book Straphanger: Saving Our Cities and Ourselves from the Automobile. The world is not growing any bigger.

Many cities all over the world are realizing this and are currently developing new ways for transportation so people can break free from their dependence to private automobiles. Is the world ready for a car-less future?

Here are 7 reasons that may convince you:

 

1. Cars Are Incredibly Costly

Owning a car is a big expense. You’ll have to pay for gas, parking, and ridiculously high insurance payments.

I’m not even mentioning garage space, tires, and monthly repairs. According to AAA’s 2015 Your Driving Costs study, the average annual cost to own and maintain a car is around $8,698.

That’s more or less equal to 57 cents for each mile and around $713 per month to cover costs of maintaining a car. Compared to taking the bus or any other public transit, which usually works to just about $98 a month, cars are expensive to own.

 

2. We’re Running Out of Spaces to Park Them

There are over 1.2 billion cars in the world today. Its rapidly growing in emerging markets such as China, and of course the US. This has caused a lot of unforeseen problems, one of which is in parking.

In the US alone, car parks take up approximately around 8,959 sq. km according to Eran Ben-Joseph, landscape architecture and planning professor at MIT. That’s about the size of Jamaica or Puerto Rico.

Parking problems has not only caused frustration among drivers. In some places many front gardens are converted to driveways. Streets are clogged up with parked cars, and properties are converted to extra parking space.

A study has found that Newbury will run out of car parking spaces in the next 10 years. Hospitals in Cumbria are facing the same problem. Britain, with now more than 28 million cars is experiencing shortage in parking places.

If people didn’t own many cars, we wouldn’t have too many problems in parking.

 

3. They Are Bad For Our Health & the Environment

Many people around the world live in areas with poor air quality caused by pollution from automobiles. Running your vehicle involves combustion of fossil fuel which emits plenty of harmful gasses that affect our environment.

If more than half of the world’s air pollution is caused by automobiles, there will certainly a big difference if many people would start reducing their car usage.

Similarly, frequent driving can also be bad for our health.

A new research by the Mexican National Ecology Institute found that car drivers were more exposed to smog compared to public transport passengers. Driving is also linked with various health issues including obesity, stress, insomnia, and heart disease.

 

4. Ride sharing is more cost-efficient.

Ridesharing companies like Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar work to make commutes trips easy and stress-free. If you’ve got yourself a car in a ride sharing service you won’t have to drive, spend hours looking for parking space. Plus you’ll only have to spend money when you need a ride.

In china, car-sharing is becoming to take hold in many major cities including Beijing and Hangzhou. Car sharing is simply one of china’s transport demand management strategies to control their ever-growing problem of air pollution and traffic congestion.

Car sharing is such a great mobility innovation because it reduces the number of automobiles in the city, all while meeting people’s demand for personal mobility.

 

5. These Car-Alternatives Are Making the World a Better & Safer Place

Cars are not the only vehicles that can get you around the city.

Bicycles can get you through traffic and don’t emit any harmful gasses. Taking the bus or subway is cheaper and can save you more than $500 a month. Plus you’ll meet more people and have a more relaxed journey to your destination.

If you live in the city. Everything is just a walk away and you may not need a car. Besides, walking will get you your much needed exercise, and burn all those calories you’ve been having in excess.

Driving makes you disconnected from the world. You become a mere observer.

You don’t really feel like part of the scenery until you walk and hear people having conversations, smell the delicious fresh baked bread in the bakery every morning, or see all the little children playing across the street.

 

6. You Can Sell Your Car to Travel

Do you know how much your car is worth?

When looking to fund travel adventures, most people sell their old belongings that may not be of use to them anymore. Cars for example, can be sold for good price if they are upgraded and tweaked for better use.

There are different ways to sell your car but most car agent’s look at the following factors to determine your car’s value: age, model, and condition.

 

7. We May Not Need Cars in the Future

Researchers believe we’ve reached peak car, “the point at which traffic growth stops, and potentially even falls on a per capita basis”.

This could mean the start of “carpocalyspe” – where owning a car would be a lot like owning a horse. Where technology will destroy the need to own one. And if you look closely, it’s already happening.

Everything can be done remotely, from groceries, working, and catching up with your old friend.

Supermarkets, theaters, and schools are simply a 15 minute walk away in most cities, and you don’t need to drive to get where you want to be. For decades people relied on cars to get from one place to another.

However, now with the improvements in transportation along with digital revolution, our world may be going to need them less and less.

    I no longer own a car, and I’ve become an authority on the local bus system. I retired early because of COPD and was a teacher. My main volunteer activities are with the transportation committee of ETHNN, a local non-profit, and I’ve organized bus trips with lunch. I’ve written how-to type articles concerning the transit on my WordPress site. Last week, I attended the a transportation conference for the disabled in Austin! My Cigna rep nominated me as a Consumer Advocate in Transportation. I really don’t miss driving bully “frenemies” around town!

Lunchtime Life Hacks: How to Improve Your Life In 1 Hour

Published

on

Lunchtime Life Hacks - How to Improve Your Life in 1 Hour

For most of us, the non-eating portion of our lunch hour typically consists of browsing through forums and news sites, making small talk with colleagues or staring at our phone.

In truth, all that time squandered adds up. What could you do to improve your life and emotional well-being if you devoted just one hour a day to it?

 

How to Improve Your Life In 1 Hour

Here are just a few of the most brilliant ways you can improve your life in one hour, and take advantage of the lunchtime break.

 

1. Meditate

From Paul McCartney to Oprah Winfrey, some of the most successful names in the showbiz industry swear by meditation for its stress-reducing and levelling effect. Best of all, it can take very little time to do.

Here’s how you can fit it into your workday:

If you’re lucky enough to have your own office, close the door or find a quiet place such as the park or an unused rec room. From a seated position – ideally, on the floor with your legs crossed – rest your arms on your knees and keep a straight back.

Close your eyes and begin to focus on your breathing by taking a big breath in through your nose, slowly pulling the air upwards from the abdomen for as long as you can.

Then, release the breath through your mouth in a slow, controlled way, until you have completely emptied the air out of your lungs. Repeat for 5-10 minutes. The goal of this focus on the breath is to distract your mind from stressful thoughts and worries bouncing around in your head- by the time you finish the exercise, you should feel able to think more clearly.

 

2. Ignore Your Social Media Feeds

In defence of squandered hours, Oscar Wilde once said:

“Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”

While you might normally use your lunch hour to glance through news stories, Instagram, Facebook feeds and group chats, consider putting a lunchtime ban on mindless scrolling.

Instead of glazing over at your phone screen every day, mix things up by finding a way to engage with the environment around you: consider starting a conversation with someone new, draw something or start reading a new book.

You’ll be much more aware of what happened in your lunch hour rather than merely letting the time slip past uneventfully.

 

3. Start A Project or Blog

If you’re feeling somewhat proactive, consider starting a blog project.

Blogging is a relatively low-maintenance pastime which as well as giving you a place to open up, can increase confidence and help you achieve goals- particularly if you are blogging about a personal journey such as parenthood, weight loss or body-building.

Treat yourself to a personalized domain name; there are plenty to choose from, they’re cheap to run, and give your blog more integrity and a sense of ownership. Once you’ve started, enjoy exchanging ideas and inspiration with a like-minded online community that will spur you on in pursuit of your goals.

 

4. Reach Out to Someone

We always assume we’ll have tomorrow to do what we could have done today, and making the time to catch up with someone or reply to an email is usually one of these tasks.

If you have just one hour, phoning a family member, messaging an old friend – or even making peace with an ex – can do wonders for your mental well-being.

A familiar voice will push those work-related anxieties to the back of your mind by reminding you about what really matters in life, so pick up the phone and prepare to feel a weight lifted off.

 

5. Take A Bite Out of a Big Task

The question is, “How do you eat an elephant in one go?”

You don’t. The answer of course, is to approach the task in stages.

Begin something you’ve been putting off with the expectation that you are not going to finish it. This mindset immediately takes the pressure off and allows you to think pragmatically about what your first moves will be.

Chances are, if you dedicate yourself to a project or task for just one hour, you will get in to it enough to keep going once things get underway and achieve a lot more than you thought you would. Wouldn’t that be a satisfying achievement for one little lunch hour?

 

6. Make A Worthwhile Purchase

Aside from ordering a lumbar support cushion from Amazon, booking a mini break or a holiday could be the smartest purchase you ever made. Travel is good for the soul, so instead of just thinking about it, actually commit yourself to that trip of a lifetime.

Whether travelling alone or with a friend/partner – the more spur of the moment, the better!

Browsing through a website such as holidaypirates.com can be a solid starting point – they independently source and report on budget breaks for people who have no specific agenda on when or where they want to go- a good place for inspiration if you’re not sure where to start.

 

7. Revamp your Résumé

Even if you’re not job hunting, taking an hour to update your CV and Linked In accounts is a smart move throughout your professional career to ensure you’re not a position of playing catch up later on.

Updating your résumé forces you to take stock of your core skills and abilities, which can bolster confidence and highlight the areas where you may need to expand your know-how or undertake additional training in order to be proficient in the necessary skills which will land you that dream job.

 

Review your To-Do

Lists are a great way to help you focus on the things needing urgently addresses in your life, but to avoid getting overwhelmed by a list of To-Dos and ‘should have done’s’, by taking stock of your week past and using this a the basis for reasonable objectives for the week ahead.

Secure the likelihood of achieving these targets by syncing your To-Do goals with your phone and computer calendars, or invest in a task management app to really harness your inner planning powerhouse.
