Sitting with Panic While Driving?


I’m working on sitting with my emotions instead of suppressing them, which has definitely been one of the most challenging aspects of scholars for me (and I love continuing to make progress with it). I’d like some advice on the best way to deal with anxiety/panic in the car, which happens occasionally.

I understand sitting with the feeling of panic if I’m, say, in my living room. That’s very low stakes, and a great opportunity to allow the feeling to vibrate through me instead of trying to suppress it. But what about when I’m driving? I feel like the longer I’m in a state of anxiety as a driver, the more reactive I am and that feels unsafe. Should I still work on it in the car, or is that a place where I should continue to suppress my feelings instead of sitting with the panic?
