Enhanced Calm

Enhanced Calm

I'm no Zen tree hugger type (not that there is anything wrong with that) but I noticed my mood just mellow on a drive back to my house yesterday. The P85 is a blast to amp up and toss around; that is really no surprise. What was a surprise for me is that it is a wonderful place to relax as well. Although I've not experienced it myself, it sounds like that quite cool down period at the end of a Yoga session that my wife tells me about.

Anyone else found this to be the case?

Same here. For instance, I find that having to stop for a red traffic light has become an opportunity to relax in a comfortable and silent place (minus the music of course). I no longer curse at stop and go traffic. My blood pressure is taking a nose dive (I think...)

Someone said I have the "Tesla Glow" since I got mine.

Yes, I got my car last Thursday, and am still waiting on the electrician to get the 220 plug set up. It's been charging from a 110 in the barn. The car came only half charged, and being I was only getting 3 miles an hour over night (and then having to drive it 26 miles round trip to work) I didn't feel like I could really run with it. So...on Easter Sunday, I figured that I would charge it at a ChargePoint station in town. I had a lot of grading to do, so, instead of sitting inside, I loaded up the car with my schoolwork, drove to the charging station, and sat and graded for the four and a half hours that it took to charge. It was totally delightful! I had soft music playing and the driver's seat pushed back with the seat heater going. I slipped off my shoes and got to work. I was more productive than I've ever been in the house. In warmer weather, I can easily see myself bringing my grading with me, only not running the seat heaters but, instead, having the pano roof open to let in the sunshine.
I think that that says volumes about the comfort of the seats: to be able to sit for 4 and 1/2 hours anywhere is remarkable. Normally, I would have gotten out and walked around a bit, but I really did use the whole time to grade...ahh, the life of a teacher!

+1 jemartin.

Traffic lights used to mean switching off the engine, then glancing every now and then at the opposite light status to know when to turn the infernal combustion engine back on!

Traffic jams allow additional enjoyable listening to Slacker radio. Thanks to the person who reminded us to sign up for Tunein featuring radio stations from around the world. After 6,000 miles, still haven't needed XM Satellite Radio!

I find myself smiling on my walks to the car. When the door closes behind me and that 17" display lights up the feeling must be paramount to how my dog feels upon entering its safe place.
