Do you recognize that feeling, when you’re in the car with somebody and they’re not shifting up gears?
That sound of an engine making too much revs?
Well sometimes I feel the same thing in my body. I don’t know exactly how that goes. Too preoccupied maybe, or stressed? But what I do know it is taking a lot if energy. It is an undefined feeling when I think about it and I don’t like it.
Fortunately, most of the times I’m realizing it and am I able to shift up a gear or even go into overdrive, saving energy and less noise. But it made me wonder. How does it happen and how often are we not aware of it.
The reverse is also true, forgetting to shift down. We stay in a higher gear, but we really are driving very slow. The problem is that when kick the throttle, to speed up again, the engine stutters and there’s the risk of shutting down.
The idea made me realize that it’s good to choose the right gear in everything you do, by being consciously be aware . Sometimes it’s just not worth using to much energy, when you’re stuck in a low gear and trying to go fast. Be aware and shift up.
Or otherwise set in a high gear when there’s no need, just go in overdrive, safe energy or shift down, drive slow, but be able to pick up speed, without the engine shutting down, just be aware, you control the gear shift.
