Many people use this time to place a renewed focus on improving their health and well-being. Whether it's exercise, a new diet, meditation or listening to music, there are many unique ways to focus on enhancing happiness and comfort.

With a myriad of different methods to choose from, you might not expect spending more time in your car to be one of them. But as the number of ways to focus on well-being increases, so does the number of people who are turning their vehicles into a peaceful retreat for reflection and focus.
