Trains : great for your mental health

Granted, some of you may disagree with me outright. Those of you who travel regularly on trains probably experience excruciatingly irritating delays which play havoc with your mental health. I don’t travel regularly on trains but I am on one today, to Gloucester from Cam & Dursley and back, all within 1hr50. My journey has been calm, hassle free, and restful.
I forgot my book and didn’t want to waste time on my phone so I gazed at passing scenery with slow-brain-wave peace at the sodden green and brown fields, the end of a rainbow poking out beneath multi-toned grey sky, and a distant hazy sunlit hill range.
My inner calm was high.
It cost me £5.70. It was quicker than going by car and I avoided car park fees. I will do this more often when I can. This is obviously not a revolutionary insight but, for me, a little used method of relaxation.
Watching the world go by, letting thoughts drift past, is such a restful way to spend time. Getting to where you want to be in good time is also a bonus.
As well as doing my tiny bit towards planet protection I was, in the words of Kung Fu Panda, finding my inner peace.
