A silent week in a new 2018 HYUNDAI SONATA HYBRID…

“Our new 2018 Sonata Hybrid and Plug-in models add appeal in every area, from exterior to interior design, handling, steering, ride comfort, safety and infotainment,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president of Product, Corporate and Digital Planning at Hyundai Motor America. “When combined with Hyundai’s outstanding value and efficiency, the new Sonata Hybrid and Plug-in are sure to attract even more eco-focused buyers.”

Well… let’s just see about that.

A week in this 2018 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid has been interesting. It’s not a car for A-type people. It’s not aggressive, superfast, extreme or has a vibrant color. It’s not the car for those that want to get noticed.

But… here’s what the Sonata IS. Silent. Comfortable. Secure. Relaxed… and almost meditative.

With a 2.0-liter Nu GDI 4-cylinder motor marriaged to a six-speed automatic transmission and a 38 kW electric motor, the car knows exactly what it is. And that my friends, is CLEAR TRANSPORTATION.

Now before you get your wundies in a bunch, let’s examine what “Clear Transpo” is exactly.

People buy cars for different reasons, but the reason to buy something like this… is to not have to think too much about it. It looks good, super comfy, super-efficient, reliable and fearless. As in, not one will steal it thinking they could get a lot for it or part it out. It’s a STRESS-FREE car.

And in many cases, that’s exactly what people need… and even me. A car that you don’t EVER have to worry about. Take you friends around town and although none of them might say, “hey this is a nice car,” they definitely won’t be complaining. They’ll just focus on where you’re going or the problem they are having with a girl or boy.

Like I said… stress-free. (Forget about the girl or boy issue.)

At a grand total of $35K for a completely stress-less car, this seems like a steal. 193hp, full electric mode, small enough to park anywhere and you could focus completely on your Edible Dog-Leash (EDL) entrepreneurial business. I mean, serious stuff.

The 2018 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is still a winner. And being “Eco-focused” as Mr. O’Brien said above… is the new norm. Maybe that means that the 2019 model should be edible? Note to Hyundai: Make mine Chocolate-flavored.

Nicely done.

The 5 PROVEN HEALTH BENEFITS of Coloring…

Ok, how can you get HEALTHIER by Coloring? Well, I’m glad you asked… and we’ll tell you. So READ ON…

1) The ACT OF COLORING keeps you PRESENT in the moment, and that’s where TRUE HEALTH exists as in a Meditative State.

2) When you color, you use the FOCUS of your mind and the decision-making KNOWLEDGE of picking colors and solving problems. This enhances brain function and REDUCES STRESS.

3) Finishing a COLOR SKETCH brings JOY and eliminates all negative thought, not only to the colorist, but to those whom you give or show the piece to… whether as a physical object or online. Joy and Health co-exists and ENHANCE BRAIN CELL ACTIVITY.

4) Those that color strategically color things that they like. Cars for Car People, Dolphins for those that like SeaLife. And the MINDFULNESS OF COLORING what you LOVE is clinically proven to keep you healthy. (That is, as long as you don’t eat a Chili-Bacon Cheeseburger right afterwards.)

5) Those that color experience the same thing that Artists experience in creating the initial image. A desire to bring Joy to others and themselves. In other words, true HEALTH comes from Doing What You Love and Loving What You Do.
