I have my setting at sedentary so I'm curious if it's legit at all to add driving when it's a significant part of a day.

I know it takes a great deal of concentration and can leave one mentally tired. I also know that the brain uses 25% of our daily energy, but I don't know whether energy use fluctuates based on how hard one is using their brain or whether brain energy consumption is just constant.
