How to Avoid Road Rage

Plan Out Your Drives Effectively

If you truly want to stay as far away from road rage as possible, you will have to start getting ready for it since before you walk out of your door. This is because planning for your day can allow you to have a calmer and happier attitude over all. For example, you should leave with enough time to make it to your destination to avoid feeling rushed. Likewise, you should plan which route you will take to get there in an effective and stress-free manner. Moreover, now that summer is here, if you know that the heat makes you angry, avoid going out when the sun is harshest (whenever possible, of course). Taking these simple steps can help you become a much gentler, calmer, and safer driver.

Keep a Calm Environment

Everyone around you may be falling apart. Nonetheless, if you are in a zen space, it won't affect you in the least. You control the environment inside your vehicle, meaning that you can tweak it to your liking to create a soothing and calming place. To keep a calm environment inside your vehicle, you can start by choosing music that makes you happy. When you're dancing around to a upbeat tune, or enjoying relaxation time with classical music, no amount of external road rage will be able to reach you. As stated above, the intense heat can also be to blame for the excessive anger drivers feel during the summer months. For that reason, it's recommended that you adjust the temperature inside your vehicle to keep it cooler, so your mood can be cooler, too.

Let the Little Things Go

When you're already stressed out and more prone to engage in road rage, the littlest things can send you over the edge. For example, the simple honking of a horn to give you a warning can become a declaration of war. If someone cuts you off in line, it's like they've insulted your whole family. Still, before you react aggressively towards these situations, you should take a step back. Realize that, most of the time, these are smaller incidents that don't actually need any of your attention and energy. In the end, if you learn to let the little things go and not dwell on them (whether it's on the road or in other areas of your life), you'll be a much happier person for it.

Take the High Road

Tied to the point above, if you notice that someone else has gotten mad at you, don't dwell on it, either. It can be incredibly hard at first, especially if they're honking and yelling obscenities, but don't fall for their taunts and don't engage them. Instead, try your best to take the high road. Taking the high road entails not making eye contact with raged drivers, not honking your horn unless strictly necessary, and not yelling or telling other people off. Remember that, in the end, you cannot control how other people react to a situation. However, you can control how you react. In that case, getting angry is entirely up to you. Moreover, it's likely you won't make people understand your perspective if you're being rude to them, so why even do it?

Try Relaxation Exercises

Last but not least, you should try relaxation exercises. Being able to channel your energy elsewhere, will allow you to avoid  getting stressed by situations that can lead to you raging at others on the road. While you're in your vehicle, you can try breathing exercises. Being mindful of your breathing rhythm, as well as controlling when you inhale and exhale can be helpful in bringing your rage feelings down. It's even recommended that you try yoga and meditation during your day-to-day life, so you can lead a more relaxed lifestyle overall. When you're a happy, centered, relaxed person, you will be less likely to engage in road rage.
