How to Avoid Road Rage

Plan Your Drives Thoroughly

A lot of the times, road rage happens because the drivers don't feel in control regarding the situations around them. For that reason, one of the best ways to fight it off is to take charge of the things you can control. For example, you should plan your drives thoroughly. Knowing where you'll go, how you'll get there, and what to do in unforeseen circumstances may help you be a much calmer person behind the wheel. You can also save yourself a lot of stress if you just leave with enough time. If you don't feel pressured to get to your destination, it's less likely you'll rage out. Likewise, if you know traffic is bad, why not take other routes? In some occasions, it's much better to take those less transited streets (even if it takes a bit longer to arrive) in exchange of some peace of mind. Finally, if you know you get annoyed when there's intense heat, avoid the sun. This isn't always possible, but don't go out between 11 am and 5 pm so you don't get hot and bothered.

Control the Environment Inside Your Vehicle

As stated above, if you're feeling like you're losing control when you're driving, focus on the things that you can change. Even if the world around you is falling down (with intense heat, stressed out drivers, and a lot of noise pollution), you should try to create a zen and soothing environment inside of your vehicle. To make that happen, you can start by controlling what you're listening to. Instead of hearing people yell and honk incessantly, play your favorite tunes. Something upbeat or calming can put you in a better mood. Try not to get too distracted, however, as this can be dangerous, too. Next, if you're one of the people that gets annoyed during the hot weather, simply turn your AC on. If you're at a cooler temperature, you may also have a cooler attitude to your situation. Finally, you may want to use some meditation techniques and even breathing exercises if you start to feel angry. These can help you calm your nerves and get rid of negative energy.

Don't Sweat the Little Things

A big part of not falling for road rage is to simply let a few things go. This can be hard, as you may feel personally insulted in some situations. However, it's almost certainly not the case, so don't dwell on those things. For starters, if a driver is going slow or cut you off, it's not the end of the world. Find solutions to the situation, instead of reacting impulsively at them. There will be instances in which you absolutely should honk at someone. Still, this is only if you see them making mistakes, or are about to hit you. Even then, try to not abuse your honk and don't sound it off angrily. In other cases, you won't be the one raging out; you will be the cause of someone else's rage. But, once again, it's important that you let the little things go. If the other driver is having a bad day, that's their problem. Simply don't engage in their behavior (don't even look at them) to avoid a nasty exchange. However, it's important that you learn to recognize when you've made a mistake behind the wheel. Even if their way of communicating it may not be the best, they may be letting you know of something you should correct. Again, correct it without engaging. Once more, you can't control how other people behave or react, but you can control how you behave and react.
