We’ve all experienced it: somebody cuts in front of us on the highway or tailgates you. It’s hard not to react; it’s frustrating! But before you do something you may then regret, you might want to take a look at these tips on how to handle road rage.
Listen to Music
It might seem silly, but blasting your favorite music instead of blasting your horn might help you. You know you have those songs that you can’t help but sing along to, so compile a list and make it your preventative road rage playlist!
If you plan ahead and allow more time to get to your destination, then you won’t get so angry when someone then delays your trip.
Avoid Eye Contact
If someone cuts you off or is riding your bumper, chances are that they’re not someone that will avoid aggression. Avoid making eye contact with them and don’t play into their games, even if you’re angry.
Talk It Out
It’s okay to talk to yourself sometimes! Say all the things you wish you could say to that person, but to yourself, where they can’t hear you. Then take some deep breaths. You’ve released it!
