It is a million degrees outside, and your boss has asked you to present a big idea to a huge client and the stress couldn’t be higher. Your hands clutch the steering wheel and a car swerves, cutting in front of you. You miss your exit. It is completely unfair; you feel your pulse quicken and your brow creased, who does this driver think they are?! You want to show them that they can’t treat you like this and have an overwhelming urge to speed up and give them a piece of your mind. Stop. Breath. And check out these 4 tips to reduce your road rage and avoid an accident.
4 Reducing Road Rage Tips
- Plan Ahead and Stop the Rush- We live in a stressful go-go-go world and sometimes, with all that going, we are literally rushing through our lives and on the edge of our seats. This may seem okay, as everyone who is anybody is “busy,” but the reality is, busy is not a way to live. Take time to plan your schedule and be realistic in the time that it takes you to get from point A to B for appointments, work, and family time.
- Get your sleep- Have you noticed how a toddler without a nap is an irate, unhappy little person? Guess what, adults can be the same way! If we aren’t getting our sleep, we are literally depriving our body of a basic need, and in turn, you won’t be a happy camper.
- Practice your “OMMM” As much as it may irk us and it may feel better to react to a situation, sometimes taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture can help. Think of your happy place, and take a few deep belly breaths; don’t you feel better already?
- Be Empowered You know what is a big empowering moment? When you don’t let other people, who may be childish, rude, and mean, steal your joy! This is just a moment in time that will pass you by shortly, instead of letting it steal your piece of mind, find your peace of mind.
