Margin Time


The first and foremost thing we can do is to keep a proper margin to reach on time. There are many consequences we have to face if we reach late at work which includes indiscipline, a humiliation in front of others, boss angriness, less productivity, mistakes and many more. Thought of these consequences increases stress due to which each and every situation or small actions make us angry and we react abnormally. To avoid this, we should have margin time in which various other factors like the malfunctioning of car, tire puncture, route diversion, etc can be managed and we reach on time.

Actions of other car drivers


If by chance you get angry and the driver of the nearby car is abusing you or making some actions which increase your temper, it’s better to ignore them and keep yourself calm. In case, it is due to your mistake, we should say “Sorry” very politely and move forward without engaging our self into a fight. You must be aware that “sorry” and “Thank You” are the magical words that can help control any odd situation. We must use these words frequently in our daily lives.

Do Not Honk


This is one of the main causes of road rage. Sometimes we continuously honk a car ahead of us either in a hurry or car speed is very less compared to our car. It leads to anger in the driver ahead of us and results in a fighting situation. Please understand the driver ahead we might be driving slow due to traffic in front of him or he might be a learner. In the past, we also have gone through these situations and it really feels bad when somebody honks at us continuously and we get irritated in that situation. Similarly, the other person will get irritated and feel bad due to this. It’s better to have patience and overtake instead of honking continuously. 


4. Breathe and drink water
