By Sheridan Tax & Bookkeeping

Pick up any newspaper or magazine and chances are you will read about rage of one kind or another – air rage, car rage and just plain rage. and people simply Here are five suggestions for keeping your cool on and off the road.

1. Modify your lifestyle to the point where you can once again relax and enjoy a leisurely breakfast of slowly cooked oatmeal with all the trimmings. Food has become an inconvenience. It is just something to get over with.”

2. Manage anger when you feel it starting. Managing anger does not mean letting it fester inside or releasing it with a vengeance.  It involves recognizing that we are angry or upset and dealing with our feelings sensibly. 

3. When you feel yourself getting angry or upset, talk it out.  Initially this must be with yourself, since you’re probably the only one there when anger strikes.   

4. Accept the fact that no person can make you angry, or happy or sad. You are the only one who has the power to form an emotion within yourself. 

5. Not expressing anger accounts for 80 percent of all cases of depression. People who put a lid on their anger allow it to build up within them like steam in a pressure cooker.

At a time when angry drivers cause one out of three car accidents, it’s essential that we manage our anger as effectively as we manage our time.
