Health Tip: Avoid Emotional Driving

(HealthDay News) -- Your emotions can hinder your ability to drive safely, so you should keep them in check while you're behind the wheel.

The Department of Motor Vehicles offers these suggestions:

  • If you feel angry, upset or annoyed, pull off the road and take a break.
  • Take a few deep breaths.
  • If you are anxious, worried or depressed about something, try to think of other things until you reach your destination.
  • Listen to music.
  • Allow yourself extra time so you don't feel rushed, hurried or impatient.
