1. reduce caffeine
Coffee contains the drug caffeine, which over stimulates the central nervous system and your brain resulting in the body producing more adrenalin. This stimulates the adrenal glands and turns on the 'fight or flight response in your nervous system, so drink it in moderation.

2. rehydrate
Water is essential for your health - about 60% of your body is water. If you're dehydrated you'll likely suffer from headaches, tiredness, dizziness, muscle weakness and so on. Water helps your body detoxify and drinking more water will improve your brain function.

3. take a walk
Recent clinical studies have discovered that the power of depression is negated by the effect of exercise. Before you intend driving your car, take some time out to stop what your doing andgo for a brisk walk. Not only will the exercise help, giving your brain a break will help you to relax.

So what is the Fear of Driving?

A fear of driving is called "hodophobia" and is commonly referred to as a "conditioned response". Each time you head out for a drive and quite often even when you are just thinking about it, your subconscious mind starts to dredge up what transpired the last time you went driving and especially, how you reacted. If your reaction was one of fear, it will have left a very powerful emotional impression in your mind which in turn makes it very easy for you to recall.

Your subconscious mind mistakenly connects that reaction of fear with driving motor vehicles and assumes that on this occasion as well, you are in a hazardous situation and that you are in danger, so to protect you it will activate the ‘fight or flight’ response. In most cases with the fear of driving you just want to get as far away as possible from driving as you can, or ‘flight’.
