1. Stay calm, try and relax.

Take it easy, manage your breathing. Take a deep inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. And take your time with it.

Do things that make you calm, maybe turn on calm and relaxing music while you are in the car. This will help you empty your mind for a while.

2. Change the position a little.

Do not sit upright, and you can sit slightly tilted.

Changing your position also plays a significant part in managing this situation? You are encouraged to sit slightly tilted, as this may help your body relax little.

3. Tighten your backside as much as possible.

Clenching your butt cheeks tenses your rectum, which will help you hold the waste within.

This should help you deal with such a stressful situation.

4. Avoid a lot of movements.

If your stomach hurts, it is hard to sit still and think about going to the restroom.

Try not to move around too much. Even if the car does not move much, it might help you stay calm and focused.

5. Try to get your mind off of it by listening to music, thinking about something else, enjoy the scenery.

At this time, your mind may be focused on the pain you are experiencing. However, you should attempt to gradually divert your attention by listening to music. Think about other things and observe scene outside.
