Gauge upcoming high volatility

Hello friends,

I am relatively new to options trading - slowing eating like pigeon by doing some writings. For but obvious reasons, do not intend to do the other like an elephant, so, was wondering if any experienced good soul out of you would kindly explain any technique or indicator using which I could gauge an upcoming high volatility situation for an underlying beforehand.

So far I have been comparing Implied Volatility w.r.t. the underlying’s Historical Volatility. The problem I am facing is that my inner self wants to eat like an elephant and do the rest like a pigeon. So, was wondering if I could judge these opportune high volatility situations beforehand for stocks and then apply non-directional strategies, with less capital could make more.

Your two cents please. Many thanks!
