Anger management is the first step on the journey.
1. Foster your own unique talents. Enhance what you can do and love to do!
2.Understand that increasing positive feelings will help you handle difficult situations. Look around you for all the little and big things you can appreciate.
3. Take small steps. Do small things you enjoy. Take a small step each day to ensure you have a daily moment of joy.
4. Embrace humor and silliness. Laugh!!
5. Nurture relationships. People/ animals/ nature….they can all add to your sense of positivity, feelings of belonging and enjoyment of life.
6. Be giving and engage in random acts of kindness. Pay it forward as well as back.
7. Express gratitude and appreciation. To people, to yourself, to the world – even small acts can make a difference.
8. Be optimistic. This doesn’t mean blind , unrealistic optimism. Have faith in your ability to manage change and difficult circumstances. Prepare yourself for things going wrong, so you have a back up plan, and be aware that it may not go entirely perfectly either. That’s okay!
I decided to thoroughly review this book because it seems to me that anger is quite a serious social problem. I detest the feeling of horrible out of control anger, and struggle to see or hear it too. I hope this series of articles will be of help to you and that if you need more detail, you will get the book to read.
