I’m not sure if I’m an impatient person or if everyone is moving on astronaut speed, but I’ve realized that I really don’t have alot of patience! The “ah ha” moment came when I almost had an altercation with someone because their car was blocking me in. So much could have come from that scene if I would have allowed my impatience lead me!
If you have a short fuse like me, let’s ALL consider these tips on how to keep our cool when it gets alittle HOT!
1. Train your mind to stay under control by adopting methods like meditation and yoga. Get involved in activities that teach you how to avoid losing your temper.
2. Avoid situations where you might be tempted to lose your temper. If you find yourself in such a situation try to leave that place as soon as possible.
3. Practice accepting differences of opinions and ideas by playing them in your mind and thinking through the different outcomes. Also try to expect shortcomings in people and in that way, you are not shocked or upset when the shortcomings occur.
4. Close your eyes, and count up to hundred before speaking. Deliberately keep quiet when confronted with a situation that would normally make you angry.
