Anger Management

Saturday, August 04, 2012

Sure, it's tempting to blow up at the pal who kept you waiting...again. But unless you're a Real Housewife desperate for screen time, it's far healthier to learn how to dial down your fury.

Give yourself a time-out by following the four R's.

RECOGNIZE you're losing control.
RETREAT before you go over the top.
RELAX by taking a walk or reading, then
RETURN to the situation when you're ready to deal productively.

These steps engage the parasympathetic nervous system, which turns off the fight-or-flight response, so you can think more clearly - and avoid losing a friend over something petty.

    Very good. Getting under control before you get under someone else skin is much better for everyone involved.

Friday Frolic!

Friday, August 03, 2012

Two aliens in a spaceship were hovering over a golf course, watching a man play alone. They had never seen golf before but they surmised it was some kind of game. They watched with interest as he messed up his tee shot, hit the ball into the woods, then into the sand, the rough, and eventually, after a number of shots, up onto the green. As the man putted and the ball disappeared down the hole, one alien turned to the other and said, “Boy, now he’s in trouble!”

A kitten was sure it could win a race against a cheetah. She’d soon realize that was im-paws-able.

The Mother Superior was talking about the rising crime rate with one of her nuns. “Sister,” she said, “what would you do if you were accosted by a man?”

“I would lift my habit,” the nun replied.

Shocked, the Mother Superior said, “Then what would you do?!”

“I would tell him to drop his pants,” said the nun.

“And why would you do that?” the Mother Superior demanded.

“Because I can run faster with my habit up than he could with his pants down!”

How can you tell when Belugas are sad?

They really wail.
---------------------------------
• What activities make you feel calmer and more serene? Taking a shower, playing with your dog?

• What’s your favorite form of exercise?

• What’s something you could stop doing or start doing or do differently that would boost your happiness?
------------------------------
And an oldie, but a goodie:

Through the black night, a navy captain saw a light dead ahead, on collision course with his ship. He sent an urgent signal: “Change your course 12 degrees west!” The light didn’t move, so the captain sent an angry signal: “I’m a navy captain. Change your course, sir!”

A signal came back: “I’m a seaman, second class. Change your course, sir!”

The captain was furious: “I’m a battleship—I’m not changing course!”

The reply came back: “And I’m a lighthouse!”
