[shareaholic app=”follow_buttons” id=”26150071″]

When we bump up against our fellow humans and overreact, it consumes a TON of energy. We need to learn to deal with these upsets more efficiently so we can stay focused on what matters. One of the things that we have to consider as we learn to manage our anger and emotions is how to allow passion and enthusiasm to be alive and well, while at the same time not feel like it’s got to turn to anger and bullying.

In this episode, you will:

  • Learn how to react with intention rather than emotion
  • Understand which triggering experiences create negative reactions
  • Identify the causes of emotional reactions that escalate negative situations
