Become a calmer you in you the New Year and in the process create a happier home and become a positive role model for your kids to follow! Let us support you to achieve this goalStep 1: Don’t say or do ANYTHING in anger!
Step 2: Before you say or do anything take a ‘Time Out Breather’ – STOP, PAUSE, and just breathe deeply for 30 seconds. Think about what it is that you want to achieve: ‘I want to remain calm’, ‘I want to feel proud of my reaction’, ‘I want my kids to respect my behaviour and what I am about to say or make a decision on’, ‘I want my kids to listen to me’ etc.
Step 3: Then make a decision on what to say (or not say, sometimes saying nothing is the right answer). Choose which words you want to use, or not use. Stay physically connected to the moment and what you are about to say and do, stay grounded (don’t rush around doing other things, give this moment your full and mindful attention), say what you mean and use only a few words. Remember the old adage less is more. Did you know that only 8% of our communication is words, the rest is tone and physical presence, so whatever you say make it short and simple.
Step 4: Don’t get carried away with your anger, just say what you need to say and stop there!
