Anger management during the holidays

Posted on: November 24, 2007

Anger management is a class that teaches stress management, communcation skills, emotional intelligence and anger management. Stress levels hit an all time high at this time of the year and anger is often not to far behind. The demands of work, from family members, the strain on finances and the constant flurry of decision making can cause anger to get out of control. Although one cannot change the demands of the season, one can learn valuable skills that will help reduce the conflict. Here are a few tips

  • Manage your time well
  • Set financial goals
  • Have an open discussion with your family about where the holidays will be spent
  • Be willing to compromise
  • Be aware that long shopping trips can be exhausting and may add to irritability and arguments
  • Don’t take yourself too seriously
  • Designate a shopping day for the kids and one for the adults of the family
  • Shop online
  • Buy gift certificates–this will save you a lot of time
  • Don’t forget to get a pet sitter well in advance of your trips

Happy holidays from Todd’s Anger management Solutions
