Rich Habits Lesson of the Day

Uncontrolled anger is responsible for many poor decisions and consequences. Some of those decisions and consequences put people behind bars, cause a loss of employment, destroy relationships, hurt families and jeopardize your health and safety. Controlling anger requires that you make a habit of doing three things: THINK, EVALUATE AND REACT.

Thinking forces you to use your mind and not your emotions. Evaluate applies mental logic to buy you time to process the situation. React is the last thing you do after carefully considering and thinking through the event causing the anger. You will notice that reacting is the last thing you do in this anger management process. This actually reverses the knee-jerk process most apply to anger. It takes emotion out of the equation and replaces it with logic. This process reverses the order and puts the brain in charge of dealing with anger and not emotions.
