I gave myself a timeout last night! We were driving in the crazy snow storm
(stressor), my husband said something that upset me (trigger) and I had to take a time out before I blew up! Even though we were in the car, I simply said, 'I need a minute' and turned to watch the lovely snow covered trees and breath
Time outs are one of the most effective anger management techniques for me.
Even when I don't have the space to move away from the trigger, I've found ways to take my time out before I act out of anger.
