How Not To Yell (Or Suppress!) In Times Of Stress... 😫
Sometimes our emotions get the better of us...
Sometimes our emotions get the best of us...
Our partners and children can really push those buttons we didn’t know we had. And before you know it, you're hollering at the top of your lungs.
You’re not alone in doing that, and your feelings of frustration are normal. The good news is that you can change the way you talk to the ones you love the most.
When we're stressed, we heighten the drama and make everything worse.
But when we can calm ourselves, we calm the storm.
Here's how NOT to yell (or suppress!) in times of stress:
Remind yourself that there's no real emergency.
Take a few deep breaths. This moves you back into the present moment, so you won't get hijacked by your big emotions. Now you have the choice of how to react.
Try to catch yourself before you get so angry that you lose control and raise your voice. By stepping away from the conflict for a few moments, you give yourself a chance to reassess which will help you calm down.
It also helps to teach your children about boundaries and how to manage strong emotions in a healthy way.
Anger is a normal feeling we can learn from.
By acknowledging your emotions, from joy and excitement to sadness, anger, jealousy, and frustration, you’re teaching your children that they are all part of our human repertoire.
Talk about how you feel and encourage your children or partner to do the same. It will help them develop a respectful attitude towards themselves and others and form healthy relationships in life.
Give your child or partner a 20-second hug.
Push your pride aside when you begin to feel angry, and choose to love in the moment instead. A 20-second hug has been scientifically shown to reduce blood pressure and heart rate, helping to bring you back to a state of calm.

It’s never too late for a lane change. Insite Mind is the brainchild of one woman who after a decade spinning in the hamster wheel of the accounting world gave it up to live out her heart work. But it didn’t come without challenge and a little nudge from the universe in the form of a book Dealing with Difficult People. Upon opening it Alisa was surprised to find in black and white text “maybe it’s you”. So after several ego deaths and many personal development books along the way Alisa Pettit found her way to coaching. Now a fully fledged positive mindset coach and personal mastery guru Ali’s work helps people find their way through mindset teachings.
