I yelled at my almost-three-year-old last week. I felt terrible. True she has her moments and can be super whiny and annoying but I didn’t have the patience I normally do.
The underlying anxiety from the pandemic, state of political angst (insert…whatever aggravates you daily) and much less patience turns into yelling at my daughter.
We are all taking on a lot right now!
Note for myself and anyone it helps.
1. Pause and breathe for one minute
2. Acknowledge how you feel, build the awareness
3. Choose your path forward with poise
The kick in the pants you need. Sign-up for a better start to your work day.
