So, I have not had anytime today to work on today's NAWLS Small Bite, but I will still share what it is.
Spend anger wisely
One of the hardest emotions to master is anger. Handled unwisely, it can be costly. Whether your anger isjustifed or not, wallowing in it is a luxury you cannot afford. Anger can lead to self-destructive behaviour, which can undermine your WLS success. When you feel anger, allow yourself a private moment to think things through. What will be the consequences? Will you alienate a friend who has been supportive? Will you affect your position at work? Will your anger cause you to overeat?
If thinking through consequences does not dissipate your anger, then you can remove yourself from the situation completely and cool off. Try again to resolve your issue when your emotions have settled down.
Action for the day:
Think about how you deal with anger. Does your anger hurt you or others? Plan a strategy to implement when your anger rises. Get help if you need it.
