Someone I see in therapy asks, “I want to know how can I control my temperament/anger, and increase my patience with my 3 year old son. I am out of energy, struggling with my weight/shape, time management and level of responsibility at work. I feel like a zombie.”
Three year olds can be a handful and everyone seems to be overwhelmed today. Regarding your anger and weight, try this affirmation, “I choose not to be angry or overeat, I choose to be in control.”
Why this particular affirmation? Because it addresses both of your issues: anger and weight and the mere repetition of the affirmation will help you feel more calm. Say it several thousands times a day (no joking!).
