How to Prevent Your Anger From Spiraling Out of Control

For some, the holidays aren't necessarily all sweetness and light. With immediate and extended family gathered and the discussions of world events and politics that can produce; with some worn thin working odd hours with cranky coworkers; and travel by plane, train and automobile, tensions can run higher than usual.

But that doesn't mean we can't keep our own emotions in check. As "they" say, you can't control others, but you can control how you react toward them — and often, that makes a significant difference in the moods and behaviors of those around you.

This well researched article offers suggestions on how to communicate in tense situations as well as diffuse and keep reign on anger that gets a start simmering beneath the surface. Check it out; you may be able to use a technique that makes the inevitable refugee, presidential candidate and "who's eating the last slice of pie" discussion smooth sailing, and make your holiday season even more enjoyable.
