As soon as you notice that burst of anger, start with a pause. Take a moment. When we continue to talk or argue after we’re getting upset, conflict escalates quickly.

  • Stretch or do a few quick jumping jacks to get some energy out

Emotions have a big impact on how we think, act, and treat people. And these are key pieces to Christian family life!

If you notice that you’re struggling with an emotion of some kind, pay attention to a few things that might impact your family relationships:

  • What are you thinking about?
  • How is this emotion impacting your tone of voice and body language with your family?
  • Is this emotion changing how you communicate with other people?
  • Are you reacting to people differently because of this emotion?

When you notice an impact, do something about it.
