"If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape one hundred days of sorrow.” ~Chinese Proverb

Not to long ago we had an entire episode about enhancing mindfulness. Today's topic is very related and it has to do with some ideas, tips and best practices, even mindsets around how to best control one's temper.

MG and Henry trade some tips and share some stories... Henry talks about his experience recently where he was so upset he had to go hit a punching bag (NOT people) for an extended period of time. "Try that for just one minute and you'll be winded and you'll also be addressing your 'fight or flight' natural response to anger and stress. It's a great way to address the pent up energy."

Martin then reflects on the very powerful and insightful statement: "Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." Viktor E. Frankl 

Then, MG shares this gem from Thomas Jefferson, "When you are angry count to ten, and if very angry count to one hundred."

Check it out and hear how to keep your cool when frustration and anger set in!
