092 Three tips to keep your cool when you're triggered

Let’s talk about the triggers that cause us to lose our patience or our temper and three ideas that have worked for me to combat that.

I’ve said it before, and it is still true, at least in my case – parenting is an ultimate test of emotional resilience.

Crying babies, little conflicts between spouses, diaper blowouts at most inconvenient times, sleep issues, etc. - it’s not always easy to remain cool, calm and collected.

Then again, I’ve learned that when we lose our tempers, in reality it’s rarely about the given moment. Often times it’s just the last straw that broke the camel’s back.

The real culprits are more likely our overall stress-levels, or the feelings that you don’t get enough credit or the chronic sleeplessness that cause us to operate at sub-optimal levels…

It’s completely normal to feel out of control at times – hey, welcome to parenthood. But it’s not OK to act out of anger or frustration. That undermines our relationships and the connection we have with our closest ones.

Just try to be as conscious as you can about the triggers that often times get you, take care of your own physical and mental well-being, so you wouldn’t burn out and take care of your close relationships. And you should be able to keep your cool most of the time.
