What do you do to calm down when you're mad?

Right now I am trying to calm down... my husband had to go to work (he's a truck driver over the road) and he doesn't like it so... he's really strange the day he has to go so... he made me really angry without doing anything particular. Probably I am frustrated of this way of living, too and his mood is just increasing my frustration.


So, right now I am at the YMCA cafe (working on our taxes technically) having a hot hazelnut and french vanilla coffee and trying to calm down. God bless the YMCA membership and child care!

My friend taught me this: put your tongue on the roof of your mouth and close your eyes. Picture anything that makes you happy, your kids bday party or a vacation or anything that's positive and take slow breaths in and out until your blood pressure slows down. It's good for that instant I can't calm down or think clearly cuz I'm so pissed anger.

Go work out! Work out really hard so you are so tired you can't be angry anymore.

I talk to someone if possible.. write or type my feelings out.. cry if I can (a lot of the times I'm too mad to cry.. lol).. go outside with my camera and focus on finding a good picture.. things like that.. if it's really, really bad I take an Ativan.  The Ativan is a last resort for those times when I'm feeling like I need to punch a wall, which is usually tied to my PMDD. 

I hope you find something that works.. it's good to have a list of things to do and just go down it one by one until you are calm.. lol.  Good luck!!!
