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

Posted by   + Show Post

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!

Music, take a walk, clean, play with the kids, talk to a good friend.  There are more, but there's a few for ya.

I love it, too. But I don't know why today I didn't feel like doing it... I had the impulse of going to Chicago (it's like 80 miles away) but then I thought about the crowded roads there and I gave up...


Quoting Angela_Barlow:

I usually ride. See how many miles I can get in.

I cry.

I'm trying to convince my hubby to buy me a YMCA membership. I want it for the free child care. I could SO use that to swim or work out.

when I am mad I have to be left alone for a while so I can think about thinks and just to cool down and not have any contact with my husband if he made me mad...=)

Oh... I forgot before coming to the Y... we went and bought pink piggy banks for my daughters and a purse for me (it was only 11 dollars but it is cute for summer - it was on 70% off). So... spending money helps, too you rock

I have PMDD so I have to be really careful. But I walk away and write every mean nasty thing that wants to come out of mouth and set it on fire.
