As we approach the holidays, we often feel anxiety and stress as we are about to meet with several of our friends and family. We go through extensive planning and preparation so the day can be perfect.
While doing all of that, we should also make sure our emotions don’t lead us to becoming irritated, frustrated, or angry. Anup Vora’s article in the Huffington Post addresses how to deal with anger, which is especially relevant during the holidays and share with your friends and family. As a result, you’ll enjoy the holidays even more. Read “How to Deal with Anger” via Huffington Post
