Help with Impulsiveness:
If you quickly lose patience in conversations and react forcefully or even aggressively, it is important to bring your emotions a little more under control.
In this respect, a so-called "mind-body check" can help.
This is How a "Mind-Body Check" Works
- Take time for this exercise regularly once a day – just a few moments is enough
- Ask yourself, "How am I doing right now? How do I feel physically, but also psychologically?"
- To evaluate and initiate the right actions, you can imagine a "mood traffic light":
Green: Everything is in the green zone – keep it up!
You feel relaxed and well, you are fine. Nothing needs to be changed – keep it up!
Yellow: Things are getting critical – caution!
Your stress levels are seriously high – things could get critical soon. Now you need to take the right measures to feel better again.
Red: Red alert state – a loss of control is imminent
It won't be long before you lose control. An "explosion" is imminent. You should now put your emergency plan into action.
