Take control.

Have you ever felt so frustrated that anyone or anything could set you off?

When you deal with stress and anxiety on a daily basis, it's no surprise that feelings of frustration and anger can eventually get the best of you. Instead of cooling off, you end up lashing out at the people around you, and this can be especially painful to your partner, your co-workers, and your kids. 

Here's the thing: When you let yourself get caught up in your emotions, you can often end up saying or doing things that you regret.  

Instead of focusing your time and energy on the things that make you happy, you're in a place of looking back and feeling badly about your behavior.  

The good news is that this experience can change.
