1) Be Careful Not to Overgive
Offering too much of yourself, energy, and time can lead to anger and boiling over. A couple ways you can gain back control are:
1) Imagine your future self when presented with another task. Think of how you'll be impacted.
2) You may not be able to fully process what taking on a new task means in the moment. Give yourself time to think it over.
2) Small Releases Along the Way
Don't let stressors build up. Be aware of when you're irritated and use it as signal to use a release. A release could be communicating your feelings, stepping away from a situation, meditation, or exercising.
3) Take a Break If Close to Boiling Over
If you begin to feel anger growing in a given moment, take a break. Allow yourself to turn down the intensity of your anger and be aware of what's happening.
