Create 'when, then' resolution statements to form new habits. For example, I resolve that when I feel angry and want to shout, then I take four deep breaths and speak from a place of peace and calmness. Practice these resolutions and understand that they take time to become habits. It's not realistic to think that after making the resolution I will never lose my head and start shouting ever again but when I make a mistake, then I identify the opportunity for learning a lesson (another one of my favorite 'when, then' resolution statements). Use the simple 'When, Then' Technique to create habits and become the person you want to be.
