It is normal for most people to lose their temper once in a while. However, if you lose it everyday, there are steps you can take to work on being a calm person. I have a few suggestions. See what works for you.
1. First of all, work on your belief that you are a short tempered person. Often, when we strongly believe something about ourselves, we tend to exhibit the same behaviour that we want to get rid of. You can maintain a diary, in which you can write positive statements everyday about you being a calm and cool person.
2. Also, take a few moments to visualise you being calm and cool. You can do this when you wake up in the morning, before going to bed and also at any other time you like.If you like music, you can play soothing music while visualising being calm. This exercise of writing in your diary and visualisation should help you acquire a new belief about you being a calm person also and give you a positive feeling about yourself. Do this activity every day and see that there are no distractions while doing this. You just need ten minutes for this activity.
3. Despite doing all this, there may be times when you feel your temper rising, Especially in the beginning. Don't give up or think you are not making progress.Progress takes time. When you feel your temper rising, take a deep breath and count to ten. Drink some water if you feel like. You shoud feel better and be abe to manage your temper this way.
4. Finally, keep in mind that beating your child will not help in the long run. Neither will it help her nor will it help you. So, train yourself to be an effective parent. You CAN do it !
