"Old School" Anger Management

  • Identify the number one bad habit holding you back? (Not sure, ask your spouse or someone else you trust.)
  • Find an unpleasant penance that you must perform every time you behave badly.  (Conversely, treat yourself when you do well.)
  • Think about how you will overcome your bad habit as you work through your penance.
  • Focus on getting a little better every day.
