Conscious Creation Tip
Disconnect Your Anger Buttons
Imagine that you are wearing a breastplate full of buttons. If people “push your buttons” and activate your anger, change your response by deactivating your buttons. Disconnect the button in your imagination. Then, if someone pushes the button, it won’t work. Remember that they will probably try another one. You can learn to deactivate your buttons ahead of time so that you are ready when someone tries to push one.
