In this new episode of Awareness Addicts, Dr. Gala Gorman, the shows host, details how to manage emotions, especially anger.
As Gorman says, When we bump up against our fellow humans and overreact, it consumes a TON of energy. We need to learn to deal with these upsets more efficiently so we can stay focused on what matters. One of the things that we have to consider as we learn to manage our anger and emotions is how to allow passion and enthusiasm to be alive and well, while at the same time not feel like its got to turn to anger and bullying.
In this episode, listeners will:
- Learn how to react with intention rather than emotion
- Understand which triggering experiences create negative reactions
- Identify the causes of emotional reactions that escalate negative situations
A recent article from Politico Magazine discussed public displays of emotional control in our presidents, specifically Obama and Trumps method of controlling anger.
According to the article in Politico Magazine, there was one big thing that Obama failed to do, which was get angry. The article goes on to say, If you had to pinpoint one specific thing hes done badly, you might start with his perplexing failure to get riled up about rile-worthy behavior, his no-drama reluctance to pick defining public fights. They went on to say that, Obama has an anger over-management problem.
In contrast, Trumps id-driven rise is a jarring reminder, after a series of relatively mild-mannered commanders-in-chief, that anger can be a politically powerful force. He has used his bully pulpit for actual bullying, and many Americans seem excited to see that kind of rhetorical muscle deployed on their behalf.
Obama would never use his Twitter feed orwith one annual exceptionhis podium to lob personal insults at random critics or call out political enemies as stupid, lying, crooked losers and clowns.
As Gorman explains, Obama would see that kind of behavior as unpresidential. But apparently it isnt, which is the point of the article, because Trump does it all the time. Regardless of what side of the fence youre on, I think theres no arguing that Trump says it like it is or at least his version of like it is.
Gorman reminds listeners, One of the things that we have to consider, as we learn to manage our anger and emotions, is how to allow passion and enthusiasm to still be alive and well, while at the same time, not feel like it has to turn to anger and bullying.
This show was created to provide Sage Advice for taking inspired action. Awareness is the key. With this key, its easier to navigate in the human world with all of its detours. As awareness is developed, along with it comes an intimate understanding of self. And, that enhanced sense of awareness introduces some new information into the mix. With that new knowledge or outside the box experience, there is a spark that adds to life.
The shows host, Dr. Gala Gorman, is a holistic life coach and minister. She is the author of the Spiritual Approach TM Series of books focused on practical spirituality. As an entrepreneur mediator, publisher and, formerly, accounting firm partner, her experiences helped shape the creation of the show. As a change facilitator, she ignites transformation in businesses, families, students, clients and, especially, within herself.
When asked about why she created the show, Gorman said: Developing awareness is whats worked for me. In fact, Im a bit of an Awareness Addict. And, Im hoping listeners will become addicted too.
Gorman has hopes that the show will save listeners from wasting time feeling confused and stuck. As fellow Awareness Addicts, she believes theyll be alive, alert, awake and aware of lifes possibilities. As listeners practice what she talks about on the show to develop awareness, theyll build muscles around their awareness skills. The idea is to close the gap so they can switch into awareness much more quickly applying awareness and understanding before getting into something they regret.
