Why Anger-management and Diets Don’t Work
They rely on conscious thinking.
But most emotions are habits. And habits are much faster than conscious thinking.
- Before you know you’re angry, you want to put someone down.
- Before you know you’re sad, you want to drink or overeat.
You won’t recall your diet or health resolutions. You’ll forget promises to your spouse. Mr. Hyde won’t remember what Dr. Jekyll learned in anger-management class.

A brief emotion exercise several times a day will prevent most anger and destructive behavior.
You’ll be more flexible.
You’ll have more interest and enjoyment.
