 To all my friends recently touched by destruction and dire circumstances, as our collective prayers, thoughts and actions aid recovery from Superstorm Sandy, and to all of my friends not  in the New York Metro area, let’s remember we can always accelerate resilience in spirit with these simple steps:

• Set specific goals that are attainable.  Take baby steps to get there when necessary.
• When you are feeling down due to personal circumstances, take stock of your strengths and positive circumstances and BE GRATEFUL!!
• Surround yourself with positive people as much as possible.
• Do not read, watch or listen to the news if you become “too upset”.

You are the only one who can control your attitude. By focusing on what is strong and enduring and seeing potential, you can take calculated risks and overcome challenges .


It takes an open, creative mind free from anxiety to pick up on opportunities.


They are out there ready to be accessed by your positive and resilient radar!!

Anger provoking events are all around us; like stress it is in the perception of each individual as to how one responds.  When you get angry, it is beacause an event has provoked your anger.  Everyday events such as these are anger provoking in the moment or because it has reminded you of a similar situation in the past that was anger provoking:

  • Being cut off on the road
  • Traffic congestion
  • Long waiting in a doctor’s office
  • Long lines in the store, post office, bank to wait on
  • Crowded buses and trains
  • Being wrongly accused
  • A friend joking about a sensitive topic
  • Having an untidy roomate or family member
  • Having to clean up someone else’s mess
  • Being placed on hold for long periods of time while on the telephone
  • Having difficulty understanding someone on the telephone in customer service
  • Being given wrong directions
  • Having anything stolen from you
  • Rumors spread about you
  • Having a neighbor who plays the stereo too loud, etc.

It is also possible for specific events to touch on sensitive areas in your life.  These “red flags” usually refer to long standing issues that can easily lead to anger.  For example,  even though you may be a good reader as an adult, a childhood slowness sensitivity may be evoked when someone rushes us or becomes impatient re completing an application or form, or when someone calls us “slow” or “stupid”.

As an anger coach and being US Court certified as an Anger Management Specialist I help individuals and groups to learn how to deal with anger provoking events and triggers.  You may contact me to find out how we can work together via telephone, skpe or face to face in Long Island, NY.

While conducting a road rage discussion in one of my anger/stress management groups, I came to understand a few commonalities about drivers who experience this to an extreme:

  • They take being cut off personally and  will purposely catch up with the culprit to almost swerve into it that ensues into a swerve-off.
  • Road Rage is only one aspect of anger manifestation: these people do not see the big picture or consequences regarding their actions.
  • If they did  realize consequences they would realize that their actions could cause accidents, injury and death. They are totally in the moment without regard for anyone else on the road or in their own car- not to mention the blood pressure effect, and may think they are invinceable- totally ego driven.

Lesson:  See the whole chessboard when u play chess!

If you or a loved one experience extreme symptoms of anger or stress, call me for a complimentary consult via telephone.  I am a certified Anger Management Specialist accepted by the US judicial system, former Biofeedback Therapist and adjunct Hofstra University.    www.balanceandpower.com I have several locations in Long Island, NY and conduct sessions over SKYPE and telephone.
