Stop Overreacting


Effective Strategies for Calming Your Emotions

Author: Judith P. Siegel, PhD, LCSW

Do you often:

  • Regret things you say or do in the heat of the moment?
  • Lash out at loved ones?
  • Have to apologize to others for your actions or words?
  • Feel surprised at your seemingly uncontrollable reactions?
  • Assume the worst about situations and people?
  • Withdraw when things get emotionally overwhelming?

Lashing out or withdrawing entirely are knee-jerk reactions that can have lasting and unintended consequences, affecting our friendships, careers, families, and romantic relationships.   The truth is, overreacting hurts us as much as it hurts the people around us.   You may see overreacting as an unchangeable part of your personality, but in reality, this tendency, like any other, can be unlearned.

Stop Overreacting  helps you identify your emotional triggers, discover a new way of processing impulsive thoughts and feelings, and understand how your emotions can undermine your ability to think rationally in moments of crisis and stress.   You’ll learn how to neutralize overwhelming emotions and choose healthy responses instead of flying off the handle.   Ready to make a change for the better?   It’s time to stop overreacting and start feeling collected and in control.
