Mental Health Tip of the Week – Avoid Overreactions: Wait until some time has passed and your emotions have decreased in strength before deciding to act in some significant way. Generally speaking, people don’t stay angry for long, they forgive, you forgive, and life returns to normal. Many people tend to catastrophize (i.e. think of the worst case scenario) following stressful events, and they feel like they have to act NOW! Breathe, slow down, and wait until things have calmed down.
