Map of Anger — Old and New ThoughtMap
  1. Say “No!” directly and clearly to three different men, today.
  2. Get permanently rid of one piece of clothing, today.
  3. Make a phone call that you have been procrastinating, today, and end it in less than fifteen minutes.
  4. Go do fifty push-ups or fifty jumping jacks right now.
  5. Present clearly to someone what you take a stand for and why, today.
  6. Choose one irritating item off your ‘To Do’ list and wrestle it to the ground until it is totally finished and cross it off your list.
  7. Choose what you will eat for dinner off the menu in less than thirty seconds, and do not change your mind about it or complain about it.
  8. Go clean the bathroom and finish in less than eight minutes.
  9. Say right now, out loud, “I am using my anger to do the next thing”, no matter who is in the room.
  10. Sense into your emotional body right now, look for anger, even it it is only 17% intense anger, and ask it, “What do you have for me? What is the next thing for me to handle?” and when it tells you, say, “Thank you anger!” then go for it!
