How do I stop getting mad when I get "killed" during a board game?

Sometimes my family and I go to a friend's house after church to play a board game with her and some other people from our church. I am very competitive, so I get irritated when I get sent back home to start, or when I lose the game. How can I learn to just enjoy the game with my family and friends instead of being a sore loser?

    Make a conscious decision to be less aggravated, and eventually you'll learn to stop getting so angry and staying calm will come naturally.
