We have a "calm down" spot and a "time out" spot. I like this for calming down but seems too much like a reward in time out.

Time out chair - replace "ugly", of course. (What the fuck were these people thinking, sowing the seeds of body image related insecurities like that!?)

Simple discipline technique - being positive! I used to give time-out after time-out and this is more effective for my 6-year-old. I count 1-2-3 before moving his name down to give him a chance to correct. And an end-of-day reward is great incentive to stay in the 'Happy zone'.
