Even though Rosh Hashana is our day of judgement, nevertheless it is holiday and should be treated as such. Therefore during the prayers one should not try to summon tears. Instead he should be happy and trust that Hashem in his infinite kindness has written him and his family in the book of life. One should try very hard to not let his anger get the better of him on Rosh Hashana, as it says in Pirkei Avot "better a calm person than a strong one, and better one who controls himself than one who conquers a city." If possible one should also study the mishnayot of masechet Rosh Hashana at the holiday meals.
