How to Manage Your Anger and Frustration

10 June 2008 7 Comments

Life is full of frustrations. From the minor irritations of losing something to the major problem of continued failure towards a desired goal. Since many of the things we truly want require a degree of frustration, being able to manage frustration is required in order to allow us to remain happy and positive even in trying circumstances.

There is a few powerful tips to overcome or control your anger and frustration:

- Communicate. Every time you feel frustration, tell someone. Expressing rather thanmanage anger suppressing your emotions will become habitual, it will help you recognise patterns and declare emotions. If you really can’t talk about it, write it down in an anger-management journal. Stop giving anger and impatience space in your head.

- What about if you angry with yourself. Control anger is so much easy, try to remember the moment that you feel respectable and get honor by your friends, colleague, brother, sister, parents and many more. You are angry because you didn’t like yourself. With remembering those moments will help you to like what actually you are.

- Manage your time. Whether it’s being in front of a computer when you are phoning a call centre or practising a speech while you’re queuing for coffee, using your time well alleviates your sense of wasted time and helps to keep your mind focused.

- Use relaxation. Relaxation strategies can reduce the feelings of tension and stress inanger your body. Practise strategies such as taking long deep breaths and focusing on your breathing, or progressively working around your body and relaxing your muscles as you go.

- Try to think peacefully. Free your mind off conflict. Try meditation. The more your mind dwells on these conflicts, the more liable you are to get frustrated.

- Use distraction.  A familiar strategy for managing anger and frustration is to distract your mind from the situation that is making you angry. Try counting to ten, playing soothing music, talking to a good friend, or focusing on a simple task like polishing the car or folding laundry.

- Exercise. Engaging in exercises increases your endorphins. Your angry mood could miraculously change to a happy one if you get involved in exercises that you enjoy doing.

- Pray. Deadly consequences arise when people could not hold back their fury. Ask for guidance that you will be able to control your temper. Prayers bring inner peace to those who ask for it.

Remember, you can not eliminate frustration. In spite of all your efforts, things will happen that will cause you frustration and anger. Life is filled with frustration, pain, loss, and the unpredictable actions of others. You can’t change that; but you can change the way you let such events affect you.
