Are You Tired of Feeling Angry, Resentful and Fearful?

It’s a fact, most of us feel anger, resentment and fear on a daily basis. There are healthy ways to lessen their harmful effect on us and the people we encounter (pets too). It should be noted that I am not a therapist; only someone who has experienced it along with the following exercises.

Frustrated guyFirst of all don’t beat yourself up for feeling this way. It is natural. The answer isn’t to eliminate them, it’s how we respond to them. If you can accept that; you’re halfway there.

Holding on to anger, resentment and fear too long is so very harmful to our emotional, physical and spiritual health. I learned some time ago that resentments in particular are much more detrimental and poisonous to the owner. The other people usually have no idea.  While therapy may be appropriate I want to offer a list of healthy and often much more immediate relief. 

Even a short break from the distress is most welcome.

Try these exercises to get relief from feeling angry, resentful and fearful…

  1. Sit comfortably, close your eyes and focus on long slow breaths for as little as 30 seconds. Of course longer is better. This can briefly take you away from the negative thoughts. Identify the location in your body that carries the stress. Breathe into that area. Repeat as needed. The beauty is you can make this happen while you’re stopped at a red light.
  2. Grab a piece of paper and without judgement write down in incomplete sentences or just one word the source of distress. This moves it out of the toxic mind. Determine the validity of the disturbing thought. Next to each write the word “REAL”  or “IMAGINED”. (Is it real or fake news?) Remember, our minds can lie to us. Thus conjuring the saying, “We are our own worst enemy.” This exercise may eliminate feeling overwhelmed and many of the items on your list. When complete symbolically destroy the lies and discard.
  3. Consider your life in general or reflect about today. Write down what you have to be GRATEFUL for?  For example in no specific order.
    • I have a roof over my head with running water and indoor plumbing
    • I have food in my refrigerator
    • Money in the bank
    • My ChildrenParent Child
    • My significant other
    • My Car is there for me
    • My pet
    • I live in a free country
    • I love my music
    • I love my sense of humor
    • My friends
    • My body allows me to be mobile, dance and play sports.

See if you notice a shift. This isn’t one and done. Repeat from scratch each time. I hope these few exercises give you a lighter and more satisfying presence.

Did You Catch us on The List?

3 Things That You’ve Gotta Know About Rage Rooms – from The List TV

Life can get stressful and stress can make you mad. You could do yoga, or, go for a run – but does anything feel as good as letting your anger out with good, old-fashioned rage? Now, we’re not saying you should throw a coffee mug at a coworker if you get mad at work – you can throw things around things at an anger room. These stress-relieving rooms are becoming more and more popular, and Teresa Strasser’s showing you why.

Also known as anger rooms, these palaces built for smashing have been around since the late 2000’s, and ever since, people have been flocking to put on visors and overalls and get to letting out their inner frustrations with the help of some organized destruction.

Well, don’t walk in and start smashing the front desk, but once you get into your rage release room, you’ll be able to break things however you want – smash them against walls, take a bat to them, yell, scream, whatever feels best for letting out those angry feelings.

While you shouldn’t consider anger rooms your go-to method for stress therapy, there’s nothing wrong with periodically tapping into your primal, breaking urges. So, visit an anger room near you today to get hardcore with your stress relief.

How to Stay Calm When Stress is Upon You [Infographic]

Nothing can compare with the stress the residents of Florida are feeling right now with Hurricane Irma aiming to go right up the middle of the state. As someone who’s lived through 6 hurricanes in her lifetime, the worst one being Andrew in Miami in 1992, you basically have 3 choices when you hear that a hurricane is coming:

  1. Leave – get the heck out of Dodge
  2. Go to a shelter
  3. Stay put, prep, hunker down and hope for the best

The problem with #1 is you need money and a place to stay to do that. It also takes time. There are only so many roads heading north in Florida. Being a peninsula, unless you can fly or take a fast boat, you have to hit the roads – along with millions of other people.

A shelter is good for those living in the coastal areas that are prone to storm surge or live in a mobile home. After Andrew, I helped out with a charity and we visited a mobile home park. It was decimated.

The 3rd choice of boarding up, stocking up and hunkering down is what I did. I parked my car near a baseball field with a concrete building, far from any loose stones, trees or debris and nothing happened to it. Everyone who left their cars in the apartment complex had damage from the decorative pebbles.

After the storm was worse. That’s the stress that people don’t plan for….

  • Living without electricity – all your food goes bad. I waited for 4 hours at a store for ice that melted in 2. Don’t bother. I was 2 weeks without power. After a while you get used to cold showers and tuna fish.
  • The banks won’t be working, neither will the ATMs. It took them several days to have money available for withdrawal.
  • Gas pumps won’t work. If you didn’t fill your gas tank up beforehand, forget it.
  • Where you work may not be open for a while. After Frances and Jeanne in Palm Bay in 2004, many businesses had to close because they did not have flood insurance and they didn’t imagine their businesses would be flooded from driving rain, broken roofs and windows.

That’s just the beginning. 

I’m sure the people of Houston, TX weren’t thinking they would get flooded like they did. Nor the folks losing their homes in the fires out west or in the earthquake in Mexico.

However, if you do know that stress is coming into your life, here are some tips in this cool infographic by Pound Place found on NeoMam.com.
