Why hello there, folks, I’m back with another post
Hope you guys are not too distressed by all that white, cold stuff falling from the sky. Even though I wasn’t all that thrilled about it, it has been getting me into the holiday spirit. The Christmas tree is officially up and standing here at the Schvan apartment! I shall post pictures soon! All this fun started after Gen and I had spent the day yesterday dealing with Rogers over their Live Chat system. My goodness, those guys will do anything to get a little more money from ya, won’t they? Sorry, I won’t start a rant, I shall remain zen as always. One good thing that did come from the experience is this post… 7 ways to deal with anger! Still zen over here, guys, still zen.
7 Ways to Deal With Anger!
Breathing – You know the drill, breathe in, 1, 2, 3, breathe out, 1, 2, 3. I’m calming down just thinking about it.
Laughing – This is definitely my go-to whenever I feel slightly miffed. Example: yesterday with Rogers, Gen and I could have some laughs about the responses we got from our Live Chat friend. Laughter really can be the best medicine sometimes.
Communicating – IF at all possible, talking with whoever is making you angry could lead to something better and brighter. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t… let’s just say this can be a judgement call…
Distracting – Finding something to take your mind off the issue could maybe help. Whenever I felt like I would scream at that Rogers dude last night, I took out my trusty phone or had a little snack. It works with kids, and it works with Zoey 🙂
Chilling – I’ve been told this time and time again… if you’re angry, annoyed, what have you, please feel free to take a break. Step out, get fresh air, scream into a pillow, meditate if that works for ya … all that good stuff.
Solving – Ah, here’s the miracle one… finding a solution! Trying to come up with feasible outcomes, figuring out how to get there, etc.. You know, that one in a million time that all works out for the best.
Asking – Are you feeling overwhelmed with anger? Do you know someone who is great at mediating? Hopefully someone neutral. Ask ’em for some help or advice! One of the perks I get from having a wife in the Conflict Resolution program, I guess? 🙂
These are just some little things I’ve tried, so please don’t take my amateur advice too too seriously 😉
What do you guys do to deal with anger? Any anecdotes you’d like to share?
Thanks for reading, everyone! Until next time,
