How to Make Anger Work For You

October 27th, 2014

We talked about how to cull your emotions in the last post, but in this post, we’ll be discussing your anger’s capability to focus you into your work and productivity.

Anger is a very strong emotion. It is capable of getting you into trouble because your strong feelings may manifest into dangerous expressions. This could tarnish your relationships with other people and even do irreversible damages. Unless the other party is understanding, your anger will not solve anything.

 

Your anger actually enhances your focus and concentration. However, if you could divert your anger into something more productive, it can definitely make a difference.

 

The next time you get mad, ask yourself you have more work to do and there are other things that you need to focus on. When you realise the world will not stop for you, that’s when you come to a point that you need to be productive, or else you risk losing the chance for your own growth. Picture your task as a punching bag that you could deal blows by doing everything on time and precisely.

 

Accepting the damages and the impact is one way to retain your concentration. The body has a fight-or-flight mechanism that activates to “fight” when we’re angry and furious. Instead of focusing on the damages, focus on accepting that it has already happened, passed and forgiven, and you could just change what is happening at present.

 

Lastly, goals are very important. Prioritise all your tasks for the day instead of focusing on what isn’t supposed to happen. Don’t let your anger cloud your productivity by trying to ease it. Instead, focus your efforts to let your mind wander with your tasks. See the beauty in the small capabilities and achievements you could do attaining your tasks. In this way, you also ease the emotions while retaining your focus all the while.

The Best Ways You Could Unleash Your Anger

January 8th, 2014

Anger is a strong emotion that is highly likely uncontrollable for any individual. Unleashing your anger on someone can tear down relationships or deteriorate the quality of your life emotionally. If you cannot control unleashing your anger but you want to avoid hurting people, here are a few things that can help.

1. Get a Punching/Kicking Bag
Regardless whether you are physically trained for martial arts or you have any combat skill, getting something you could physically attack without hurting anybody (except maybe yourself) is crucial to controlling your anger. Having a punching or kicking bag at home greatly helps in helping lower your adrenaline as you tire yourself out pummelling against the bag that can take it.

2. Verbal Anger
When angry, you could choose to shout at the person you are angry at, including all the cuss and the un-charming words you would like to express. However, you could do this by going inside the bathroom, turning on the sink and shouting everything while the water splashes. You could also play loud music in a small room and do the same to vent you out.

3. Talk
The best way to relieve anger is to talk to a person who could digest everything you say. You could also talk to strangers, which helps your mind focus more on becoming decent in talking to people you do not directly know, about your problem. The sudden shyness or interaction with a person you could trust can help lower your adrenaline and activate your mental faculties, which help lower your emotional tendencies.
