Although there are many reasons that incite our frustrations, the main reasons are founded on two major factors: money and relationships.
We get frustrated because we either don’t have money, we are losing money or money is not coming in as expected. We also get frustrated because of the people we deal with: especially because we are all different and view the world from a diverse perspective.
One thing I have learned is that the factors that promote our negative emotions, plus the negative emotions are not as crucial in influencing our emotional well-being as our perception about them. As such, my intention is to share 10 tips that you can use to get out of a frustrated mood regardless of the foundation of your frustrations. Remember, it is not what happens to us that impacts our lives; it’s how we perceive whatever happens.
By moving, I mean, changing your physicality. Do yoga, dance, go for a walk, exercise: the idea is to get your body moving. Once your body is moving, your brain will change its focus from the frustration to whatever you are doing.
“The difference between peak performance and poor performance is not intelligence or ability; most often it’s the state that your mind and body is in.” – Tony Robbins
Note that emotion is created by motion. In other words, emotions are linked to movement in our bodies. Observe your posture when you are happy, as opposed to when you are sad — or what you look like when you are angry, versus when you are elated.
Listen To Inspirational Or Upbeat Music.
I understand that sometimes when you are feeling frustrated or sad you don’t have the guts to listen to anything. But if you are so sick and tired of feeling negative you will do whatever it takes to feel better. Some of the songs I listen to when I’m sad include, but are not limited to the following:
The Storm is Over – R Kelley
A New Day Has Come – Celine Dion
Roar – Katy Perry
Departed (Right Here) – Brandy
I look to You – Whitney Houston
I’m Your Angel – Celine Dion and R Kelly
When You Believe – Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey
Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) – Kelly Clarkson
One Step at a Time – Jordan Sparks
Note that it is important to spend time making your own list.
Cleaning your space has a magical way of making you feel better. As you clean, your mind goes into the cleaning mood. As such, you implicitly clean the frustration from your mind.
Imagine receiving $1 Million in your bank account; make a list of how you would spend it.
Just go into your kitchen and concoct recipes regardless of what you are cooking. The process will definitely help you divert your mind from the frustration.
Change your furniture around. Don’t try to be perfect. Just change things around in whichever way you want.
Go window shopping
This will help you realize how blessed you are.
Make big plans.
Just make plans without worrying about the resources required to realize them. Make plans as you focus on the things you want to manifest in your life—imagining that there are no obstacles that can hinder you from achieving your goals.
Remember that the difference between where you are emotionally or mentally, and where you want to be, is only a decision away. Once you decide to change your mind about anything, you have literally embarked on a profound journey of getting to your desired destination.
Reading self-help books is also another vital tip that will help infuse your mind with self-improvement–which is a good thing. You may want to check out my book: Do Not Force It, Tap The Good – Link – https://www.amazon.com/Do-not-Force-TAP-GOOD/dp/1461079098

Pardon my error, it is 12/24/2017 and not 12/24/2018, like I indicate in the video. I guess, I’m living fast forward. 🙂
In this audio recording, I share my take on what a holiday season and especially Christmas, could be redefined by each of us in order to create individualized experiences that do not only rekindle our spirits, but also contribute to humanity and the environment, rather than take from it continuously without considering the consequences.
