"This is making me a headache!"
That lovely line above came out of my now 5yo's mouth when he was
frustrated over the daunting task of trying to learn how to tie his
shoes. He blurted the sentence out then tossed the sneaker across
the room. I walked over to him and talked to him about his
frustration (Heck, getting those loops just right is hard work --
smile). I explained to him that while it is OK to get angry and
frustrated that there are proper ways to do it.
Anger is a completely natural response to frustration. Let's face
it, life is filled with things that can become frustrating, and most
of those things are totally out of our control. What we do control
is how we deal with those issues. In this message that I also share
Journey to Joy
students, I wanted to touch on positive ways that we can deal with,
express and release our anger and frustration in positive ways.
Think it out - When you begin to feel angry -- sit down,
relax and then try to think about how you can solve the issue.
Talk it out - Talk to a friend, coach, counselor, or a church
member. Expressing your anger by talking to someone about it is a
great way to get the anger out.
Write it out - Keep a journal about your feelings. It really
helps to get your feeling out of our head and heart and onto paper.
Let it out - Find a place that is secluded and SCREAM!! Yes,
let it out - you can scream into a pillow, punch a pillow or stomp.
Sometimes a good temper tantrum is in order.
Channel it out - Find some creative way to channel your
feelings. Listen to music, paint, turn on the music and dance! There
are many ways to creatively channel out anger.
Chill out - Try listening to calming music, taking in slow
deep breaths, meditating or doing yoga.
Work it out - Do something physical. Get out and run, go to
the gym or go for a brisk walk.
Please keep in mind that anger isn't always a bad emotion but
sometimes the way we deal with our anger is bad. There are many
times where anger can be good and is quite appropriate. At can be
protection from allowing other people to manipulate or dominate us.
It can also motivate us to take action when needed.
