Frustration is when you are in need of something and not obtaining it. Each person would have experienced it at some point in their life.
Manipulate these seven steps on how to deal with frustration to work through your feelings of frustration in more favorable and optimal ways.
1. Accept Reality
Something really bad could have happened. This does not mean it is the end of your world. Your clock is still going to continue ticking. Instead of getting depressed thinking about how you could have stopped this from happening, start thinking of ways to alter the situation in a way where you can move on. Accept the reality, adapt to the circumstances and overcome your fear.
2. Shift Your Focus
Once a situation becomes unfavorable to us our mind naturally tends to focus on the anxiety and anger the scenario has created. Learning to shift your focus from your feelings and starting to make logical decisions is what will get you out of the sticky wicket.
3. Talk About It With A Friend
Always have someone to whom you are entirely truthful. We normally get the feeling that sharing our helplessness shows weakness. Accepting your weakness to someone helps you in getting a different perspective on the situation, at times even a better solution.
4. Read Something Funny
This might not be a solution to your problems but it will give you a moment of ease. At times that moment of ease is what is necessary to give a solution to your problems.
5. Stop Blaming Yourself
Let us say you have messed up really big and really bad. The best thing you can go about doing is thinking of a way to turn things around as much as possible. Instead of blaming yourself, accept responsibility for the situation and accept the responsibility of finding a solution.
6. Stand Up And Fight
Take orders from yourself and follow them to the T. You are always your best judge. Fight the battles from a point you feel that your strengths are most useful. Make a note of your weaknesses and work on improving them with military precision. Self-motivation and self-development are always the best.
7. Get Physical
Follow a perfect workout regime. It does not have to be a heavy one. But make sure you make a plan and stick to it. A sound body makes way for a sound mind. A sound mind in turn, helps you process feelings better.
