We all get angry sometimes. We’re human and we are allowed to have emotions. I’ve just recently wrote about why it’s okay to cry. Today I wanted to share with you ways that I handle my anger. These are some of the things that I do to help come down from just… being so mad. They’re all completely healthy and hopefully easy to do. Let me know down below in the comments what are some things that you do to calm yourself down!
Take a shower
I feel like taking a shower is the quickest way to relieve some anger. You know, that type of anger no one can revive you from? I always look to the shower if I need quick relief. It’s where you can be alone to collect your thoughts while also having the water beat against your back. I dont know about you guys but that sounds like a calm time to me!
Go for a walk
I used to take hour-long walks at times when I was really going through it. I found that these were extra helpful because I was mostly just cooped up in my room. So I was able to get fresh air and get some exercise. Those are both great endorphin boosters!
Watch a lighthearted show or video
This is pretty simple but it does the job for the most part. I like to watch baking shows or my favorite Youtuber Emmy if my day is just feeling too heavy. She brings so much joy to the platform. I highly recommend watching her!
Turn off my phone
If I’m furious I’ll most likely just turn off my phone. Sometimes it helps me just to disconnect from people and social media. The tiniest thing can be triggering to me and I would never want to take it out on anyone else especially if they have nothing to do it. Even if I’m not angry, it’s still nice to disconnect sometimes.
Scroll through Reddit
Okay so does this count as social media? I don’t count it… I’m a hardcore Reddit user. If I do so happen to leave my phone on its because I’m on Reddit. I love to look at all the different food communities, pubic freakouts, and especially the funny memes.
Write about it
Lastly, writing. Writing has been a huge help to me for the last couple of years. Not just when I’m angry, but when I’m sad, happy, or even scared. I just write about it. I don’t post everything I write. It’s okay to just get your feelings out and then delete it because at the end of the day you’re doing it for yourself and nobody else.
