Are You Frustrated With…Your Life, Your Friends, Your Job….Traffic, Neighbors…….Yup.
Life can be frustrating.
Frustrations with…..Your Weight, Your Health, Your Job, Traffic, Lies, Noise, Neighbors, Pets, Bad Drivers, School, Boyfriend, Husband, Kids, Politics…..etc. etc!
You get it. Lots of frustrations in life—if you look at it that way.
"Every obstacle is an opportunity in disquise". ~ Deepak Chopra
A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity;
an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. – Winston Churchill
Don't know about you—but I was brought up in a negative family.
We were not taught to look at the positive side of things.
We focused on judgment, frustrations and negativity.
Breaking that habit has been difficult for me.
But I've found some great tools to move away from judgment, negativity and frustration.
Some solutions to dissolve frustrations:
► A great tool is to focus on something good in the situation. Yes. That can be difficult—but you can do it.
The other day when I was stuck in traffic because of construction , I was able to look around at the beautiful scenery.
Rather than focusing on the traffic delay, I saw beauty, instead.
Remember—you get to choose how you feel—good or bad.
Care about yourself enough to choose good things.
► Is the subject of your frustration really that important?
Like life or death? Probably not. So get things into perspective.
► Write down 5 things that you're grateful for. Focus on positive things.
Picture your frustations flying away.
You deserve wonderful things. You deserve to be peaceful and relaxed.
► Take your dog for a walk and clear your head. Don't have a dog? Borrow one…or go for a brisk walk…or go to the gym.
The key is to get your mind off the frustration and move on. Get physical!
► Call or see a supportive friend. Sometimes we just need to talk with someone about our frustrations.
Maybe your friend can come up with a way to deal with your frustration.
In any event, it's great to express our feelings, come up with solutions and let them go.
► When I'm experiencing frustration, I go to my computer, put on my headset and listen to an appropriate Meditation.
