I am easily angered and annoyed but i usually keep silent and am generally a very calm person who does not speak out loudly on his problems with other people. I can distract myself from the stress I accumulate by browsing/playing video games or watching calm and interesting documentaries. But other than these, I have no mean of relieving my stress. I really dont know what to do. I feel like I cant think of anything else than my problems once I stop distracting myself. Even once I solve these, I wont stop thinking about what could happen and what could go wrong, all that. Please, can you guys recommend a good way of relieving stress/anger? Its just so overwhelming I cant do anything nice anymore without sinking into depression.
Sometimes when I get really angry, it helps to exercise. Even if it's something "non-violent" like just going out and running for a while, it's really good at relieving stress and make you feel better. If you go out running, you can think about your problems, and run really hard/fast and push yourself when you're feeling angry. It's a healthy way to get your frustrations out, even if you don't have access to nice gym equipment like a punching bag or weights. You can also try other exercises like sit-ups and push-ups if you don't have the time or space to run. I personally think exercise is one of the best ways to relieve stress and anger, and make yourself feel all around better.
Just taking in a few deep breaths with your eyes closed can really help relieve some anger, there are many ways of relieving anger but simply talking through your thoughts and feelings with someone that you either know or someone online really works wonders. It helps to get your thoughts in order and also what you need to do to help yourself to be a happier person. You can talk to me if you want to talk to someone, or anyone, we are all here to help:)
When I'm angry, I take a shower and make myself coffee. It really does work for me, and seems to be a cure for anger and sadness either, or both.
And sometimes when I'm infuriatingly frustrated, and want to break things, I take my anger out on stress relief balls. That's better than taking it out on others, right?
exercise usually helps quite a bit. I personally have some hefty aggression issues, I found that boxing helped to quiet the beast within more than anything else i've ever tried. granted everyone is different.
At some point, we all need to let out some of our pent up emotions, that's just how it its. Generally exercise is good like running or something more aggressive perhaps like boxing or something. It also exhausts you at the same time and you don't have to worry about lashing out on other people. For stress though, finding something to relax yourself like a nice long bath. Remove yourself from the stress inducing things and allow some time where you're the only focus. Do whatever you want, that you enjoy and don't worry too much about the rest. Meditation as well of course, though it's not everyone's up of tea but nevertheless maybe it's something that could work for you. Animals is also very good, some colleges even have puppy rooms where students can go and cuddle for a few minutes when they need it.
And sometimes, all you really need is to yell. Literally, and the urge is gone.
Of course, the best thing to deal with it, is to prevent it in the first place as much as you can before it gets to be too much for you when you reach a point where pulling out your hair seems tempting. Look and see where the feelings of stress and such come from, is there something you can do to minimize them?
