Hey everyone! Today, I wanted to talk to you all about something that’s pretty important. I’ve had several family friends or people on social media that I have seen go to the hospital and pass away because of a time where they were upset. You might not be aware, but if you allow yourself to become too angry about a situation, it can actually harm your mental and physical health. ✨
It is very important that, at all times, we stay as calm as possible. Especially because this COVID situation is already enough to be a little concerned about. This is exactly why I think it is a great idea to share 4 Positive Calming Mechanisms with you all.
Let’s get started!
- Write down your feelings. ✨
This is a technique that even I use sometimes. Whenever you are feeling sad, mad, or maybe even anxious about something, it’s a really great idea to write down your feelings in a journal, without showing it to anyone else. By the time you are finished, I’m sure that your feelings will have come under control.
2. Take a deep breath. ✨
Sometimes, it’s important that we take a few seconds to take long, deep breaths, or maybe even count to 5 or 10. Using this calming mechanism can give you a moment to relax and compose yourself, before you do anything that you might regret in the future. Using a few seconds to calm yourself can really help when you are upset.
3. Do some yoga or take a walk. ✨
Taking a peaceful stroll in nature or doing a few stretches can both be very relaxing. If you ever feel a little stressed out about anything, doing something that is healthy for your body can help to maintain and/or improve both your physical and mental health. Besides, even if you don’t have any intense feelings, at the moment, it’s always a great idea to exercise to keep yourself healthy.
4. Listen to some calming music. ✨
If you enjoy music, try listening to jazz, classical, gospel, rock, pop, or whatever type of music you like in order to calm yourself down. Let’s be honest, it’s pretty hard to be angry or sad when you’re listening to your favorite song or songs by your favorite artists. Music is a very powerful tool, and can also be an amazing calmative.
Okay everyone! I hope that you all benefitted from these 4 Positive Coping Mechanisms. Remember, we all get angry sometimes, and there’s nothing wrong with that. However, it’s important not to act negatively on that anger.
Have a healthy, happy, and delightful day everyone! ✨
