Or Venom Ventors that work!
Cry. It’ll help discharge the tension, relax muscles.
Exercise. Aerobics, jogging, running all focus our energy on one activity and help dispel the tension.
Work. Working hard lets us focus our energy to a specific task.
Laugh. Humour deflects our anger and lets us relax.
Write. It helps us discharge our feelings.
Talk. Talk about what’s hurting, it’ll help you calm down.
Play. Read, watch TV, play games, do a hobby; these are psychological sponges that sop up stress.
Solve the Problem. Direct your energy towards what’s wrong; it reduces the stress because you anticipate relief.
Punch. Hit your pillow, your bed, a punching bag; have a private blowout.
Tune in. Music can be profoundly calming. Take a little time alone with a favourite recording.
Tune out. No activity at all. Brief rest periods like taking a huge sigh before responding will help you feel calm.
Look again. Stand in the shoes of the person you’re feeling angry with. Look at their needs, beliefs, values, limitations.
Argue. With yourself. Take the other person’s point of view; then express your own point of view. Argue for both.
