We Don't Understand How We Feel

Scenario: You just had a bad day at work. You come home and you seem to be frustrated with everything your spouse is doing.

Is your spouse really the cause of your frustration or is it the bad day you've had at work?

It can be difficult to know where our feelings originated from because what we feel in the present moment may of originated sometime in the past. Our inability to properly identify the root cause of these feelings can create unnecessary conflict in our lives.

The body is like a computer without a cooling system. We get overheated with all these daily frustrations and we have no build in process to release that heat. Therefor it's our responsibility to find ways to release that heat, or frustration, in such a way as to not negatively impact the lives of those close to us.

How can we do this?
  • Talk it out: Sharing your frustration can free you of it.
  • Exercise: Lifting weights can help it getting that frustration out of your system.
  • Read: Reading is a form of meditation and focusing on what you read does alleviate life problems.
  • Sleep: Often, a lack of sleep is the cause of our frustration.
  • Eat a Healthy Meal: A unbalanced diet can cause havoc to your mental health. Eat right and feel right.

Get the daily frustration out in a way that doesn't negatively impact those that are near you.
