We have prepared for you 12 ways to help yourself calm down and stop being nervous.
Emotionality is a property of a person that characterizes the content, quality and dynamics of his emotions and feelings. One of the main components of temperament. The properties of emotionality as one of the spheres of temperament manifestation - impressionability, sensitivity, impulsivity, etc. The substantive aspects of emotionality reflect phenomena and situations of particular significance for the subject. They are inextricably linked with the core characteristics of the personality, its moral potential: orientation of the sphere of motivational, worldview, value orientations, etc. Qualitative properties of emotionality characterize the attitude of the individual to the phenomena of the external world and are expressed in the sign and modality of the dominant emotions. The dynamic properties of emotionality include the features of the appearance, flow and termination of emotional processes and their external expression.
- Emotionality is spontaneity and liveliness of perception.
- Emotionality is the wealth and speed of association.
- Emotionality is a vivid expression of feelings and a variety of images.
- Emotions are a source of inspiration for a creative person.
- Emotionality is a reflection of the inner world.
Method 1: Take A Look At Something
This way to relieve emotional tension is good in those cases when you are trapped, cornered and cannot escape anywhere. For example, sit on a meeting and listen to your boss, internally boiling. You can not escape, but ... Distraction while contemplating something stranger, neutral and fascination with this stranger - the best way not to wind yourself over trifles.
For example: “Which, however, does Masha have a manicure ... I wonder how she did it?”.
This only works if you yourself understand the benefits of such a strategy - do not look at the crap, do not listen to the crap. If you like to boil and climb in the debate - it is your right.
Method 2: Leave an annoying situation (it is also an emotiogenic zone)
Did something sadden you on someone else's birthday? On picnic? You do not carry out any group, public, social network page? Do you dream of removing an unpleasant person from your friends list?
So, quickly left the group forever. Banned provocateur-debater, troll, boor, fool. Deleted your profile, if that.
They quickly called a taxi (do not get stuck, do not get stuck) smacked the hostess and rush home - away from the party, away from the kebabs, away from the annoying, emotiogenic zone.
Method 3: Drink some water
Now this is the main recipe for all brilliant therapists who do not trade in dietary supplements from pharmaceutical corporations.
A glass of water, drunk slowly, stops all known science attacks. The first thing they offer to a person who has been twisted by something terrible is a glass of water. Drunk water triggers the body's self-rehabilitation mechanism. Most often, people become ill for two reasons:
- hysterics (sympathetic adrenal crisis in a different way),
- not seen in time dehydration.
Since we do not listen to our body and we don’t learn OBZH, we drink tea, coffee and soda all day long - we all have dehydration, and you have it too.
Go drink a glass of water right now, and then read on.
Method 4: Do some exciting, interesting work.
This method is suitable in a situation where you can not "let go." It is necessary to smash the stuck on chewing "And they, And I, And yes, well, all of them" with something awful, even if it is stupid and tasteless.
Reading a detective story. Computer game. Hunting and gathering. Snooping and tracking. Trying to uncover someone's secret. Even peering and eavesdropping, damn it.
You must be involved in intrigue, in detective, in the rapid development of events, in hunting, in the game, in courage, in flight.
Your ears should rise and the tail twitch.
You yourself know what can captivate and amuse you. Each has its own individual. Just do not play in this surveillance. Do not harm anyone.
Method 5: Physical Discharge
Everyone is familiar with this method firsthand, but, as usual, everyone doesn’t care.
And I remind you once again that the rapid physical discharge, which includes:
- general cleaning of the apartment (you can - someone else's),
- destruction of trash,
- work in the garden,
- mopping and hand washing
relaxes knotted muscles and relieves stress, frustration is extremely effective. General hand washing even helps to cope with the grief - again, the advice of the old doctor, whom I share with you.
Method 6: Contact with water
Washing dishes is a free session of hypno-psycho-therapy.
The noise of pure running running water removes our fatigue and takes with it all the "dirt", not only domestic.
In addition to washing dishes, there is a well-known classic: take a bath, take a shower, go to the bathhouse, go early in the morning or in the evening - swim in the sea, on the river, on the lake, in the spring.
Refresh yourself, in short.
Method 7: Positive reframing of a stressful event
So much has been written about positive reframing (including me) that I don’t want to repeat myself.
Just give an example:
“It’s good that it happened that I’m not going anywhere this summer!” Finally, I look like an English language course, a fitness class, and even a self-development course! When else would I allow myself such a “useless” luxury? Yes, and in summer there is a low season everywhere and there are some discounts around. So also save! ”
Method 8: It could be worse, others even harder
You are not satisfied with the outcome of the event? Imagine that there could be a worse outcome.
Imagine how bad some people around you are.
If you master this art and stop turning your nose at this strategy, then you will not need any psychotherapy at all.
Method 9: Laughter kills all terrible and terribly important
The mockery, the decline, the vulgarization of something inflated and important is an ancient recipe for human culture, ranging from the Neolithic. Thanks to grandfather Bakhtin for his term “carnival-laughter culture”. Read, ask.
Or watch one episode about Spongebob's Square Pants Adventure. When he was terribly afraid to speak at a school seminar, the clever squirrel gave him super glasses. Wearing these glasses, Sponge Bob saw all the students and the teacher ... in their underpants. That was funny! True, with laughter, he never read his report.
And what were the students' truselya .. Mmm ...
Method 10: Score to 10
Just read up to ten. Slow.
Controlling your breaths in and out. For myself, not out loud.
This is a recommendation of doctors and sports trainers.
Method 11: Cry
Crying relieves stress. With toxic fluid, the toxic substances that are formed under the influence of stress hormones leave the body.
You can not cry about his - come up with a pitiful theme and deliberately cry over it.
Method 12: Verbalize all that is in the soul
Method 10: Score to 10
Pronunciation or verbalization is the vestment of a vague “something” in clear words. However, the great thing. And even better - write it all down on paper, write a long letter.
Just do not send it anywhere!
Keep yourself these methods and use them to calm.
