Emotionality is a characteristic of a person, characterizing 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 manifestation of temperament are impressionability, sensitivity, impulsiveness, etc. The substantive aspects of emotionality reflect phenomena and situations that have special significance for the subject. They are inextricably linked with the core features of the personality, its moral potential: the orientation of the sphere of motivational, worldview, value orientations, etc. Qualitative properties of emotion 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. Dynamic properties of emotionality include features of the appearance, flow and termination of emotional processes and their external expression.
- Emotionality is the immediacy and liveliness of perception.
- Emotionality is the richness and speed of associations.
- 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: Get distracted by anything
This way to relieve the emotional tension is good in cases where you are trapped, cornered and can not escape anywhere. For example, sit on the glider and listen to your boss, internally boiling. It is impossible to escape, but ... Distraction while contemplating something outsider, neutral and infatuation with this stranger is the best way not to wind yourself over trifles.
For example: "Which, however, Masha manicure ... I wonder how she did it?".
This only works if you yourself understand the benefit of such a strategy - do not look at muck, do not listen to muck. If you like to boil and climb into disputes - it's your right.
Method 2: Get out of an annoying situation (it's also an emotion-free zone)
Did something make you sad at someone else's birthday? On a picnic? You do not take out any group, public, page in the social network? Do you dream of removing an unpleasant person from your friends list?
So, quickly left the group forever. They blamed a provocateur-debater, a troll, a boor, a fool. They deleted their profile, if that.
Quickly called a taxi (do not pinch, do not pinch) smacked the landlady and rush home - away from the party, away from the barbecue, away from the irritating, emotional zone.
Method 3: Have a drink
Here it is already - the crown recipe of all ingenious therapists, who do not bother with dietary supplements from pharmaceutical corporations.
A glass of water, drunk slowly, stops all known seizures. The first thing that a person is offered, which is struck by something terrible - a glass of water. Drinking water starts the mechanism of self-rehabilitation of the body. Most often, people become ill for two reasons:
- hysteria (sympathetic adrenal crisis in another way),
- not noticed in time dehydration of the body.
Since we do not listen to our body and do not teach the OBV, we drink tea, coffee and soda all day long - we all have dehydration, and you have it too.
Go get a glass of water right now, and then read on.
Method 4: Engage in an exciting, interesting affair
This method is suitable in a situation where you can not "let go." It is necessary to interrupt the jam at the chewing "And they, And I, Oh, well, all of them" with something of a fleeting, even stupid, and insipid.
Reading the detective. Computer game. Hunting and gathering. Sled and tracking. An attempt to reveal someone's secret. Even spying and eavesdropping, damn it.
You should be involved in intrigue, in a detective story, in the rapid development of events, in hunting, in a game, in courage, in flight.
You have to raise your ears and twitch your tail.
You yourself know that you can get carried away and amused. Everyone has his own, individual. Just do not play into this shadowing. Do not hurt anyone.
Method 5: Physical Discharge
With this method everyone knows everything, but, as usual, all the same.
And I again remind you that the rapid physical discharge, which include:
- general cleaning of the apartment (you can - a stranger),
- destruction of trash,
- work in the garden,
- washing of floors and washing with hands
relaxes twisted muscles in the knot and relieves stress, frustration is fantastically effective. General hand washing even helps to cope with grief - again the advice of the old doctor, whom I share with you.
Method 6: Contact water
Washing dishes is a free hypnotherapy-psychotherapy session.
The noise of clean running running water removes our fatigue and carries with it all the "dirt", not just the household.
In addition to washing dishes, there is a well-known classics: take a bath, shower, go to the bath, go early in the morning or evening - swim at the sea, the river, the lake, the spring.
Refresh yourself, in short.
Method 7: Positive stress event reframing
On the positive reframing written so much (including me), that I do not want to repeat myself.
Just give an example:
"How good that it turned out that this summer I'm not going anywhere! Finally, I look like English courses, fitness and self-development courses! Whenever else would I allow myself such a "useless" luxury? And in summer there is always a dead season and around one discount. So I'll save it! "
Method 8: It could be worse, others even harder
Are you 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 cease to turn your nose away from this strategy, then you will not need any psychotherapy at all.
Method 9: Laughter kills all the terrible and terribly important
Deriding, reducing, vulgarizing something inflated and important is an ancient recipe of human culture, starting from the Neolithic. Thanks to grandfather Bakhtin for his term "carnival-laughter culture". Read, ask.
Or watch one episode about the adventures of Sponge Bob Square Pants. When he was afraid to panic at a school seminar, a smart squirrel gave him super-glasses. Wearing these glasses, Sponge Bob saw all the students and the teacher ... in their underpants. That was ridiculous! True, with laughter, he never read his report.
And what were the trusel's teacher ... Mmm ...
Method 10: Account up to 10
Just read up to ten. Slow.
Controlling your breaths and exhalations. About yourself, not out loud.
This is a recommendation of doctors and sports coaches.
Method 11: Cry
Crying relieves stress. With the tear fluid, the body leaves those toxic substances that are formed under the influence of stress hormones.
You can not cry about your own - think up a compassionate topic and especially cry over it.
Method 12: Verbalization of everything that is on the soul
Method 10: Account up to 10
Pronunciation or verbalization is the embedding of a vague "something" into clear words. However, a great thing. Better yet, write it all down on paper, write a long letter.
Just do not send it anywhere!
Save yourself these ways and use them to calm yourself.
