How to deal with frustration

Everyone gets angry and frustration is an emotional reaction to the same. Hence it is impossible to avoid frustration altogether. There are, however, ways how to deal with it

Frustration is hard to ignore, especially when you are in your teens and have pressures of school, friends, family, peers, and hormones. Feeling oppressed by the authority of your parents, hurtful experiences from dating and friendships or uncertainty of the future, there are numerable triggers of frustration. However, luckily, there are ways to cope up with it.

Don’t run away

Whenever you feel like nothing seems to be working, sit back, relax and take a closer look. Never try to run away from your feelings of frustration. Acknowledge the fact calmly that you are depressed.

Talk it out

Talking to someone who is close to you will help you feel better and gain a new perspective into why you are feeling frustrated. If not, then you can write down your feelings and read it over and over again to see if there is anything you can do to change things for better.

Let go

You also have to understand that there are certain things which are not under your control. Therefore, it is only wise to accept those things as they are and never fret about them.

Shift your focus

As we know anger and frustration go hand in hand, try to shift your focus as the slightest hint of anger. Shift your focus on small but demanding activities. For example, go for a walk or clean up the mess that you’ve been thinking to do since a long time, cook something or any other activity which will divert your attention for the time being.

Know your accomplishments

Make a list of all your breakthroughs including big and small. When you will realise that you have succeeded in the past, your current burden of frustration will get loosen up a little.

Remember - It is only normal to get frustrated at some point in life, but you should never let your frustrations drive you. Take control of your anger and try to stay positive as much as you can.

Ways to overcome Public Fear

What is Social anxiety or Public fear?

What is Social anxiety or Public fear?

Fear of public speaking is a common form of anxiety which ranges from slight nervousness to paralyzing fear and panic. Many individuals with this fear avoid public speaking situations altogether, or they suffer through them with shaking hands and a quavering voice. But with preparation and persistence, one can overcome this fear.

Nervousness or anxiety in certain situations is normal, and public speaking is no exception. Known as performance anxiety, other examples include stage fright, test anxiety and writer's block. But people with severe performance anxiety that includes significant anxiety in other social situations may have social anxiety disorder. If you can't overcome your fear with practice alone, consider seeking professional help.

How you can control your Public fear:

1. Know your Topic well. The better you understand your topic the fewer mistakes you will make.

2. Get organized in terms of planning out the information you want to present, including any props, audio or visual aids. If possible, visit the place where you'll be speaking and review available equipment before your presentation.

3. Practice your complete presentation several times. Consider making a video of your presentation so you can watch it and see opportunities for improvement.

4. Do some deep breathing before you get to the podium and during your speech. 5. Focus on your material and not on your audience. People mainly pay attention to new information — not how it's presented.

6. Don’t fear a moment of silence. Even if it's longer, it's likely your audience won't mind a pause to consider what you've been saying. Just take a few slow, deep breaths.

7. Recognize your success by giving yourself a pat on the back after finishing your presentation or speech. Everyone makes mistakes. Look at any mistakes you made as an opportunity to improve your skills.
