So Angry First Thing In the Morning


So, my morning didn’t start out too peacefully. I was forced out of bed and DID NOT appreciate the circumstances. I got mad and everyone around me knew it.

Grumble, grumble, grumble, seethe, seethe, seethe.

I did not like the way I was feeling so I went in search of ways to diffuse the justified (to me) anger.

First step was to do a google search on mindfulness and anger. Came up with this article, which was helpful for me, but I still felt the charge of it.

  • How to Use Mindfulness to Cope with Anger
  • Still feeling the charge. Hmmm… okay, off to Youtube to see if I could find something there. EFT usually helps discharge the energy of the emotion. First search was on FasterEFT and anger. First one I looked at didn’t really fit well but this one, even though there was no tapping, was interesting to listen to.

    Put out the fire of anger or it’ll destroy you

    One more search on Eft anger revealed a video by Brad Yates (I LOVE his tapping style!) that helped loosen the hold that anger had on me. I actually started laughing at the absurdity of it all somewhere in the middle. Ahhhh, a much better feeling place. 🙂

    NOW I can start the day off on the right foot, without all this negative chatter in my brain.

    🙂 It’s kind of funny, my Headspace app just popped up this message:

    Life is sometimes difficult. We know this for a fact, and yet still we resist thought things when they happen, some how thinking they ‘shouldn’t be’. Why is that?

    Just another way to think about all the things that “mess up” our mood. “It is what it is”, is a good mantra to live by, it would seem. So much less stress in that way of thinking.

    I’ve come to the conclusion, that I won’t be doing this everyday, but as I remember. 😀 I am always grateful for many things through out the day, and most of them can not be captured on film LOL

    I’m on day 33 of the Discovery Series series.

    I’ve rediscovered my Headspace app and am loving it 🙂  Great way to get into the mindfulness meditation habit. 

    Meditation Does You Good

    (Day 7 #365Grateful – Dear daughter went out to Whole Foods and sent this pic to me with the following message “These greens are ZEN. Damn they must meditate a lot”. :D)

    So my goal was to meditate every day for 30 days, so far I am doing pretty well. Everyone in my house knows that when the guest bedroom door is closed, they should not come in an bother me. Most of the time, this edict works. 😀

    I use the Insight Timer App to track my meditation times.

    Meditation Success

    Some times, I use the guided meditations from a variety of people from in the app or I play my Abraham Meditations in the back ground and just run the timer over top of it. It all works really well.

    I think, for me, it is having a very positive effect on how the day goes for me. Today was a particularly hectic day with lots of unknown outcomes. I can honestly say that with all the interactions I had (a new doctor, phone calls and tweets to bcbsnc, dealing with cell phone issues) turned out very well. The stress didn’t rattle me at all. 🙂 Can’t wait to see where I am when I get to 30 days!
