Getting Calm to Get Inspired

By Dr. Jack Singer | Anger Management , Stress Management

Everyone has days when “inspired” is the last word they would use to describe their mood. Not even close, in fact! The good news is that while inspiration cannot be forced, there are some simple tips to follow that can result in you getting calm enough to call inspiration your friend again.

Where to Start

Calm your mind.  Worrying over your rotten mood or lack of inspiration is just going to make things worse, so the first thing to do is to just relax. I know that sounds like it is not something that you can just command yourself to do, but you can find ways to make it occur naturally.

  1. Breathing. Dr. Andrew Weil offers 3 breathing exercises that will help you achieve a relaxed and clear state of mind.
  2. Keep both your mind and your eyes open. Take a look at the world around you – the people, the trees, buildings, nature and everything else as well. All these things can be doors to inspiration, and you should attempt to look at them all without judgment or resentment, calmly appreciating and paying attention to everything.
  3. Meditation. Those who find the time to meditate regularly often find inspiration much more easily.
  4. Anger Management. If you are easily roused to anger or find yourself chronically angry, check out my 4 CD set How to Permanently Master Your Anger – A 4 CD set that is based in state of the art research in Anger Management, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Clinical Hypnotherapy. You will learn easy-to-master skills that you can put to use right away to ward off anger-producing triggers and live a productive, healthy and happy life, with complete control of your emotions.

Adopting Anger Management Skills that Work

By Dr. Jack Singer | Anger Management

“Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.” ~  Ambrose Bierce

There are many, many positive techniques and skills related to anger management. Since anger management seems to affect so many people in society, it is imperative to design and create techniques, teach skills, provide counseling and provide appropriate care and support. Since anger issues affect individuals from childhood to adulthood, obviously it is necessary to teach anger management skills that work for every age group. For the person who is dealing daily with anger problems, it is important to learn skills that will be effective in coping.

One skill that tends to help people deal with negative emotions is acupressure. This technique used as an anger management skill is achieved by tapping or rubbing the body. Using this skill, briskly massaging the body when feeling tense and upset, causes an individual’s energy to move around their body which results in relaxation. An anger management skill or techniques known as the Emotional Freedom Technique of EFT can be combined with acupressure to fight against negative emotions. EFT works to balance the brain hemispheres to help an individual admit to their problem and find forgiveness. This anger management skill would be very beneficial in helping a person release feelings of anger and relax.

Adopting positive anger management skills might involve keeping a journal. When an individual writes about the situations which upset them, it helps to get the negative thoughts and emotions out of their head. By journaling about feelings and emotions, a person is able to rid their minds of unhealthy thinking and put them on paper. This anger management activity would provide specific details and perhaps triggers which usually set the individual off. Being able to read and review reactions to situations, a person might be capable of making changes in their behavior.

When considering anger management skills, there’s one which is quite easy to adopt. Removing themselves from a threatening situation might eliminate the problem. If a person realizes they have difficulties controlling their temper, they might consider staying away from situations which may cause heated arguments. If a person has a regular pattern of lashing out during specific conversations, they ought to avoid those incidents. Some people who have anger issues seem to go looking for a reason to get upset. If aiming to adopt anger management skills, these people should attempt to change this way of thinking. Instead of going to the problem, they ought to run from the problem.

Adopting anger management skills that work is definitely an essential step when striving to cope with feelings of rage and anger. There are many suggestions and recommendations offered on Internet sites related to anger management skills. It would certainly help to visit these sites and read the information and advice. It is unreasonable to think that a person will use all of the anger management skills suggested. However finding one that works may mean trying each of them at least once. When an individual is attempting to gain control and eliminate the negative feelings normally dictating their life, exploring anger management skills is necessary to find a technique or skill which works for them.

Until next time, this is Dr. Jack Singer.
