You are always surrounded with many things. Some of these things elate your spirits while others deflate them. One day you are a good performer at work, another time you are the bad one so is the seesaw about life. Crankiness is another name for mood swings that may be caused by a number of internal and external factors. Experts say the best way to manage all these is to know what is happening and choosing to actively contain the crankiness as you go through it. The following are just some of the ways as to how you can get rid of crankiness.
Contain your anger
Anger is one of the emotions that require an art to harness. This emotion as you can tell has a negative and positive side. Literary anger causes you to boil inside when the adrenalin rush is experiences because of a certain trigger. You experience a tensing of muscles during this period perhaps preparing for the ‘fight’. You can take a deep breath when you reach the peak of such boiling. You simple count one to five as you slowly breathe in and then breathe out slowly and you will wonder what happened of your burning anger.
Careful with words
Words pierce and most of the time you end up boiling inside and feeling fussy just because of the words that were spoken in your hearing. In much the same way the words you speak can also elevate the state or tone it down. Therefore a wise thing that you can do to avoid getting into such a situation is to carefully select your words and even the thoughts you have at that moment.
Speak it out
Because you do not live in isolation and crankiness most of the time comes from external encounters talking about it is also a very good idea. So you were wronged or you wronged someone else, this must not matter at that particular time. The opportunity to talk it out will help you release any tension that may be within and having led to such a feeling. In fact one of the remedies to stress and anger is talking it out. At first this may be incoherent and have no objective but it is a powerful way of releasing the tension that can be harmful if ‘bottled’ up inside.
Once the tension inside you has subsided considerably you can find that the talking out is more objective and meaningful and not the shouting march. At this particular moment you can seize the opportunity to express yourself. It feels relaxing and good to talk to someone else may be your confidant about a seemingly difficult situation. Once you release this feelings bottled up inside you will experience a release from the crankiness as well.
Do a workout
Of course there are many other ways on how to get rid of crankiness and all depends on what you prefer and what works for you. Interestingly some people will want to work out vigorously in a burn off process. You may also consider trying the option like where you take a walk or a jog away from the place where the crankiness hits you. It may also be wise to go to the gym where you can sweat it out. Different people react differently in the circumstances that they encounter. What you find appropriate may note be equally applicable to someone else. Therefore the way in which you handle your moods and especially anger can be distinctly different from another person’s method. However, what should count is how effective your approach is.
