How to deal with your COVID emotion

Can this be true?  Is there some light at the end of the COVID tunnel?  This is the perfect time to reflect on the effect that this pandemic has had on our emotions.  Not only has it caused us anxiety and stress, it has also generated anger. 

Anger is a natural emotion when you are feeling threatened.  You’re like a fox in a box that is trying to escape, particularly when you’re not feeling like you are in the captain's seat and feeling like your accepting unwanted changes.  The problem with anger is that it can snowball.  It takes on a life of its own and it generates its own energy. It can all too easily spiral out of control.   But what is the best thing to do with all that anger.  There are lots of studies that show a real impact on cardiovascular function due to the effects of anger. 

So, what’s the best way to handle anger?

  • Recognise when your emotions start heating up.  Most people repress anger because they’re not aware of how they’re feeling.
  • Say it out loud why you are angry.  Do it slowly and in soft tones.  Getting outwardly aggressive and angry increases your heart rate and blood pressure much more than people that speak slowly and softly.
  • Make a list of everything you might do to deal with the problem that is triggering your anger.  Rank the solutions in order of priority.
  • If you’re angry a lot, make sure you make rest your number one prerogative.  This will help you regulate the rollercoaster of emotions.
  • Ask yourself, “what could I be grateful for?”  This is the question that has the power to change our lives.  Why?  Because you cannot be angry and grateful at the same time.  Gratitude is the antidote.  When gratitude appears anger disappears.
