5 Things To Do When Everything Is Annoying

5 Things To Do When Everything Is Annoying

I’m an overall even-tempered and calmer person, but lately, I have noticed that I have become more irritable and I sometimes tend to get easily annoyed by little things nowadays. Sometimes even the smallest things are enough to drive me crazy and as a result, I end up saying mean stuff or behaving badly under the influence of those angry emotions. In retrospect, I always regret and feel really stupid for behaving like that.

I guess, we all have our days of irritability when we feel like everyone is out to get us and make us really annoyed. However, staying angry at everyone or yelling or slamming doors, cabinet doors and drawers won’t help you or anyone around you. In fact, it may even aggravate your annoying mood. It becomes important to let go of your annoyed mood before it leads to more bad behaviors which will ultimately affect your relationships.

Try to be more mindful and make conscious efforts to calm yourself down whenever you feel extremely irritable and annoyed. You will need to let go of all the negative vibes. Sometimes it is essential to take a step back and relax for a moment and find some peace of mind. 

Below are some ways that will help you to get rid of your annoying mood and get back on track again with some positive vibes.

1.Sit back and spend some time alone.

Stay quiet for some time and don’t do anything. Get some ‘me time’. Don’t snap at anyone. Hold the urge to spill your frustration at people around you. When you’re annoyed, you tend to snap at other people, ending up even more annoyed than before. Being alone for some time will also help you to get some perspective and you will probably realize that you were overthinking things and the situation can be handled in a better way. 

2. Drink water and eat something healthy.

Water helps with anxiety and calms you down. So drink plenty of water. Also, eat something healthy. Sometimes hunger can make you irritable and eating something nutritious will stabilize your mood. Grab a fruit or cook some fresh vegetables or eat a salad whenever you feel really annoyed by everything around you.
Keep fruits like bananas and apples handy (known to improve mood and make you happier) and whenever you feel like you’re losing your temper, take a time-out and quickly fuel yourself up.

3. Stretch.

It’s super relaxing. Just try the basic moves. Stretching releases muscle tension and increases blood circulation making you feel better than before. You really don’t have to do complex poses, just raise your hands all the way up and then all the way down (as far as you can go) and then move your arms rightwards and leftwards. 
Another move which I really like is a basic quad stretch- Just take the right foot out to the side and pull the left leg up with your left hand and stretch gently while leaning slightly to the right. Repeat on the other side. 
Stretching takes really little time but the effects are hugely beneficial.

4. Get going.

Go to the nearest park or a mall. Get yourself a smoothie or a shake and relax for a moment. A change of scenery will help your mind to relax and freshen up your mood. I usually take out my bike and go for a ride around my neighborhood; it helps me to clear my mind of all the unnecessary thoughts that were making me feel annoyed and miserable.

5.Vent, but in a healthy way.

Start exercising and let out all the aggression. Or clean your house, organize your closet to divert all your negative energy into something productive. Put your mood to some good use. I really find this method super helpful, it just really helps me to channel all my frustration into something good. The result- improved mood and clean room as a bonus.

So the next time you feel extremely annoyed and bothered by even the little things around you, try implementing these 5 tips and I’m sure you will find your mood improved.
