You probably had bad days: you didn't hear the alarm clock, you doused yourself with coffee, missed the bus, or stepped on your foot in the elevator. Throwing open the doors of your favorite enterprise, instead of a friendly greeting you mutter: "What do you all want from me?" Here it is, the final growl of growing irritation and quite a standard reaction. But there are people who lose their temper before reaching the elevator, bus and coffee. They "break" already from the sound of the alarm clock or even break the alarm clock itself.

Increased irritability is too strong an emotional reaction to anything. And its strength is inadequate for the given situation. For example, if you step on your foot: if everything is fine with your nerves, accept the apology and forget about what happened. And if "the nerves are naughty", the culprit will be "a mare who does not look at her feet."

Irritation comes into our life from its first moments, filled with bright light and the voices of doctors, and follows us until our last breath. However, someone is in control of himself, and someone is completely unable to control himself. An "explosive" condition can be one of the symptoms of neurosis, endocrine system diseases, or a sign of hormonal changes (for example, during pregnancy). Typical sources of increased irritability are lack of sleep, city noise, lack of fresh air, crowded transport, poor living conditions, traffic jams, chronic illnesses, calluses, and uncomfortable clothes and shoes. We carry all big and small troubles with us, like a sack of cobblestones, into which "well-wishers" throw something every now and then. And the heavier the burden, the sharper the reaction to the next stimulus.

What to do? Keeping emotions in oneself is like living on a volcano - sooner or later there will be an eruption; but to break down is not the best way out. Try to reduce the number of stressful situations, and be sure to throw out the irritation that has already arisen, but in a safe direction. A few art therapy exercises can help ease a heavy burden.

Exercise # 1: Property Inventory

You are surrounded by many irritants, they create a real mess in the inner world. By making a list, you put everything on the shelves, it becomes easier to interact with the "property". You can deal with the accumulated problems one by one and eliminate most of them. In addition, the very process of "inventory" reduces emotional stress: you transfer irritation to paper, gaining a distance from which you can see a lot of new in the sore old.

You will need:

A sheet of paper, a pen, green and red markers, focus on current problems.

  • 1. Make a list of what annoys you at the moment. Write down whatever comes to your mind: annoying little things and bigger problems. The husband does not twist the tube of toothpaste, the salary was delayed, the neighbor loudly slams the door.
  • 2. When the list is ready, clarify your feelings about each item - offensive, painful, scary, envious, spiteful …
  • 3. With a green felt-tip pen, mark the items that you are able to change, write down how you can do it. Mark in red what you cannot influence.
  • 4. Make a plan for resolving your problems and find a way to accept the irreconcilable reality. Why should you be angry about the bad weather if the rain doesn't end? Connect logic and a sense of humor, try self-hypnosis. Think about the benefits of the current circumstances and be sure to thank them for these bonuses. Agree that gratitude is much more pleasant than resentment or anger.

Exercise number 2: "Soothing bracelet"

Useful knowledge can disappear from your head, especially in stressful situations. It would be nice to get an accessory that will always "support" in difficult times. Some people, like King Solomon, wear rings with the inscription in Latin "everything passes - and this will pass." You can give your jewelry any important meaning.

You will need:

Any materials suitable for making a bracelet.

  • 1. Increased irritability is always associated with dissatisfaction with your life. Sit in a relaxed atmosphere, breathe deeply and ask yourself the question, "What am I missing to find peace?" Perhaps you need a little more self-confidence or humility, a willingness to accept the world as it is.
  • 2. Remember a moment in life when everything suited you, when you were happy and content with life. Enjoy the memory, remember your state.
  • 3. Now try to symbolize what you felt. You can limit yourself to one large button or create something similar to a colorful Indian decoration - do as your inspiration tells you.
  • 4. Come up with a key phrase to quickly return to your resource state. "I accept the world as it is", "I am safe", "And this will pass", "Vasya first confessed his love to me", "I became a mother."
  • 5. Put on jewelry and refer to it when you feel irritation creeping in. Touch the bracelet with your hand, look at it and charge yourself with pleasant emotions.

Exercise number 3: "Plasticine riot"

Modeling is one of the most interesting art therapy techniques. With the help of plastic materials, you can create images of your unpleasant emotions, resentment, irritation, anxiety and manipulate them, turn them into desired feelings and emotions.

You will need:

Plasticine or clay.

  • 1. Take any plastic material - plasticine, clay or even a piece of dough. Imagine your irritation in the form of some kind of volumetric image and blind it.
  • 2. You can admire the result. After all, here it is, irritation, not inside, but outside. It is in your hands, and at any moment you can stop its existence.
  • 3. Don't feel sorry for him! Has it already made you think about something and take some action to solve your problems? Thank you all! You can crush it, take it apart into small pieces or “melt” it into a state of peace and serenity.

Our lives are rife with reasons for irritation and stress. It would be great to find a pill that would relieve us of this unpleasant feeling once and for all. But there is no such medicine. Just like playing sports, exercises to combat irritation should be done regularly. Get into a new habit of having a nightly unloading ritual. They came to themselves after work, stuck thunderclouds, and then remade them into a warm sun or into pies with apples. And the soul is good, and in the family there is peace and quiet.
