Long work hours, the strain of both personal and professional life, and the daily commotion at work may sometimes cause tension, resentment, and rage to cloud one’s judgment. It also keeps us from appreciating the beauty that surrounds us. Our physical health suffers as a result of this mental congestion in addition to its effects on our overall wellbeing. Therefore, it’s essential to cleanse our brains and free ourselves from the bonds of anger if we want to really enjoy life.
Acharya Ahimsa Vishwa Bharti’s founder and president, Dr. Lokesh Muni, offers some practical strategies for controlling anger and maintaining mental clarity.
Rather of ignoring or repressing your anger, channel it into positive energy. See your anger as a raw resource that can be transformed into something constructive. Use this strong feeling to express yourself via writing, painting, or even physical activity. This change will promote personal development in addition to letting go of stored up energy.
Laughter is a very effective weapon against rage. Make a playlist of humorous music or films that you find relatable to make you chuckle. Play this music and let your rage flare up. Laughing simply breaks the cycle of anger and shifts your focus to happiness and ease.
Use the emotional associations you have with certain colors to help you control your rage. When you’re upset, shut your eyes and picture the color blue, which is often associated with serenity. Imagine breathing a calming blue light and expelling a flaming red of fury as you take long breaths. This novel color-based affirmation may assist in reprogramming your mind’s reaction to things that make you angry.
With time, these techniques become instinctive, enabling you to rid your mind of resentment and cultivate a positive connection with both the outside world and yourself. Although mental detoxification is a journey, the benefits are great: a life filled with peace and real connection.
