If you tend to get frustrated easily or if you take your frustration out on others, here are some mantras you can say to help calm yourself down:

  • Create a phrase that will help you see this problem or frustration as a smaller problem, such as, “In the grand scheme of things, this is not so important,” or “This is not a life or death situation.”
  • Or, create some reasoning behind why you are frustrated, such as, “Everything happens for a reason,” or “I will learn something from this.”
  • Another mantra you can say to yourself is, “I accept that I am frustrated, and I am allowing myself to feel this emotion.” By acknowledging how you feel in a calm manner, you’ll stop fighting the emotion and learn how to just be with it.
