5 Ways To Move Out Of Anger Zone

Published

on

​Anger, what a destructive emotion. It is an intense, fast-moving emotion. It has the ability to destroy what was once good. It has the ability to destroy a long-term happy relationships.

Usually, we feel angry if there is a threat or harm to our wellbeing. Which signifies that certain actions need to be taken to stop or prevent what’s happening. It also signifies that some value has been violated.

When you are angry, you are probably making sure you safeguard yourself from further insult. Imagine someone accusing you of what you know nothing about. How happy will you feel?

We have in one time or the other gotten angry at someone or something. Sometimes we yell at each other.

But a mistake some of us make is, we try to suppress their anger. Anger is meant to be put to use. It shouldn’t be buried.

Denying anger doesn’t neutralize it. Little did we know that chronic unresolved anger, whether turned inward or express ineffectively, can lead to high cholesterol levels and self-destructive health habits.

Anger is never a comfortable energy to experience. The key lies in learning how to use potent energy that anger brings to resolve transgressions and prevent them from happening again.

To be effective you need to use your anger in a way that assures you that people know what you expect of them and that they can’t cross the limits you set to protect your wellbeing and values.

Here is how

1. Find effective anger role models. If you grew up in a dysfunctional family where expressing anger was dangerous or where you never saw anyone express anger productively, you need to find some anger role models. Look into the lives of people you admire and see how they express their angers.

2. Direct the energy you are feeling into verifying for yourself that indeed there is harm to your well-being.
If there is no harm done, would you rather be right or get on with your life?

3. Direct that energy towards what you want accomplished. Do you want people to stop doing something? Do want them to rectify something? Just what action do you want them to take?

4. Express your anger in such a way the other party (ies) will understand. Don’t let it get the better part of you.

5. Take a deep breathe and critically analyze your anger before you express it.

As Epictetus put it, “If you do not wish to be prone to anger, don’t feed the habit.”

You may have to make your standards moderate and one your coworkers will be comfortable with. Deal with life the way it is, not the way you wished it would be. Because getting angry because life isn’t going the way you want it to is a real waste of time and energy.


How have you been dealing with anger in the past?

“No Body makes it to the Forbes magazine list of Richest and Influential people through their savings”

Before you take up that Nursing job in the Government or private hospital, ask yourself:

– Would my vision of being an holistic change agent be given an edge if I start working in the government/Private setting?

– Would I have the luxury of time to pursue both formal and Informal Education Programme while working with the government or private setting?

– Would the environment and mindset of people working in this setting be a boost to me or detrimental to my career vision?

Ask your self these questions and critically examine whatever you are doing now and see if your dreams are been captured in your activities

The rich and impactful Nurses I know who are blazing the Trail in the areas of Advocacy, Politics, Media, Cooperate organisations, Research, and Education are not working in any private or Government establishments.

Mention 5 Nurses that you look up to in the government hospital, and I would show you 20 Nurses whom you need to be under their Mentorship.

The sole aim of this article is never to discredit any Nurse working in the Private or Government setting as they have been exceptional over the years in delivering quality health services through International best practices.

But as we all know, not everyone can function optimally in the Clinical Setting as well as NGOs and Cooperate and Media organisations. Nursing is multifaceted and has diverse areas which directly or indirectly captures our dreams and visions.

Aghedo Princewill
To all the Nurses out there who have a burning passion to be a change agent in the profession, I indulge you to think twice before taking any job offered to you as the later results of this decision usually includes:

¶ Poor career growth

¶ Little or no room to attain more formal and informal education

¶ Job dissatisfaction that in turn tempts you to leave the profession

¶ Under utilisation of your potentials which gradually leads to the death of it

¶ No accolades for most of the Job well done

¶ Wearing out and mental stress because of the poor management of manpower in these settings.

For your Dreams and Vision to get a boost as a Nurse, kindly follow some of the tips below:

1) Join an Organization or Association that captures your career Goals and Vision.

2) Involve in more volunteering Jobs as this would increase your exposure and help broaden your horizon in your scope of thinking

3) Create a Niche for yourself

4) Be Under mentorship that allow you to grow even beyond your mentor, but remember it is gradual.

5) Always remember that survival is a lifetime trail and your involvement in these activities ideally don’t cost you much even when you have a lot to gain

6) Believe In Yourself

Know today that you have all the ability to achieve your dreams. Be resourceful and never doubt your abilities. CONCIOUSLY BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

7) Work very hard and Smart in all of your pursuit.

8) READ: At least one hour daily. The result is that your mind won’t remain the same, you will begin to solve problem others cant solve.

9) Attain certification in Health and Non-Health related courses: This makes you prepared and gives you an edge when an opportunity comes forth.

10) Become an IT Savvy.

Surf the internet effortlessly and be active on most social media handles to connect with like minded individuals and get access to Quality information. Make Google your best friend.

11) Speak positively always about the profession you wish to change as this gives you the consciousness to improve lives and stay on track.

“You have to be intentional in other to be Successful as success is not a guess work or trial and error pursuit”
