How To Be Less Emotional If Your Team Lost In World Cup

How To Be Less Emotional If Your Team Lost In World Cup

Your team just lost in World Cup.  You are devastated.  Now what?  Here is a list that will help you be less emotional after your team lost in World Cup.

1. Smile

This may sound ridiculous and you may wonder how is it even possible to smile after your team lost in World Cup, but just do it.  When you smile, endorphin’s are released, which are a natural pain reliever and known to reduce stress.  Even if you fake a smile, if the muscles in your face move like you are smiling, your brain will think you are smiling and release those endorphin’s.  You should give it a try.

2. Take Deep Breathes Through Your Nose

Nitric oxide is a chemical found in the back of your nose used to open up blood vessels.  When these blood vessels open, your lungs get a surge of oxygen.  When your lungs get a surge of oxygen you instantly feel happier.  Does it get any easier than this?  Take very large deep breathes through your nose.  You will get that surge of oxygen and will instantly feel better.

3. Watch A Funny Movie

Think back to when you were watching a movie and could not stop laughing.  If your team lost in World Cup you need to change your emotions quickly, and you can do this by watching a funny movie.  For example if you like vintage movies try “Blazing Saddles” or “Airplane”.  If you are in the younger crowd try “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” or “Borat”.  If you do not have access to a movie, try searching YouTube for “funny fails” and watch some of these.  You will be laughing in no time.

4. Take A Walk At The Park

If your team lost in World Cup, get out of your house and take a walk in the park.  Enjoy some peace and tranquility of nature.  If you want to take it to the next level, observe everything during your walk in detail by activating your five senses.  This will put you in the present, and your mind will be at ease without any thoughts of what happened in the past.

5. Work In Your Garden

Go outside and work in your garden.  Your body will reduce the release of the stress hormone cortisol because gardening combines exercise, creativity,  and the serenity of working in nature.  Another added benefit of gardening is you get to work with your hands, and happiness is a side effect of working with your hands.  Reducing stress and adding happiness will ease any pain that reminds you that your team lost in World Cup.

6. Read A Book

A good way to calm your mind is to read a book.  But only if you enjoy reading.  By reading you will be taking your mind away from the fact that your team lost in World Cup.  Make sure you read about subjects that are upbeat, positive, and maybe even funny.

7. Exercise

Most people will tell you if you are feeling emotional, or have any kind of stress, the best thing you can do is exercise.  It only takes five minutes to start feeling the benefits from exercising and you will feel great!  You don’t have to push yourself to the limit either because low to moderate exercise is best for reducing stress and raising your emotions.

You were devastated that your team lost in World Cup.  If you follow these suggestions you will be less emotional and more happy.  It is amazing how quickly your emotions can change.  Even if you try two or three of these techniques, the changes will be very noticeable and you will feel great.  Remember these suggestions and use them anytime you need to add a little happiness to your life.
