‘Don’t lose your temper’……
‘Don’t get angry’…..
‘Don’t be aggressive’…..
Most of us have been told or learnt that when we where kid’s its ‘wrong’ to lose our temper or to be aggressive.
However, what few of us are taught is how to channel our anger & in turn use it through an outlet positively & constructively.
If a child is taught to suppress their emotion & anger, where is the outlet for release?
This is the same for adults, if we can tap into our emotions positively & we can utilise them at the correct time, they can help & fuel us, rather than hinder us.
We ALL have times when it’s ‘just one of those days’……….
You can counter this by consciously planning to use all that frustration, anger, & passion that is no doubt building up inside you throughout the day & put it all into your workout…..
I’m here to tell you that it’s ok to get a little bit pissed off when you train!
ESPECIALLY if you are asking yourself to do something you haven’t done before, or you are aiming to push past previous limitations…..
I’ve wrote about the importance of having fun & banter before in the gym, & I still stand by it, 100%……
…….however if like me, you ever have ‘one of those days’, rather than taking it home with you, letting it grow, or taking it out on others, use it! Use that anger & use that drive to do something positive.
Anger and frustration without direction or focus are very negative & will do nothing but bring you further down, but if you learn to use it & apply it, you can turn it into a positive.
Remember that training, no matter what your goal is, should always provide you with an outlet to channel your energy on the day & give you a therapeutic effect.
Sanity before vanity my friend.
Until the next time,
