I can't...I'm naturally uptight and get tense and irritated with people a lot....like say if someone takes ages to tell a story, if someone talks to me while I'm watching TV, if someone randomly asks to see me and I'm not ready, if I can't get my hair to look good, if I have had one hour less sleep. It's really draining and I really want to make a resolution to be more laid back and positive. Any tips?
I'm just like that and tbh, I don't think I'm ever gonna change, I just think it's part of my personality. Of course there's a difference between uptight and plain intolerant. You can be uptight yet tolerant of other people - that's something to think about perhaps.
I get like this too, I think it helps to take a step back and just zone everything out.
Smoke a joint. Blast some music. Then when your vision gets back to normal, play call of duty modern warefare 2. Very stress relieving.
There's nothing blasting a round of bullets into some dudes chest and if your good an extra 50 points for a headshot.
You can't get anymore chill than that.
Try getting a massage. That works for me especially when I'm tired or if I'm annoyed with someone. Also, people who work there are generally good listeners.
