Not/Do When Raging

Tips That Will Help

I’ve been gaming for over five years and I’ve noticed that I don’t rage anymore and I used to be raging soo much, I used to smash walls and swear a lot. If you come across like this try these tips, they helped me and I had a test and they do help.

(Not to Do) Smashing

When gamers rage their first instinct is to smash anything around them. When you start to feel angrier with your game, take a break and take 10 deep breaths and think “relax.” If it doesn’t work just take a break for 30mins and watch a movie or go for a walk.

(To Do) Breaks

Every hour, take a fifteen-minute break or more, so your mind can cool off for minutes because it will be exhausted after seeing to much blue light. Go for walks and drink water. Make your mind feel fresh and relaxed.

(To Do) Game Switching

When gamers lose matches to many times it gets frustrating and it becomes to the point where it’s annoying and will cause rage. So when you feel your getting angry try switching to another game or game mode. It could be the cause were your losing, practice first before going into a real game.

(To Do) Do Exercise

Exercising will improve your mood and will make you feel happier, going for a little jog will help too, it will keep your mind stable and relaxed. Also you’ll get fit.

Tips

  • Tell yourself to calm down. Slowly repeat gentle phrases to yourself like “take it easy,” “cool off,” or whatever works for you.
  • Force yourself to leave the situation. Take a time out, walk away, and avoid coming back too soon. Take a walk or go for a run.
  • Use visualization to calm down. Close your eyes and picture yourself in your favorite place.
  • Count to 10 (or 50… or 100) if you feel like you’re about to do or say something harmful. It’s a quick, easy way to separate yourself mentally from the situation.
  • Splash some cold water on your face.
  • Slow down and focus on your breathing. Conscious breathing involves taking slow, deep breaths in through your nose, and slowly out through your mouth.
  • Phone a friend. Do you have a supportive friend or family member who can lend an ear and calm you down?
  • Try to replace negative, angry thoughts with positive, rational ones. Even if you’re feeling upset, remind yourself that getting angry isn’t going to fix the way that you’re feeling.

What now?

Make time for yourself to de-stress and focus on an activity that makes you happy, whether that’s reading, spending time with friends, or whatever else. Getting enough exercise weekly can also help alleviate stress.

Practice relaxation techniques such as listening to soothing sounds or songs, or doing meditation or yoga.

Keep a journal or log about your anger. Record the feelings you experienced, what factors contributed to your anger and how you responded to it. Try to write down the thoughts that were going through your mind and the time, and then reflect on these instances and see if there’s any sort of pattern to your anger.
