As humans, we suffer from many things. For example, we may suffer from quickly losing patience and not being able to keep our patience. However, whenever we take care of a loved one who may be suffering from something severe, such as Alzheimer’s, not losing our patience and controlling our anger is extremely vital. Today, we will be looking at a few things you can do when you feel like you are on the verge of losing patience with a loved one. Of course, there are many things you can do, but we will be showing you things we feel work best!
Go out for a run
If you feel like you are on the verge of yelling at your loved one, you won’t be thinking about stopping yourself at that moment. The best thing to do at that moment is to go outside and run for a while. When we run, we use the energy we have built from getting mad at our loved ones, releasing it positively. Of course, doing other exercises such as jumping jacks, push-ups, or even curl-ups can help remove the anger we may have built up. You should always avoid showing the slightest hint of anger, as our loved ones who suffer from Alzheimer’s need our love more than anything else.
Breathe in; Breath out
No, we are not saying to sit down and do complete yoga. However, you should sit down and start to breathe in and out. The best way to do this exercise is to breathe in with your nose and breathe out with your mouth. This allows you to release energy without harming anyone. Breathing in and out will also allow your mind to cool down. This will allow you to analyze whether it is worth losing patience and screaming at someone who suffers from a non-treatable disease. Remember, the goal should always be to release the anger you may have into ways that can not hurt anyone.
