So you have just taken that beat that has cost you the win of a lifetime.

How do you calm down?

Mine is really simple (and linked to the work I do that helps us calm down when I worked with abused children).

I know that if someone puts a beat on me it is because I played the hand better, so I simply type in the chat box 'that's poker' if someone responds to it or just say it outloud if they don't.

This works in an immediate calming effect and is such a simple technique for me.

What works for you?

What works for you?


im not doing anything to be honest. its the age. the older i get the less i get upset about anything Smile ...with exceptions. back the days i could of reach through my monitor and choke some guys, but now..
aging is like smoking every day a big joint Shock one day, when you get alzheimer disease, you wont be angry about anything, or at least you will forget it very quickly Big Smile

ok it doenst work all the time, so i just distracct my self from poker by watching something funny on TV or by doing something else.

I smoke a joint before, after and during poker. This works fine and is not to be recommended for people with/or can cause:

Depression
Mental health problems
psychosis
schizophrenia and bipolar disorder

Regular use of the drug has appeared to double the risk of developing a psychotic episode or long-term schizophrenia

amen.

please don't smoke if you have some problems, some people think the earth is flat because it's on youtube.

same goes for alcohol, don't drink too much if you have mental issues, you really can get psychoses by alcohol only. Weed intensifies this even more!

Know yourself and don't do drugs, let the sober people get drunk and they will be on your level. hahaha

peace! Agree

Well, nothing can calm us instantly when we're really frustrated. Sometimes you just have to do some boxing training or hit a pillow or something, let that frustration out. It's really a healthy thing (some may disagree though), as long as you don't let it out on other people Blink

I think breathing exercises, physical exercise and changing activity are the best tricks though. Basically, focus on something else, not the thing that made you frustrated in the first place because it will most likely frustrate you more to think about it over and over. Otherwise, time is the cure for almost everything. Blink

Prescription Drugs mixed in with a pack of smokes I have tried smoking a joint but does not help have never done any illegal drugs best advice is to go for a Jog or Power Walk and break a sweat.

The one thing that calms me down is to deeply focus on the game I am playing. Remembering of course that it is merely as a result of probability that the unfortunate event took place. There's not much you can do about probability and especially when you add it to moronic donkeys who don't understand the associated odds! LOL

Nothing seems to calm me down. I am angry/frustrated practically all the time, even when I am asleep. I have been trying to channel my anger/frustration into power/productivity.
