Do you feel like #detoxing?
Do other people's #opinions annoy you?
What about #selfies?
Perhaps the weather is at fault.
Certainly free to air TV must push your buttons.
I'm not sure it's even possible to avoid this state (#ANNOYANCE) for an hour - perhaps this post, meme already mildly annoys you!
Wouldn't it be interesting to delete this emotion for a week and see what happens. I suspect the impact would be profound.
So here's my crazy game plan, maybe you'd like to give it a go.
A lifetime of stimulus and automatic response is difficult to rewire, but perhaps an early awareness warning signal can allow us to catch the annoyance thought early and reframe it.
The reframe: 'being annoyed is WEAK'
Not a difficult belief to buy in to. A new thought response to a typical annoying trigger, for instance a polarising comment completely at odds with your world view... 'that's interesting!'
It actually is, interesting that is, to note how quickly our annoyance abates when reframed.
The world reflects our petty biases. Observing behaviour without judgement is an art, that I suspect can be crafted....I guess the next 7 days will reveal something :)
