A slightly edited comment from Jen on ADDerworld
“-emotional control, frustration, outbursts….ya ADD fits in. Not sure if you mean you are having trouble with nervous energy, or sleep, or at the moment of frustration…..
Here are some random suggestions we use at our house.
If you notice stress building….write it down, melatonin, focus on senses….smell, touch, taste to activate your brain for something else, when you are concentrating on something, it uses a different area of your brain, giving you more control.
Eat something. Everything is worse when you’re blood sugar is low.
We light candles, put on soothing music or sounds (water running, rain)
Talk to someone and identify whats at the root of your stress. Write it down in your “Stress Journal”.
I have done this for 40 years. I get wired up, can’t stop thinking, worrying, so I write it so I can save it for later.
I put it down anyway I want. (It’s amazing what I write sometimes.) This is what I use for sleep. I give myself permission to leave it there in the journal. I reassure myself/son that it will be okay, then I visualize something. I try and remember every detail of a favorite whatever.
Maybe something will fit for you.”
