4 Ways to Let Go of Anger

Therese J. Borchard

octopus_drawing__painted_by_glory5641-d3180x1“Holding on to anger,” said the Buddha, “is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”

I don’t know about you, but I feel the venom coursing through my veins when I’m ticked off, tightening all my muscles, activating the sympathetic nervous system to prepare for the gorilla that is not about to attack me, and tagging my amygdala (fear center), saying, “You’re it!”

For me, anger can be a good thing, a sign that I’m alive and I’m invested in this world.

THINGS TO BE AVOIDED DURING RAMADAN

Striving Muslimah

THINGS TO BE AVOIDED DURING RAMADAN

1. Don’t sleep during the day and pray all night. By
doing this you are converting the day into night and
the night into day, which is not the purpose of
fasting.

2. Avoid being lazy and inactive during the day.

3. Don’t waste time playing games during the day.
Rather, please Allah by increasing in your worship of him.

4. Avoid having Iftar parties. Ramadan wasn’t meant to be a food extravaganza.

5. Don’t ask your wife to spend Ramadan in the Kitchen. Eat something light and quick – she isn’t Biryani woman.

6. Spend the last 10 days worshipping Allah rather
than trying to prepare for Eid! A day that is better
than a thousand months is in these last 10 days
You can’t afford to miss this.

7. Don’t stay awake the full night. Your body has a
right over you…
