- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with frustration at the center and then list or put around it all the words that come to mind associated with it. With that list, put next to each a moment where you found yourself frustrated. With the words from your lists write a story that removes frustration from the picture.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about frustration and as you allow them to flow, see where they take you. If it’s a specific event that keeps repeating itself or if it’s a repetitive feeling, write them down and come back to them to take a deeper look at your whys.
