Spend time with your close family members or friends or someone that can provide good company who will support you, listen and will not judge you. Social time is generally useful for mood regulation.

The problem may seem obvious; however discussing it may help you discover some issues like specific anxieties or low self- esteem. Frustration can build anxiety and tension, which can have harmful effects on our sleep cycle, mood and our general body chemistry.

Try to relax and let go of the feelings stirred up by frustration through some soothing activities such as baking, going for a walk, reading a book or taking a bath; these activities can help change your mood and your body chemistry from tense to calm.

Frustration usually gives you the feeling that you lack meaning or purpose, and you can fight this by keeping a log of all your achievements. If you have trouble recognizing your achievements, get a family member or a friend to help you come up with your accomplishments of which you are proud.

Exercise can relieve stress and tension resulting from frustration; try jogging and walking in a natural environment if possible. Take it slow if you are not used to exercising so you do not feel exhausted.
If you cannot take an exercise break, you can take instead a shorter break for meditation or deep breathing.

Frustration can cause severe lack of motivation or apathy, and this can result in failing to meet your goals or spending hours in activities that are neither enjoyable nor productive. If this description fits, you need to remove needless distractions to take charge of your attention. Turn off the TV, your phone and other electronic devices, clear your work area of all unnecessary items and set your own deadlines to finish your goals.
