A key aspect of frustration is that it takes you away in a different timeline. It makes you ponder what you are going to do in the future and how the “failed attempt” will affect your future. Similarly, frustration also makes you think about the past. It makes you question yourself as to why you did and what you could have done better. In short, it keeps on nagging you.

Snap out of the past and future time zone. Get back into the reality. What you do in the present is more important than what happened in the past or what will happen in the future. You can overcome this sort of frustration by doing two things. One of them is to control your breathing. Take longer breaths and inhale through your nose and exhale through your mouth. This calms down your body. Another thing to do is to focus on the things around you. Look at the scene out the window, the people around you. Concentrate on your surroundings to come back to the present.
