Annoyance – 7 Reasons Why Everyone and Everything Annoys You

Annoyance - 7 Reasons Why Everyone and Everything Annoys You
All we can do is control how we react to them.

Annoyance is something that you can’t avoid. Sooner or later, something is gonna piss you off really bad.

Like the philosophy states, you can’t control people’s actions, you can only control how you react to them.

But even still, if you are a person who gets annoyed at the drop of a hat, then that calls for some self examining.

I found a great video on annoyance from the good people over at Brainy Dose. I’ve shared things with them before on different topics, but this really hits the core of daily annoyance and frustration.

The video delves into things that might internally contribute to why you get so pissed off at people in different situations. It definitely made me take a seat and grab a listen.

Did you know that living with daily annoyance can just perpetuate more?

Think about it….

The people that annoy you the most are usually the people you have to interact with on a daily basis. This can make your irritability systemic, causing you to reach for things to deal with it that unknowingly make it worse.

Alcohol and Caffeine Can Cause Annoyance

Both of these culprits can play a huge part in anxiety and moodiness because of the effect they have on your neurotransmitters. This is why your mood can be effected for hours after consumption of either.

You’re Overworked

Another cause of annoyance is being overworked and exhausted. We don’t function properly without a balance of sleep and work. A lot of times this is usually what’s wrong with people when you ask how they’re doing and you get an attitude in return.

It’s important to schedule some “Me” time into your week so you can pause and regroup.

Unhealthy Environment and People

You are the sum total of the people you associate with. This was a hard fact that I had to realize growing up.

The people and environment you spend your time around can have a direct effect on your mood.

If you’re unsure of this, just keep track of how you feel when you’re around certain people, versus how you feel when you’re not around them. That will just about tell you all you need to know.

Issues of the past resurface

There are times when the past creeps back up on you. This is normal so don’t feel bad about it.

Annoyance can be spawned by how you are treated by people past and present. The key is finding the source of the issue.

It’s easier said than done to let a past issue go, but if you don’t at least deal with it, it can keep resurfacing and effecting your present.

Low Testosterone – 8 Habits That Cause It

Low Testosterone - 8 Habits That Cause It
It’s like walking around with a soaking wet log on your shoulders all day.

Low testosterone robs a man of something. It robs him of that natural ability to lunge at what he really wants. Think about when you were a tyke and you had an unstoppable energy and drive.

A drive that kept you flying by the seat of your pants, rushing into any new opportunity there was to meet a girl, take a trip, go out to a club, go to the gym, or hit the basketball court.

This is what you’re missing when you have low testosterone. When your testosterone is low, it can lead to problems such as:

  • decreased muscle mass
  • low sex drive
  • hair loss
  • decreased bone density
  • lack of energy and necessary aggression (standing up for yourself)
  • depressed mood
  • difficulty concentrating
  • moodiness and irritability

Thus, as you age, your testosterone levels will naturally decrease, but that doesn’t mean you should give up. You CAN maintain good testosterone throughout your life as you age, it just requires a little work and adjustment.

What Is The Main Cause Of Low Testosterone? describes the cause of testosterone be:

“Types of testicle damage that can lead to primary hypogonadism include: Physical injury to the testicles: Injury must occur to both testicles to affect testosterone levels. Mumps orchitis: A mumps infection can injure testicles. Cancer treatment: Chemotherapy or radiation can damage testicles.”

Now that would be a more technical commentary than the examples I gave above. But the point is, low testosterone can be brought on by things internal, external, physical and mental.

Style O.G. to the rescue….

Check out this video by one of my favorite YouTube influencers, The Style O.G.

Here he discusses the 8 Bad Habits That Can Lower Your Testosterone.

Habits like…

A lack of sleep

It seems like people’s sleeping habits as a whole are suffering more with the smart phone addictions, socially influenced anxiety and different new forms of drug abuse.

A lack of sleep can effect testosterone levels due to an increase of cortisol levels, lack of focus and long lasting exhaustion.

Increased Stress

Stress is a hard thing to avoid these days. With smart phones on our night stands and smart tv’s in every room, it’s hard to get away from triggers that will cause stress.

But you don’t stand a chance.

You’re absorbing the world’s problems through the news, along with trying to manage your own life problems, right?

Processed Foods

This one hurts because processed foods are SO good going down.

However, think about how you feel later….or in some cases, right after.

Processed foods (pizza, pastries, lunch meat, cold cuts, ice cream and just about anything you can get out of the frozen food section) rob your body of its natural state, while leaving poison behind.

If you don’t believe me, just try watering a plant with soda for a month and watch what happens.

Subsequently, I could go on but I’d rather you hear it from the man himself. Check out The Style O.G.

Lastly on Low Testosterone

So in conclusion, as useful as this information is, it means nothing if you don’t take heed and put correction to whatever you need to change the cycle.

Start looking at ways to eat right, exercise and maintain a healthy state of mind. Oh yeah one more thing: Get To Sleep at night!

Mental Fortitude – Crash Through Your Barriers

Mental Fortitude - Crash Through Your Barriers
This is the direction you head to get out of your own way.

What Is Mental Fortitude?

Mental fortitude is defined as: mental and emotional strength in facing difficulty, adversity, anger or temptation courageously.

I also like Entrepreneur magazine’s definition: the ability to focus on and execute solutions when in the face of uncertainty or adversity.

How Do You Develop Mental Fortitude?

There are different ways to go about it. One of my favorite ways is ,what’s considered, having a fit mind. I feel like the sharper your mental faculties are, the easier it is to have and develop mental fortitude.

This includes eating right, taking the right supplements and herbs, reading the right things and developing the ability to focus.

Also, knowing when to guard your mind of harmful things. Negative people have negative conversations. Those conversations over time (even instantly in some cases) can have an adverse effect on your inner peace.

Watching disturbing programs that trigger you can effect your inner peace as well. It’s hard to have mental fortitude if it’s not feeding on things that reinforce you.

Ways To Build Mental Fortitude

Check out this video by Alux, one of my favorite places to hang out online lol. They made a video on ways to build mental fortitude and I really think it would help you tremendously for whatever you have in your sights.

They drop jewels like not letting 1 mistake define you. Does this sound familiar?

You get up in the morning, get ready for work, go to the kitchen to fix something quick to eat, then the madness happens. Peanut butter and no jelly, ham and no burger, cereal and no milk.

This triggers you (right before you jump into traffic) to feel like the universe is against you somehow because you hit a couple of snags making a snack.

You begin to feel like you’re worthless because things won’t levitate to your palm as needed. Finally, you start questioning why you bother to do anything. F*cking sucks right?

Another jewel is to not get caught in repetitive cycles.

We must learn from our past mistakes or we will continue to repeat them. Doing this can stifle possibility and warp your perspective on how you look at the world.

This is something you don’t want to do because it will turn your world into a fish bowl. You must break your bad habits and choices if you want to see a significant change in your life.


In conclusion, mental fortitude is not an easy thing to acquire. It’s going to take a lot of inner strength to build your mind into a force to be reckoned with.

You will experience some pain along the way, but only growing pains. Part of this process entails losing “friends” who serve no positive purpose.

Also, losing your comfort zone. Your comfort zone (that fish bowl) is not helping your grow into the person you want to be. If anything, it has been converted into a mental prison cell and you don’t even know it.

Find the courage to build the fortitude and watch how high you fly.

How Do You Fight Anxiety and Win?

How do you fight anxiety?
Anxiety can be a debilitating mental state to deal with. But luckily there are ways to fight it.

What Is Anxiety and How Do You Fight It?

To fight anxiety, you must first know what anxiety is.

In fact, anxiety is defined as: a feeling of worry, nervousness or unease about something with an uncertain outcome.

Some examples would be:

  • the anticipation of taking a final exam
  • fearing an upcoming sexual encounter
  • purchasing your first home and making the payments thereafter
  • worrying about what the first day of school/a new job is going to be like
  • going out on date with someone who you deemed out of your league
  • worrying about a loved one
  • traveling to a new place without a contact or a plan

However, anxiety can be brought on by a simple change of circumstance. Or some would call it having their “comfort zone” rattled.

Fortunately, you can fight anxiety can be tackled from many angles, depending on the genesis of the cause. Simple steps and methods such as:

  • taking a time out to breathe and regroup
  • eating a healthy diet that consists of foods to help your chemical balance
  • deep breathing exercises like yoga or meditation
  • practicing mindfulness

Check this short video out from the cool kids over a Alux on how to fight anxiety for more on this.

How Can I Fight Anxiety Fast?

Fortunately, curing anxiety, or at least managing it, is a process that takes time to get to the root of. However, there are some short term solutions that you can practice to help you when an episode occurs.

  • Stay in the present. Anxiety is rooted in the fear of what Could happen, so you tend to mentally not be in the present.
  • Breath control. Sometimes all you need to do is breathe in and out slowly and steady. You’d be amazed at the effect of this simple exercise.
  • Take action. You’re in your head, and that’s what’s driving you mad. Jump up and take action towards whatever is worrying you. This works for me in the morning when I wake up (a notoriously dangerous time for anxiety attacks to occur).
  • Stick to the facts of the situation. Sometimes we can make the mistake of romanticizing something that has happened to us when it’s really not that big of a deal.
  • Fix your demeanor. Sometimes in order to change your mental disposition, you must first change your physical disposition first.


Consequently, anxiety can be a tough nut for some and more easily manageable for others. But it’s a pain in the ass to deal with and it always comes on at the most inconvenient time.

Be patient with yourself, make a strategy and stick to it.

Furthermore, start taking action to what you know needs attention in your life.
