Yesterday, I embarked on what I thought would be a relatively straightforward procedure: installing Microsoft Office on my computer. Given my history with computers, my confidence was not well-founded. A product key was required - fair enough. I had to prove that I had bought the product. Then, I also discovered that I had to verify myself as a student. I won't got through the details of how this seemingly simple procedure took me all day to no avail; however suffice it to say I was taken on a merry go round of trying to prove I was a student, and then trying to prove I was who I said I was. I should have let it go, as I was caught in a cycle of futility. I was hungry, yet thought "I'll just fix this first." It was coming to two o'clock, and the dishes hadn't got done. I was beginning to feel quite frustrated.

I rang up the people who I had bought it from, thinking they could give me some advice. They informed me there was nothing they could do. It was Christmas time and they were busy.

I finally managed to get somebody on the phone from Microsoft Office who genuinely seemed to care about fixing my problem. To cut a long story short, he provided me with a verification code.

What have I learnt about dealing with frustration?

No matter how urgent the task may seem, give yourself a breather. Walk around. Eat well.

When you find yourself going in circles, as much as you may be tempted to get cranky, breathe and remain calm.
