Tilt is a poker term for a state of mental or emotional confusion or frustration in which a player adopts a suboptimal strategy, usually resulting in the player becoming overly aggressive. All sorts of things can cause tilt and you can tilt in all sorts of ways.
You should stop worrying about things that are out of your control, which is pretty much everything! Even if you play perfectly, you will lose sometimes. Make sure that you are always focusing on the process and not the outcome.
If you are prone to tilting then you need to figure out what triggers you and figure out why. With some honest assessment, you will realize it is probably quite silly. Don’t do silly things! When you feel yourself tilting then you should take a break or perhaps quit your current session. However, this is just a temporary bandage.

Poker is one long session. Your goal should be to make as much money as possible in each hand that you are dealt. You should not be concerned with winning each session because the start and end of each session are just artifical markers. For this reason you should not worry about ‘getting even’.
It is important that you put in volume at the tables when you are a winning player in that game. You make some amount per hand, so be sure to be dealt into lots of hands! When you do not play, you do not extract equity! Variance does exist, volume cures variance!
You will win as much as possible by exploiting your opponent’s mistakes. If you are not present then you will not see all the mistakes that they are making! Find ways that work for you to routinely re-center yourself. Make sure that you are focusing on abnormal things that your opponents do. Take notes about these mistakes and the adjustments that you are going to make when you are playing against them in a poker hand.
