Anger Management Tip 3: Change your Position

Changing your body position allows you to relax and suppress your anger. If you are standing, then take a seat and relax. The discomfort that flares up the rage will gradually vanish.

Anger Management Tip 4: Practice Breathing Exercise

Rapid and irregular breathing is a result of anger. Try to practice breathing exercise to release stress. It’s simple yet very powerful anger management technique. Just breathe in slowly, as much as you can. Hold your breath for a while and then exhale slowly with the imagination of getting relaxed. Repeat it for a few minutes, until you feel your temper is under control.

Anger Management Tip 5: Keep Quiet

It is a common practice to use curse and swear words during anger. This is really hurtful for the people around. Sometimes when we are angry, we tend to get pessimistic about everything and exaggerate the situation. This is what provokes us to utter hurtful words which often reflect nothing other than our own inner negative thoughts. Next time when you are angry, try to remain silent and remember;

“A broken bone can heal, but the wound a word opens can fester forever” -Jessamyn West

Anger Management Tip 6: Learn to Stay Positive

Get yourself into the practice of staying positive in all circumstances. Thoughts have a great impact on anger.  Once you are able to take all the negativity out, the chances of getting angry would also drop off. Read more: 3 simple tips to stay positive in negative situations

Anger Management Tip 7: Get Yourself Out of The Scene

If possible, try to move out of the scene that is irritating you. Don’t let yourself get trapped into a situation that is more likely to blow you up. For example, if there is something at home that is making you angry, be open and tell your spouse and your children that you need to take a break. Move into another room, or outside your home. After a while, you will be relaxed as well as prepared to handle the situation in a calm way.

Anger Management Tip 8: Expect Less

Sometimes the reason of anger is nothing other than our own high expectations. When those around us fail to behave in a way we expected them to, our anger reaches its peak. Think with an open mind and you will realize that such thoughts are totally unrealistic. Next time when you find yourself upset because of someone not being the way you wanted him to be; remind yourself of these great words by famous philosopher Epictetus:

“When you are offended at any man’s fault, turn to yourself and study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger.”

    “Breath by breath, let go of fear, expectation, anger, regret, cravings,
    frustration, fatigue. Let go of the need for approval. Let go of old
    judgments and opinions. Die to all that, and fly free. Soar in the
    freedom of desirelessness.

    Let go. Let Be. See through everything and be free, complete, luminous, at home — at ease.”
