A Brief Summary Of Some Techniques To Manage Anger

As human beings we are all exposed to the emotion of anger and it is okay be angry as long as it does not permanently affect others. If you find that anger has taken an uncontrollable hold on your life, then it is likely that you have a very strong problem relating to anger. If you are one of those people who become annoyed at the slightest thing, there are techniques to manage anger that you can use to show frustration in an acceptable way.

All humans feel angry at something at some point in their lives. It is healthy to have a certain amount of anger. We all need to be able to let off steam about a situation or problem and becoming angry is our normal way of doing this. It is when we begin to feel ourselves lose control that these techniques should be used.

One useful technique is to try and get your body to relax and calm your mind. This may be quite difficult if you are already quite annoyed. By learning to control breathing and ensuring you take long and deep breaths, you will feel yourself relax and calm down. It can also be beneficial to take a wander outside and look around you whilst you are using the breathing practices.

Another technique that many people find useful when angry is writing things down. Grab a piece of paper and a pen and just start writing. It is important to write down what you are feeling at the time when you are angry.

It is not essential to hold back when writing down how you feel- it is not necessary to be considerate and congenial by any means. This is a great technique that prevents you from taking your dissatisfaction out on something or someone else. You have an outlet to get rid of your frustration but nothing else is harmed in the process.

Finally, if you are angry at another person or an animal, try to imagine what they are thinking and feeling. This is one of the more powerful techniques to manage anger that shows you understand empathy and are willing to accept that the situation is not all one sided.
