6 Best Techniques for Anger Management


If someone argues with you, how do you react? Are you calm and reasonable, or do you feel your blood boiling? When someone cuts you off on the road, do you shrug and say “that’s life,” or shout, honk your horn, and flip a bird or five? We all get angry from time to time, but if you find yourself fuming on a regular basis, it might be time to try and control your temper. Anger has a negative effect, not only on your loved ones, but also on your health.

If you’re ready to try and control your anger, try our top 6 techniques for Anger Management.

1. Go and take a time-out


If you feel your anger rising, leave the situation you’re in, go outside into the fresh-air (or at least into another room) and take a minute. Sit down, and take some deep, calming breaths. A moment away from the situation will calm you, making you better able to cope when you return.

2. Exerciseyoga

Feel angry and stressed? Go for a jog, do a workout with a punch-bag, or power-walk. Not only will that give you time away from the situation, it will also get the feel-good endorphins pumping, which will help you feel better. Every time you feel your anger build, do a physical activity that you find enjoyable.

3. Think of simple solutions

thinkRather than allow yourself to become irate, think of the simplest way to solve the source of your anger. Your teenager is never home on time after school; give them a later time to be home. Your partner’s office looks like a bomb-site; close the door. By removing the cause of your anger from your sight, you make it easier to be calm.
