Anger: Control Your Anger With These 5 Methods.

It gets hard sometimes
Life tends to throw a lot of things or people our way that will make us want to lose it.

But Hey!

We all have to get a grip on ourselves.

Here are 5 basic tips on how to deal with anger especially when it gets too hard to hold.

1. Think before you speak

In the heat of the moment, it’s easy to say something you’ll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same.

2. Once you’re calm, express your anger

As soon as you’re thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but non confrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them.

3. Get some exercise

Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities.

4. Don’t hold a grudge

Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation and strengthen your relationship with them

5. Know when to seek help

Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Seek help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.

  1. I try to avoid anger, but I could hold grudges for a life time. The person would end up on my “Indifference” list and I would probably roll my eyes at whatever the person says, or do absolutely nothing.(you’re there but my senses have failed to regard and acknowledge you) I’m not so big on forgiveness either especially when the hurt or harm was done deliberately and on purpose. (whatever their twisted purpose may be, they had bad intentions all the way… Be gone evil one!)

    How does one remedy this?
