Here are few tips and techniques for anger management.
Try and calm yourself
At such time it’s hard to calm down, to do so you can simply take a deep breath, close your eyes for awhile and relax your mind, if standing please sit down, surely this will help to control your temper.
Give a second thought
Often we get angry on the people we love the most, so another way to control your temper is always give a second thought on the things you have been doing and whether yelling is of any benefit to you, think about the person with whom you have been fighting, about all the good things that person has done.
Keep yourself away from the situation
It is always better to keep yourself away from people for a while to calm yourself down, but that doesn’t mean you lock yourself up in room, at such time one doesn’t know what they going through so they may end up taking drastic steps. Keep yourself away so that you may not get provoked by anyone and harm them.
Leave things on time
Time is the best healer for any kind of mental stress. Evoking someone or getting provoked yourself could make the situation worse so try and distract your mind from the situation, and leave it on time. Things will automatically fall back in place over time.
There are several other alternatives, like squeezing or punching a pillow, counting numbers in reverse direction, but do not hit something hard.
Although at the beginning trying out these tips may still not help you get your anger in control but eventually you will get the hook of it. You can even invent your own ways, as you know yourself better than anyone else. It’s always recommended to think before you do and not after you have done it, as you may not want to regret on what you have done.
