Anger Management



Anger is a completely natural, usually healthy, human emotion. According to Charles Spielberger, Ph.D., a psychologist who specializes in the study of anger believes that 'Anger' is "an emotional state that varies in intensity from mild irritation to intense fury and rage,".
But when this mild irritation gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to severe problems. For Instance trouble at work, in your relationships, and the overall quality of your life and thus can make you realize as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion.
Are you ready to get your anger under control? The list below is some of the anger management tips that one must follow.

  1.  Always think before you speak: In the heat of the moment, you most of the time speak something that you'll later regret. So, try to take a few moments, gather your thoughts before saying anything, and allow others involved in the situation to do the same.
  2. Express your anger in a non-confrontational way: As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in a non-confrontational way. State your point of view, concerns and, needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them.
  3.  Exercise: Physical activity can reduce stress and thus helps you to become less angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time in other enjoyable physical activities and try to divert your mind.
  4. Take a timeout: Timeouts aren't just for teenagers. Give yourself short breaks and power naps during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting frustrated or angry.
  5. Search for possible solutions: Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue, and search for possible solutions. Whether you stressed about your family, friends, or homework. Always remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse.
  6. Stick with 'I' statements: To avoid criticizing or placing blame which might only increase tension, Prefer "I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful, confident, optimistic, and specific. For instance, say, "I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes" instead of "You never engage in household activities."
