Top 10 Anger Management Tips

Think before you speak

Sometimes you may be thinking to splash words during heated arguments. Following the arguments, you may regret yourself for those words. To avoid such situations, not just once, think twice before you speak.

Take a moment and chill down

When the situation peeks and you are about to lose your tempo- Walk away from the place, take a few minutes to calm down and resume with more positivity and fresh mood to solve the issue.

Get enough sleep

As per research studies, a person needs at least 6 to 8 hours of sound sleep to avoid sleep deprivation. Lack of sleep may lead to hostility, irritation and angriness.

Make workout a habit

Hitting the gym twice a week has a lot of potential benefits. Regular exercise extracts the feel-good chemicals in the brain. This may reduce the chances of getting rage and enhances the overall wellbeing.

Don't skip your meal

It may sound silly for some -yes, but it has a great tendency to pull your rage. Skipping a meal triggers the adrenaline to lower the glucose levels in the bloodstream thus making you feel low and behave aggressively.

Practice mindfulness

Mindfulness is a meditation technique that allows you to be in the present moment. Also, it allows you to take control of your emotions. It involves 15 to 30 minutes of simple practices such as meditation and breathing techniques. It relaxes your brain, body and nervous system.

Identify your triggers

One of the best ways to take control of your anger is to identify your triggers. Find out all the possible triggers that may creep your rage to peak. Have a specific action plan to nullify them.

Cultivate a hobby

Learning a new hobby is a great way to flush out the rage. Do the activity you love- it could be nurturing a plant, petting a dog or learning a musical instrument. It has the endowment to distract your negative thoughts and outrage behaviours.

Speak up

Instead of holding a grudge on a person, it is good you speak it out. Holding anger for a long time can even make the situation worse. So have a healthy and positive win-win argument with the person. It allows both of them to learn a lesson and strengthen the relationship. 

Seek professional help

Opting for professional help is the other way to deal with your anger. A counsellor may help you with specific skills to anticipate and manage your anger.
