In brief: Get help

Everybody gets angry -- it's what we do with the anger.
If your anger interferes with your life, you need to ask for help. Good thing-- you're aware of your difficulty to manage anger and this awareness will help you during the treatment. Look for a provider who specializes in anger management skills. Meanwhile, learn deep breathing, relaxation and try to find out the triggers for your anger.

Ne simple tip- count to ten before acting on the urge to impulsively harm someone physically or emotionally.
Reduce anger by deep breathing. Breath in deeply ; slowly through the nostrils. Hold air in lungs for a 5 count before slowly exhaling through an open mouth. Repeat until you cool your jets. Focus on your breathing not what is making you angry. Cognitive behavioral therapy is excellent for.

dealing with anger problems. Getting physical through aerobic activity is an excellent way to help keep anger in check. There are more serene ways to do it – including tai chi, qi gong, acupuncture, massage & meditation. Avoid drugs & don't look alcohol as a solution.
