In brief: Some ideas

One 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 are calmer. Focus on your breathing not what is making you angry. Cognitive behavioral therapy is excellent for.

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, progressive muscle relaxation & meditation. Avoid drugs & don't look to alcohol as a solution.
