Keeping your temper in control is extremely challenging. Anger is a normal state of feeling however it can be harmful if it leads to aggression, outburst or physical controversy. Stress management tips are all about managing your angry feelings, your words or actions before it is escalated to a level you regret. There are numerous ways with which you can control your anger and a few of the best ones are listed for you.

Effects of Anger

If you lose control of your chronic anger, you may face serious consequences on your physical and mental wellbeing. It may impact your entire life.

Stress Management Tips

If you are ready to start working on yourself, here are a few of the best stress management tips that you can practice right from day one.

1. Calm Down and Count

A reverse countdown is really helpful in such a burning situation. When you start a countdown from 10 to 1, your mind gets distracted from the moment of outburst and hour heart rate also comes back to normal. If your anger is really bad, you can start reverse counting from 100 to 1.

2. Take a Deep Breath

When you are angry, your breath becomes shallow however if you practice deep breathing with your nose while exhaling it from your mouth, you feel relaxed. Repeat this process for a few moments and your anger will be in control.

3. Don’t Hold on Grudges

Forgive and forget is the key to happiness. Don’t hold on grudges within you, rather speak out and solve it once for all with a calm mind. If you will always be crowded with grudges, anger, or feeling of revenge, you will always taste the bitterness of injustice and won’t be able to come out of situations. Forgiveness is a very powerful tool, use it!

4. Get Some Physical Exercise

Physical activities help you reduce stress and come out of depression or anxiety. The best way to avoid a situation is to go for a brisk walk or indulge yourself in any physical activity that you feel can relax whenever you feel tempered.

5. Start Chanting

Whenever you feel angry, you can start chanting any Mantra or a song you like the most. Repeating “Relax, things will be alright!” or “It’s okay, everything is gonna be fine!” may help you get out of that temper.

6. Visualize Your Best Moments

To escape out of a critical situation or an argument, you can slip out in a quiet room and close your eyes. Visualize your best memories or imagine yourself in the arms of nature where you can listen to birds chirping, imagine the color of the water on a beautiful island, beautiful birds around you or anything soothing that can relax you just with a blink.

7. Stretching, Yoga & Meditation

Practicing Yoga and Meditation can cleanse your soul. You will feel relaxed and stress-free and the level of anger and outburst will reduce slowly. Stretching exercises can also help you in controlling your body and rejoice your emotions.

8. Practice Silence When in Anger

Whenever you are angry or steamed up to a level of frustration, whatever you will speak will do no good and always harm your relations. In such situations, pretend that your lips are glued up as you used to do in your childhood. This silence will give you time to reconsider your thoughts and may change your choice of words before you speak out.

9. Turn Your Anger into Creativity

I well remember people who turned out to be a creative artist out of the anger outburst. Identify your creative hand and try poetry, sketching, painting, or any tangible production. When a heartbroken person turns into a singer or a lyricist, nobody can beat the words and thought process.
