It’s okay, everyone has flaws, but we need to learn how to fix those flaws that affect us and the people around us.

Anger is an emotion that is not necessarily bad but when it gets out of control, it becomes destructive.
Research says that when you get angry, it increases your effective performance and creativity.
It is all good as long as it is under your control, but if it gets out of your hands, it is an alarming sign, and now you need to take effective steps to tame it.
So I am sharing with you those anger management tips and techniques that I either studied somewhere or someone told me to practice. We all will practice it together to not let our anger control us. And after some time I’ll share the results with you people and you are advised to do the same.
1) STAY QUIET
It’s good to keep quiet when you are angry because you may utter words out of anger that you don’t even mean, hurt someone and regret it later. It’s because when we get angry, we want to release our emotions, and in this process, we don’t even care whether our words hurt someone or not. We don’t do it deliberately, but something within us triggers us to the point that we behave out of our way to express it.
2) DO SOMETHING POSITIVE
When you get angry, try to do something positive like you may help someone or any other thing that makes you feel better about yourself. What happens is when we try to do something positive it generates positive vibes or thoughts. You might have noticed it too that whenever we put efforts to help someone or to work for a good cause, we feel great about ourselves, and it makes us happy. So, those positive emotions help us to fight against our anger.
3) TALK TO A SUPPORTIVE FRIEND
Keeping feelings inside causes more pain. It’s good to speak to a supportive friend or a family member or anyone who you trust about what’s bothering you. Your friend may advice you or help you to get over anything that’s disturbing your inner peace and making you upset. Another benefit of it is that when we open up about our feelings, we feel light.
4) PRACTICE RELAXATION TECHNIQUES
One very simple technique is to choose a word or phrase that has a positive meaning, close your eyes, and focus on it when you feel angry. Repeat the chosen word or phrase until you feel relaxed.
For instance, phrases such as “calm down”, “you will be fine” are all effective examples. If you feel your mind has wandered, concentrate on the chosen word or phrase.
5) INDULGE YOURSELF IN A PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Anger creates sudden energy in our body that needs to be released. If you feel your temper is rapidly rising, engage yourself in any physical activity to consume that energy into something productive. It also helps to divert your mind from whatever has happened that’s disturbing your peace.
If you feel your anger escalating, start visualizing positive scenarios to keep yourself calm. It will transmit positive signals to your brain, and your stress will be relieved. Imagine yourself in a relaxing place be it a beach or any other place which gives you a peaceful feeling. Think about the things that you are grateful for or that make you happy.
