Manage Your Anger - 6 Great Tips

By Jeanene Fisher

Everyone has experienced anger lots of times. I now I have. How about you?

It is normal to have anger, but anger needs to be controlled. Some people have trouble with that. Not managing anger ruins careers, relationships, and can lead to crime if left unchecked.

Learning to deal with and control your anger is very important. Here are some suggestions to help manage your anger.

1. Do you have someone in your life that is easy to TALK to? Who is understanding? Perhaps you have a family member or close friend who qualifies. Try talking your anger out with them. This lets you tell your side of the story and hopefully you will listen as your friend explains the story from a different perspective. Talking it out, listening to other ideas, may help you to understand your anger and thus manage it.

2. When you are in a state of anger, try WRITING down your thoughts and feelings. When you write, no one talks back - isn't that great? When you write you will also likely identify some of the "triggers" that actually cause your outbursts. Use pen and paper or the computer - both work well.

3. Have you ever wanted to do something PHYSICAL to someone? You'd like to "take it out" on them because they did something to you. Don't assault the person. Use all that pent up energy at the gym, go for a run, or even hit a pillow. By releasing that energy on a neutral article, you can manage your anger and not hurt anyone in the process.

4. Can you take a vacation or just get away to spend some time alone? Removing yourself from the environment that makes you angry and frustrated will give you the opportunity to see things differently. You may also find solutions to the problem.

5. This may not be for everyone, but many people find help with their anger by turning to PRAYER and MEDITATION. When you pray or meditate, you are alone with your thoughts. This is a great way to release tension. If you can let go of your anger and your negative thoughts, your life will make a change for the positive.

6. Deep breathing techniques, physical exercise, getting more rest, getting out in nature, learning to find humor in the situation, or playing or listening to music are a few other ways of getting control of your anger.

So work on using some of these ways to manage your anger. Uncontrolled anger brings lots of adverse consequences. Controlled anger will let you a happier life. - 31891

The Link Between Anger and Depression

By Owen Jones

Depression and anxiety are said to be the causes of uncontrollable anger. When a person is constantly worried about things they have no control over or even things that they do have control over, it often causes severe depression. If you have the feeling, there is no way out then your depression can affect your life and cause you to sink into a wave of despair.

Taking control of your emotions usually produces good results. If you feel that the world is falling down around your ears, then you are almost definitely thinking negatively, which brings on depression and anxiety. In this short piece, we will discuss some techniques to empower you to cope with anxiety and depression, thus relieving uncontrollable anger.

Firstly, let us examine the symptoms. Do you feel like you are going out of your mind? Do you scream in your head: 'I can't take it any more?'. Do you feel like everyone is out to get you? Do you think people view you as mad? If you are undergoing any or all of these symptoms then you are probably suffering from some form of anxiety and depression.

If you can not find a way to think in a different mode, then you will probably explode when your emotions start to soar and your anger bursts forth. Instead of telling yourself that you are going mad, why not tell yourself that you are only having a temporary emotional problem and that you need to solve the problem. Review all the problem areas carefully and search your memory to see if there are answers to your problems there. Reviewing like this, often opens doors to resources you may have overlooked.

If you feel like everyone is out to get you then you may have a chemical imbalance or a mental illness. Why not visit your doctor or a mental health expert to learn more about the symptoms and find a way to regain control of your life. Anxiety and depression can play tricks with your mind but sometimes the thoughts are just the result of a lack of a chemical balance.

If you think that people think you are going crazy, you may want to remember that most people have their own problems and don't have the time nor the inclination to worry about you as a person. When you walk into a room and think that people are staring at you, you might want to remember that all people watch the things around them, checking to make sure that their surroundings are all right before returning to their own lives.

If you feel like you just cannot take it any more, just bite your lip and walk another mile. When times are difficult, it does not mean it is the end of the world, although sometimes it may seem this way. If you are struggling to pay bills, fighting to hold a family together, or having difficulty with your children then remember that we all have these problems at some time or another in our lives.

Are your children driving you nuts? If they are, take a break. Go do something entertaining or exercise. This often relieves the stress that leads to anxiety, depression and anger. Your life is too short to worry about the things you do not have control over. If you have problems, the answers are within you, so it pays to review your mind.

If you are struggling to obtain your goals then you might want to break your goals down to smaller segments and work slowly to achieve them. If you set goals within reason, you will not need to stress your mind finding a way to achieve them.

It is important to pamper yourself each day. Learn some coping techniques that will benefit both your mind and your body. If you feel snowed under, you might want to take deep breaths ten times.

Stretching out on a sofa to watch your favourite film can relax your mind and your body, if you want to de-stress your mind. Learn to concentrate on what you are doing instead of fretting about what you are not doing. This often clears the mind and helps you to relax.

If you are subject to sustained anger, you will most probably have problems for the rest of your life unless you learn to take control of your emotions. Remember that depression leads to uncontrollable anger. - 31891

Hypnotism And Anger: Working Through Your Issues

By Trevor Johnson

People who are unable to control their anger can be frightening. Not only can they say hurtful things but in some cases they will even strike out at those who are supposed to be closest to them. There are times when it literally is best to be somewhere else if someone is kicking off too hard.

The hard thing is that you may not even notice or your anger may not let you care. Instead placing the blame with the injured party. It is hard being forgiving or thoughtful when your vision is going red and staying there. So for the sake of not only yourself but to those around you look back on your episodes of anger.

Look at your life; see how you express your anger most often. If you find that your method of conveying your emotions is violent or emotionally destructive to those around you, then it is long past time you sought help. Like the old adage states, the first step is admitting that you have a problem.

You may not believe in hypnosis but it is certainly worth a try if there is a chance that it can help you isn't it? Other methods may work well for different people, they might even work for you, but for how long?

Anger can be the most destructive of our many emotions and unless we're able to find the root of it, then conventional methods will wear down pretty quickly. Stress balls, internal counting, and therapists can only help you learn to manage the anger. They can't help it dissipate. The idea of hypnosis is to go down into your subconscious and find the root of the problem.

But there's a new method of therapy just waiting for you. Hypnosis is growing in popularity for those who have varying problems. Phobics, alcoholics, and smokers all understand that to really get rid of a problem, it's important to find the cause of it. Once that is found it's only a matter of time before a solution can be reached. There are instances where just one session can change someone's entire life. - 31891

Hypnotism And Anger: Working Through Your Issues

By Trevor Johnson

When you think of hypnotism, often the first thing that comes to mind is a man forcing some hapless fool to cluck like a chicken. You either believe the hypnosis worked through the power of suggestion, or else the 'volunteer' was actually working with the hypnotist from the start. Whatever your take on it, the over-all consensus seems to vary from one end to another.

You either believe or you don't. But even if you don't believe, there's an excellent chance that it will still work on you - the same techniques are being used by advertisers all the time to generate sales for their products. So keep an open mind - and don't fly off the handle at the mere suggestion that hypnosis could be useful.

For those who don't, going to see a hypnotist over a therapist in regards to a problem may not seem like a good option. If they even consider it as an option in the first place. But regardless of your views (or even prejudices) there's a lot to be said for seeing a hypnotist to help you conquer your anger once and for all.

Everything after that is easy. Which is good to know as there can be times when it seems that your temper is running your life instead of you being in control.

So you can look through Google, order self help books and tapes off the internet. Medication, whether over the counter or over the bar, simply smothers the problem but only for so long. Meditation doesn't work much better because all that rage boiling around makes it difficult to reach a 'happy place.' At first, after you've looked over the scattered carcasses of a dozen stress balls, it may seem as if you've tried all avenues.

But there's a new method of therapy just waiting for you. Hypnosis is growing in popularity for those who have varying problems. Phobics, alcoholics, and smokers all understand that to really get rid of a problem, it's important to find the cause of it. Once that is found it's only a matter of time before a solution can be reached. There are instances where just one session can change someone's entire life. - 31891

Strategies For Coping With Anger

By Trevor Johnson

There are many things that come into our lives that can cause anger. Not all anger is bad, some of it gives us energy and passion to right the wrongs in the world. However, if you find that you are getting angry over the little things in life that truly do not matter, you may need some help in coping with anger.

If you are going to effectively deal with anger, you must begin by getting in touch with your own feelings. Living in anger constantly is bad for your health and can destroy relationships. Rather than allowing anger to control your life, ask yourself what is bothering you? Try to avoid anger from one situation onto people that are not involved in that situation.

To effectively deal with anger, you should know what your triggers are. What is it that makes you angry most often? Is it dealing with authority, jealousy or some other trigger?

Learn to give yourself a time out. When you recognize anger rising in you, let people know that you need time to walk away from the situation to calm down. Deep breathing and finding a quiet calm place can help you to become more rational and deal with a situation constructively.

Take responsibility for the way that you react to a situation. While situations can fuel our angry feelings, we ultimately have the final choice in how we respond. No one has to say hurtful things to the persons that they love just because they are angry. Instead, learn to replace negative responses with positive behaviors.

It is okay to assert yourself and use I statements. Describe your feelings to the other person and do not make accusations.

If you are trying to overcome an angry lifestyle, do not add drugs or alcohol to the mix. These substances can often relax your inhibitions and allow you to say or do things that you will be sorry for at a later time. - 31891

Anger Management Self Help Book

By Breanna Violet

Anger management classes for children and adults will differ in the fact that adults can some times get to do things that children would otherwise not be allowed to do, such as get into the car and go for a drive just to let off steam. The main thing that needs to be learnt from all parties attending anger management children or adult classes is that if it is family members that are riling each other up, they need to learn when to stop, before destruction occurs. It is all so easy to say "it's his or their fault", when you get taught about anger management it is about how you yourself deal positively with it. Do you get constructive or destructive is the question?

For some anger management exercises for children, physical exertion would be the best way to get rid of all their frustrations, something that really makes them sweat it off. A sport that they can just do on the spur of the moment where they can run themselves silly into tiredness as this would surely distract them from the peer and adult pressures of the world today. Yes there would still be a bit of competitiveness but it would be a positive action with exercise of a physical nature. Mental simulative games could also prove to be beneficial as anger management exercises for children.

Everybody knows outward anger and can recognize it in the form of angry outbursts. However, many people fail to recognize internal anger, carried within. This internal anger can result from emotional scarring, such as from a divorce or a loved one's death. Many people who attend anger management counseling go on to realize that they feel deeper pain than they originally thought, and they go on to also attend other forms of counseling to deal with those deeper emotions. As a result, people who attend anger management counseling have overall healthier mentalities, are more optimistic, friendly, and able to deal with everything that life throws at them.

If you want counseling for your anger, counseling is a good type to shoot for, because it has the best results, not only in helping you cope with your anger issues, but also in helping you to deal with them pre-emptively. Anger management group counseling wins in terms of effectiveness hands down. You can probably picture a room with a circle of seated people, as exemplified in movies such as Anger Management. While your own experiences probably won't be nearly as eventful, the basic setting will be very familiar. You'll be seated in a room with other folks that you probably have never met before, and you will all get to work on coping with anger management together. Working as a team, you'll be more able to effectively counter the harmful effects of anger and the underlying problems.

Since chronic stress can also play a significant role in anger, those under large amounts of stress due to circumstances in life may also benefit from an anger management class. This may be the case with a son or daughter who is caring for an aging parent or a couple who is under severe financial strain.

An adult anger management class may be a generalized approach to controlling anger or it may be specifically geared toward a particular group or issue. For example, there are courses designed to help couples improve their marriage relationship and others for adults who are dealing with the stress of caring for a disabled or aging relative. Some classes are for parents in particular, because they teach strategies that can be used to gain control of the household without using temper to bring children to submission. If you want to get your anger under control for a particular reason, a specific adult anger management class may be the right choice for you. - 31891

Anger Management Help

By Breanna Violet

Although anger management children and adult classes differ enormously they still both have to learn the primary basics of self-control. The anger management techniques children require cannot be negative either because if they are not taught proper self-control early they could quite possibly become outcasts of society. A temperamental child throwing tantrums left, right and centre does not help the child especially through their school years, and the parents are to blame as they allowed the child to start being destructive and have not nurtured and guided them when in situations that they feel they cannot control or are being bullied. Unfortunately it takes time to learn these small but life altering techniques too.

So what are some anger management activities for children? It could be something as simple as coloring or drawing, it could be writing exercises which helps them calm down; or it could be something like breathing exercises or even a sport. Anything that takes their mind off of acting out and which helps them realize their behavior is not appropriate is a great activity. For children, however, the activity must be fun and interesting or else they're not going to keep up with it. Remember that kids' attention spans are very short so you should have as many activities as possible so that they don't get bored with just one or two.

If money is tight (as can be the case with anger, either causing that anger or resulting from it), consider checking out free anger management counseling. Most of the time, all you'll be able to find is free advice, and actual counseling is difficult to come by. Fortunately, there are often money-back guarantees if the program does not work as intended, and free counseling can still be very helpful to give you some tips to deal with anger. If you're willing to attend public classes, then you can save a lot of money, but you'll have less choices available to you. No matter the case, anger management counseling stands to benefit your life greatly.

Attending an anger management counseling center for classes will make you happier in the long run by helping you to deal with both the problems and effects of anger. Learn what's really bothering you so you can correct it, but also learn how to control angry flare ups when they do occur (and they do occur to even the most disciplined of us). Remember, anger is a natural emotion in response to some cause, be it stubbing your toe, wrecking your car, filing for bankruptcy, or getting a divorce. You can't always avoid anger, but with anger management group counseling it can be the least of your worries.

Going to anger management class can literally change your life. If you have problems controlling your anger, you should definitely think about going to an anger management class -- especially if you can find a free anger management class! Only good things will come if you take an anger management class. You will learn coping mechanisms to help you to control your anger in appropriate manners. Once you can control your anger, your stress level will most likely go down and your overall health will improve exponentially! So take the plunge -- go to anger management class.

If you believe an anger management is the right course of action for you, there are a number of options. You can contact your doctor for referrals to a psychologist that might provide this type of training. Or you can go online to find an anger management class in your area. Make sure you are searching for anger management and not assertiveness training, since the latter is generally geared toward those who have trouble standing up for themselves. With the right anger management class and a bit of work, you can get your temper in check and enjoy more peaceful relationships and better health. - 31891

Help Someone With Anger Management

By Lauren Michaela

While anger is a normal emotional response to certain situations, anger that is left unchecked can damage relationships and one's personal health. Anger management is the process of controlling the emotional feelings as well as the physical responses to those feelings, like elevated blood pressure and increased adrenaline levels. For some, controlling anger can be as easy as going to another room or taking a deep breath and counting to ten. For others an anger management class may be the answer.

Anger happens to everyone from time to time. A car cuts you off on the way to work, your son mouths off to you for the umpteenth time or a co-worker takes the credit for your idea and work. It's perfectly normal to get mad in these situations, but some folks let that anger take control until it becomes destructive to them and those around them. If you find your anger getting in the way of your life and relationships more often than you'd like, perhaps it is time to consider an adult anger management class.

Anger is one of the ways we express our feelings, and since negative anger is not tolerated in society it is important to learn how to manage and deal with it constructively. Anger management children and adult classes are available readily to help learn how to control these explosive situations in our lives.

Every kid has a temper tantrum now and again. Usually it happens in places like the grocery store when the parent doesn't give the child what they want. They can't have the candy they see displayed in the check out lane and so they go nuts. That's normal. When the kid begins to destroy the candy aisle, however, or begins to hit the parent, that's when the child may need anger management.

Being a teacher is hard enough without having to deal with anger management issues. Teaching children with anger management issues is very difficult because they're constantly acting out and they're very unpredictable. Some teachers even have to worry about young children throwing desks and other objects at them or even coming up to strike them.

You might find yourself being a little more irritable, and you write it off as stress. You don't want to jump to conclusions, but as the weeks and months pass on by, more and more irritates you, and you eventually lash out at everyone and everything. You might throw your phone out the window when you get a call about credit card payments. You might throw a glass at the wall just thinking about a fight at work that day. - 31891

Anger Management Skills

By Ceri Jones

Many learned people, so-called experts, philosophers and the rest, inform us about anger and anger management skills, but do they give you the inside story? There are people all over the world with anger issues, some mild, some extreme and some which are within the normal bounds of the emotion of anger.

We are told about all the symptoms of anger, which include kicking, fighting, slapping, verbally abusing, physically abusing and mentally abusing. We find reports from around the world about the countless episodes related to violence in the criminal world. Finally, we hear many stories about how to deal with anger using anger management skills.

Firstly, anger is an emotion that acts on impulses. Anger is good, until it becomes unmanageable. This happens when a person feels displeasured and acts on the impulses of his or her emotions radically. However, there are some persons who get angry as a direct result of procrastination.

You can see it in an example with a person that gets angry with a cable company. Let's say that this person has been dealing for more than three months with issues involving a cable company, herself and a third party. This person was paying a bill which included channels ordered by someone else, but the company refused to give her the selection of channels that she had ordered in her own right.

She went through a series of processes, and finally, after she had done as instructed, the company advised her that she would have to take full responsibility for what had already passed. In other words, she would have to pay for all the channels on the bill, only some of which she had ordered. Now, she was in no position to do much about it since she did not live at the address. Finally, she blew her top and told the company off, walking quickly out the front door, mumbling you stupid bloody idiots.

This person was pushed to anger and this happens too many times in society these days, yet the world only sees the angry persons. We can look at other theories about anger and anger management skills, and see that the blanks are not filled in. When a person has an anger issue, he or she does not necessarily have that problem everyday. Rather, in most instances the person builds up to the point of going out of control.

Often a person will go for a week, month, or even longer before they explode in anger. If the person has mental illness, alcohol or drug problems, this contributes to the anger issues, however in many cases the person does not get too angry every day.

So, we can see that not only do we need to learn anger management skills to contain anger; we also must teach people to approach each problem as it occurs. Procrastination comes in many forms and it includes putting off emotional issues until they are too hot to handle. Many violent people often have a dangerous mental illness underlying their anger. Many people that are angry because of procrastination have a degree of control, and it usually does not lead to anger.

However if someone is pushed hard enough this may occur. Anger is involved with the process of expressing emotions, however when a person is angry they may have difficulty relating to the underlying reason for the anger, which means that they may have very poor anger management skills. - 31891

This is where the adult still has to take control of the situation on behalf of the toddler.

Anger management for young children may be necessary if the child cannot control his or her temper and the child really begins to lash out uncontrollably. If you don't find some sort of program or anger management activity for your child, you may find that they continue to act out well into adulthood where they could end up in jail or prison.
