The First Step

A basic anger management technique that you will want to learn right away is to recognize when you are becoming angry.

There are a number of ways you will do this. There will be signs in your body...you will begin to feel tension. Your jaws may clench together, or your hands go from relaxed to forming a fist, and your nostrils are also likely to flare.

Look at your mind, mental tension is also likely to be present. As you get understand and practice more, you will know when you are starting to get mad. And once you see yourself starting to get mad you will be able to go on to step two of the anger management plan in order to make things even better. However, you have to get to know when you are getting angry. This is step one.

The Next Step

Step two in anger management techniques would be whatever works best for you. It could be avoidance, where you just excuse yourself until the heat of the moment has gone away. What you need to answer for yourself is what is more important, being angry and showing it, or solving the problem that may be causing the anger.

Ask this question keeping in mind that problems are usually not solved when you are angry. If you have not recognized it yet, you will see soon enough that decisions made in anger are usually the wrong decisions. This means that whatever you use as step two, it has to be done when you are calm.


This technique will prove useful in the majority of cases.

When wronged by someone, ask yourself if the person who wronged you did what they did on purpose. In the majority of cases you will see that no harm was intended. Not only was no harm intended, but the chances are that this person was only compensating for a weakness of their own. What are your thoughts about this?

Now if no harm was intended, do you need to be completely angry? - 31891
