    What is Anger Management?

    Anger is a basic human emotion that we all experience from time to time. Dealing with perceived threats, confrontations and inconveniences are usual triggers of anger. In many ways, anger is a useful emotion as it can motivate us to stand up against injustice, confront problems and find solutions to move forward. Anger itself is not a problem, but the mismanagement of anger can be the root cause to a number of interpersonal and professional problems and conflicts.

    The mismanagement of anger can result in anger outbursts, violence, road rage, domestic abuse, marriage problems and workplace conflicts that can be difficult to amend. Suppressing anger is also a form of anger mismanagement and doing so can lead to emotional problems such as depression and disruptive behavioral patterns such as passive aggressive behavior.

    Either way, anger mismanagement is disruptive and should be addressed. The goal of anger management is prevention, or at the very least, reduction in the negative feelings and heightened arousal that an anger outburst brings. It involves learning how to cope with the emotion without expressing it in negative and destructive ways.

    Help for Anger Management

    Cognitive behavioral therapy and other forms of counseling are excellent ways for dealing with anger management and they can also help you address any underlying causes of mismanaged anger. There are also a number of anger management techniques and treatments which you can start to practice and incorporate into your daily life.

    Natural Remedies

    Anger Management Tips
    • Learn deep breathing and muscle relaxation techniques and practice them when you feel you are becoming irritable or angry.
    • Always remain objective in the face of disagreements and debates. Recognize when you are taking things personally and when your emotions are disproportionate. By being aware of these things you can remain distanced from the situation and not get caught up in irrational emotions.
    • Wait before you react. If you are angry, remove yourself from the situation if possible, or simply pause and count to 10 slowly. Only make decisions and react once you have cooled down and have had time to rationally reflect on the situation.
    • Don’t sweat the small stuff. Getting angry over things you cannot control such as traffic jams and broken appliances serves no purpose and it will simply put you in an irritable mood. Keep your eye on the bigger picture and use your energy to be productive and think of possible solutions.
    • Don’t fall into the trap of always blaming others. Take responsibility for your own behaviors and learn to accept that we all make mistakes.
    • Learn the art of patience. People will always make mistakes, misunderstandings are common, and there will always be things that you cannot control.
    • Find your sense of humor. Many situations that cause us anger can be turned around and viewed from humorous point of view.
    • Learn to face your emotions and deal with them as they come about. Talk out your emotions with someone close to you and really look into the possible underlying causes of your anger.
    • Engage in regular physical activities such as sports, aerobics, brisk walking, running or dancing. Exercise is a great way to work out any stress and unresolved anger.
    • Manage your stress levels by having a massage, listening to music or reading a book.
