Need Anger Management?

If you're reading this, you've already accomplished the first step.

You've acknowledged that there is a problem and are willing to sort yourself out.

Well done!

I'll agree that I am at the same stage as you, while writing this.

Will we get to the other side??

Of course, we will!

Firstly, take a deep breath.

Let it cleanse your soul.

Remember the words that you commonly use in a fit of anger, especially towards your close ones.

Is there a phrase, sentence or action you find yourself repeating each time?

Think.

There will be something.

THIS "little something" is the key to your freedom.

Replace the sentences, words or actions in your head.

Chant this instead-

"I want to feel good about me at the end of this. I know that I must relax my muscles, breathe deeply and blank out mentally for a minute or two, so that I do not say/do things that I don't mean and don't want to. I AM in control. I am taking deeper, longer breaths. I know that only I am most important to me in the long term. This is insignificant."

Try every technique in the book-
  • Make a fist.
  • Count backwards from 10 to 1, relaxing more and more with each number.
  • Drink some cold water.
  • Walk out of the room.
  • Go for a brisk walk.
  • Exercise. (You might as well use the anger to benefit your body!)
  • Write in a diary and then tear away the pages into the tiniest fragments ever.
  • Punch a pillow.
  • Kick some dirt.
  • Scream into an empty room.
  • Clean out your closet.
  • Listen to soothing music.
  • Try dancing while you're at it. :)

The possibilities are endless.

The source is you.

Feel good.

Build the bridge and be sure to cross it.

You Can!
