Humans are but the one wonder that have transformed the whole world. They have proved their brilliance by the minds they possess. However, like everything, we humans do have some flaws, Anger being one of them.
It is amazing how simple things can tick us off. How traffic can make someone peaceful and calm curse in a broad daylight. How an argument can lead into cold wars for days. How a simple co-operation needed turns into a bloody war when not negotiated to. And all this happens because of anger.
It is obviously a normal human emotion, but is it healthy? Of course, if we take out in a negative way, it is NOT.
So, today we are going to see how exactly we should control our anger before we are turned in on those ‘anger management’ classes. If not seizing control over your dreadful temper, it may take a dangerous toll on your health and on your relationships.
1. THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK
It is obvious that you may say things you will regret later. No amount of ‘sorrys’ will bring the happy atmosphere back because words said in anger have a deeper impact on someone’s mind. Always remember that. So make sure you collect and recollect your thoughts before opening up your mouth.
2. BE ANGRY WHEN YOU ARE CALM
That’s right. Once you are aware that the anger cloud has lifted off, then speak calmly and peacefully and let your anger out. Tell the other person what is exactly bothering you. Tell the staff what frustrates you most. Tell them anything. Just make sure you tell them when you’re not shaking with anger, that is, when your head is clear from fury. That way, you will be able to state your concerns and needs clearly and directly without shouting or yelling or hurting anyone. Chances are that the required person will understand your problems faster.
This may sound foolish but the human mind once stresses, it never relaxes. You might get worked up at the smallest of situations and you won’t even realize that. So do some sort of physical activity so that your mind is clear of stress and tension. By chance, if you feel angry, go for a jog or do some other kind of physical activity.
4. TAKE A TIMEOUT
Breaks are important. Whenever you feel like you have had enough of a stressful day, take timeouts. Those few quiet moments can lessen the worry and might prepare you for what’s coming next. It will also make you calmer during situations where you are likely to get irritated or angry.
5. TRY TO LOOK FOR SOLUTIONS
Are you the one who won’t stop complaining because every wrong thing seems to happen with you? If the answer is yes, then stop complaining and stop getting angry. Instead of that, you could focus your energy on trying to find out solutions for it. Always remember that being angry will NEVER fix anything. Rather it will make things worse, which is of course not what we want.
So next time whenever you feel like you are getting worked up, try these. And remember, ANGER NEVER BENEFITS ANYONE OR ANYTHING. IT RATHER DESTROYS EEVRYTHING.
