11 Ways To Control Your Anger 😠

11 Ways To Control Your Anger 😠

There are days when we feel annoyed with someone or something and there are lots of shuffled reasons leading to anger in our mind. We need to control our anger but it is difficult to do it.

The simplest thing to do is  breathe in – breathe out. Sometimes we have to control anger to avoid creating a huge issue. Sometime we need to delay the reaction for the right time. It’s true anger is an important part of emotions and must be expressed. Consistently holding your anger for a longer time inside mind can lead to emotional imbalance.

The habit of having control over anger can help us to calm down and take the right decisions. We can find many institutes and health-care management providing anger control therapy. While yoga can help us to have a balance over emotions, there are other simple ways to change the mood. Whenever we are in the angry mood, we can try any of these 11 things :

1]Involve yourself in house chores.

Doing any single work can divert your mind.

When we are trying to perform any house related work, we can keep our mind focused in cleaning things or keeping things neat. While performing these type of tasks, brain slows the anger amount. Everyone may not like doing house chores. Everyone may not be fit enough to carry out these type of work. But, all those people who are capable of doing it can adapt this technique to simmer down.


2]Pick up one of your hobbies and do it for a while, this can make you happy as well.


Painting, crafting, playing instruments, and designing work diverts the thoughts to the creative form. You will feel better by  expressing anger through the paint or music. Reading book or writing books takes the mind to the imagination world. This in turn, helps the senses to shift away from anger. 

3]At the office, do any other work or learn something.

We may not have all the privileges of controlling our anger at office. So, the best thing is to learn something new. It can even be the smallest things. Keeping mind busy in learning something new diverts mind from anger. You can continue to do the same given work or change the task for a while. It is one of the ways, to let the anger slip on downhill. 


4]Play some outdoor sports.

This can bring enthusiasm. Playing outdoor games with other players levels up the energy. You can put the anger into the game to win it. For some people anger can work as negative effect to focus on game whilst for others anger itself can help to focus hard on the game. Whether you win or not, spending time playing sports assists in healthier mental health. 



5]Play indoor or online game.




Playing indoor games with friends, families or at other gaming centers helps the person to enjoy those little moments. Online games can also help the person rather than rushing the negative thoughts in mind. It is as good as engaging yourself in some activity to relieve your mind.


6]Speak with some family member or friends.




Talking about the issue that made you angry on the first place, can help to relax the mind. Discussions related to different things in the conversation adds to mellow down. 


7]Cook your favorite food.

Cooking is one of the skills needs to be acquired to live independently. Some people love eating food , the colloquial term as foodie. You can buy your favorite food from outside but cooking it by yourself gives satisfaction to mind. When your mind and tummy is satisfied, anger will either have less space or no space to stay. 





8]Listen to the music.

Listening to your favorite music takes you to the imagination world. You fly to the other side of your expected world. This aids in soothing your heart and hence, your mind.


9]Dance on your favorite music.

Dancing changes the mood to happiness. You don’t have to be a trained dancer. You can just do any jolly steps by yourself. You can watch song videos or dance videos and perform it simultaneously. It will act as an exercise and keep you happy. When the happy emotion takes over the room, anger vanishes.


10] Watch shows/videos/ series




You can watch any entertainment or your favorite genre shows/videos/series. This helps in your mind in watching and reacting to those shows. Your anger will eventually slide to low scale.
