Top Life Coach, Carole Ann Rice knows what anger can do to ourselves and the people around us. So, she’s revealing her top five ways to tame your anger inside of you:
Not only does anger hurt others but holding onto it also hurts you. Even if you shouted at someone else, you’re the one with the red, unctuous face and high-blood pressure,feeling hot and panicky. Anger has the potential to hurt the one feeling it just as much as than the one on the flip side.
Is it that people have misunderstood something? Has there been a serious injustice? Anger is very much a response to not getting what you want or feeling misunderstood.
People misinterpret each other all the time. Anger can be a natural response but it’s not always the most correct or measured solution. Resorting to anger can be misjudged at times. Don’t shout, try articulating what you feel in a cool, examined way.
No matter what function you’re at, it’s ok to sidebar yourself away. Family members can often push our buttons, but instead of causing a scene, go off and take a walk. Talk to a reliable friend. Spend some time alone, heck, even beat up a pillow to release how you feel! Get it out of your system so when you return, you feel more cathartic.
Do you feel hurt? Undervalued? Misunderstood? You shouldn’t keep it bottled up inside, because you’re just asking for an eventual explosion. Externalise how you feel by saying, “I feel X because you did Y,” which is a great way to explain yourself without attacking someone outright.
