I Became Aware of My Triggers and Consequently Learned to Control My Response to Situations

I Let Out My Anger on Paper Instead of People

When you’re angry, it’s important to distance yourself from the emotion and not become your emotion. Don’t say “I am angry”. Say “I feel angry”. This implies that a part of you is angry, not your whole being.

Other Psychological Techniques to Keep Your Anger at Bay

1. Define your anger.

2. Pause and take deep breaths.

3. Change your environment.

4. Force yourself to smile.
