Anger Management

Action Steps
Your angry responses are likely driving people away quicker than you realize or want. It’s important to take a serious look at your anger and how it is affecting your life. Becoming aware of your own personal signs (your feelings, emotions and thoughts) that your temper is starting to boil allows you to take steps to manage your anger before it gets out of control and you will likely benefit from learning techniques that help you change your anger responses in the heat of the moment. E.g
Focus on the physical sensations of anger. While it may seem counterintuitive, tuning into the way your body feels when you’re angry often lessens the emotional intensity of your anger.
Take some deep breaths. Deep, slow breathing helps counteract rising tension. The key is to breathe deeply from the abdomen, getting as much fresh air as possible into your lungs.
