Take Some Deep Breaths.

Take Some Deep Breaths.

When anger strikes, it’s easy to get caught up in the heat of the moment. Your body often enters a state known as the fight-or-flight response, which helps prime your body to take action.

In order to take control and reduce feelings of anger, it can be helpful to focus on your breathing.

Focus on taking slow, deep, controlled breaths (atleast for 10 seconds) .Rather than taking shallow breaths that only fill your chest.

It can give you time to calm yourself, take some moments to think, and respond in a way that isn't going to have long-term negative effects.

Recognise your Response to Anger.

Recognise your Response to Anger.

Feelings of anger are usually accompanied by both physical and mental symptoms.

It is important to remember that anger isn't always expressed in the same way.

Outward expressions of anger such as yelling or breaking things may be more apparent, but anger can also be expressed in more inward way.

When you direct your anger inward, you might do things to punish yourself. You might criticize yourself with negative self-talk or even engage in actions that result in self-harm.
