Thich Nhat Hanh

“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.”

Use Anger to Channel Your Energy

When you are angry at something, you tend to only focus on the thing that has angered you.

With so many distractions in our present day, it is so easy to not remain focused on tasks. However, this is where being angry could benefit you.

Take time out to acknowledge you are angry and then get to working on a solution. You will be way more productive, and you will remain focused on the task at hand.

  1. Leave: getting away from the situation prevents regrettable instinctive reactions.
  2. Breathe deeply: research indicates deep breathing and repeating a calming phrase reduces anger intensity.
  3. Do something you enjoy: diverting your attention helps you to calm down.
  4. Do light exercise: this relaxes you and can relieve tension in your muscles.
