Seneca’ Stoic Guide To Anger Management

  • Practice preemptive meditation: decide ahead of time how to deal with angering things.
  • Check anger as soon as possible: waiting can lead to loss of control.
  • Associate with serene people: moods are infectious.
  • Engage in relaxing activities: A relaxed mind doesn’t get angry.
  • Seek environments with pleasing colors: external circumstances affect mood.
  • Avoid discussions when thirsty, hungry or tired: you will be more irritable, and prone to escalate into anger.
  • Use self-deprecating humor: counteracts anger in the self.
  • Practice cognitive distancing: delaying responses by doing other things allows you a breather from tension.
  • Calm your reactions: slow down your steps, lower the tone of your voice, impose on your body the demeanor of a calm person.
  • Be charitabletoward others: it’s a path to good living.
