Here are 4 fantastic tips to help you be the one in control of yourself, and not the hazardous madman called “Anger.”
1) Relax and visualize.
Calm yourself down. Take a deep breath. As you exhale, imagine all those bottled-up fury come from the nose and mouth. Release it and be free. Repeat this step over and over until you feel peace inside.
Then visualize being in a place where you feel most happy, calm, and relaxed. It might be a place like a beach, garden, scenic locations, or anywhere else you may think of. Just imagine being there and inhaling the essence of your serene environment. As a result, you will not find it hard to attain inner peace.
2) Pour out your anger to safe outlets.
You had a big quarrel with your former friend. He betrayed your trust. You want vengeance and you’re raving mad.
Hold it. Restrain yourself.
Try your best to get off him as far as you can. You don’t want to hurt anyone. Anger can possess your brain into doing something that you wouldn’t dare do before.
How will you then release your anger if you can’t restrict it anymore?
Buy a punching bag, then pour out all your rage in it. Punch it, kick it, strangle it. Imagine the punching bag is your enemy. When you’re done, you will feel a sense of satisfaction. You may even punch and kick through thin air if you desire.
Another way to release it is “SHOUT!” Find a distant place where you can be alone – a place where no one can hear you. At the very top of your voice, yell out loud “Aaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrgggggghhhhhhh.” You can choose any word you like provided that you release all those angry demons from the chest.
3) Forgive and forget.
Nothing could ease your mental and emotional pains better than by forgiving someone that has hurt you in the past. It is very unhealthy to burden yourself with unnecessary torture brought about by unpleasant memories of other people’s demeaning acts.
Moreover, if they have taken something important away from you, would it make sense to also sacrifice your health and lifestyle? Of course not.
