By Melanie

I do not believe in going to bed mad; I believe in getting revenge before bed. Just kidding. I believe in working things out and realizing that there is no reason to be angry. You will always get through things, no matter what. Below, I am going to give you 7 ways to deal with anger …

7 Say Nothing

When you are angry, at first, it would be best to say nothing. The things you say could be hateful. You will end up regretting saying the things you say.

When you are ready to talk it out, try talking it out with the one you are angry with. During this time, you should not yell at the one you are upset with. Stay calm and no pointing fingers.

5 Listen to Music

I also like to listen to music when I am angry. I believe music is a good way to take the anger and turn it into good mood. So, do you have any songs that you like to listen to when you are mad?

4 Write a Letter

When I get upset, I write a letter that is addressed to the individual that I am angry with. By the time I am done writing or typing the letter, I have talked out my feelings with myself. I have found that what I am angry about is really not a big deal and I will get through it.

3 Meditate

When I am angry, I like to meditate. This clears my mind and takes it where I can think rationally. After meditation, I find that I am not as angry as I was to start with.

2 Smile

When you smile, you are releasing hormones in your system that will help you. Even if you have nothing to smile about, even if you are angry, try to smile. Remember, it does not cost anything to smile.

1 It’s Not Worth It

When I am angry, I tell myself that it is not worth it. Really, where does being angry get us? It gets the heart pumping fast, the blood boiling and the stress level up there. It’s not good for your health.

You should not let anger get the best of you. If you have an anger problem, yes, those do exist, then you should look into an anger management program. Do you think of yourself as being an angry person? Do you have any ideas on how to stop this problem?
