Inexpensive Ways To Manage Anger

Yesterday I had a lengthy conversation with a person who i shared inexpensive ways to begin working on anger management. I have a lot of suggestions however here are only a few:

Outlets are important. Anger is a secondary emotion meaning that something always precedes it. Currently, most new clients enrolling in AM are having anger breakdowns that are precipitated by stress. Stress from not working or over working for an example. The best cure for stress related anger is to have outlets. Physical activities, reading, dancing, cooking classes whatever a person regards as fun. Fun by the way is considered by most Americans as an "extra" in their life when in fact fun is an actual physiological necessity and natural medicine for good health.

Taking breaks can be very good. If you feel yourself getting stressed. Get up, take a walk, or go watch a movie. Simply remove yourself from what is starting to frustrate you and get a fresh perspective. You can leave and return as often as you need until you get a hold of the stress. Remember stress is not all in your head however that is where it gains its momentum.

Good music in the car during traffic is great. No rock or rap as both styles of music exacerbate the frustration of traffic. Try nice, melodic sing alongs like the Temptations or Simon and Garfunkle.

Reduce radio, TV and Internet news by 60 percent. Constantly having your ear to the news is stress relating and actually statistics have shown a huge number of minor to major incidents are caused by being consumed by death, pestilence, disease and the Dow/stock market. Never set your alarm to the news to wake you up.
