Overcoming Anger Issues

Our daily lives tend to be governed by emotions. We usually make our decisions be it small or big based on whether we are happy, angry, sad, sorrow, boredom or frustration. Depending on the feelings they provoke we choose our behaviors and hobbies.

Out of all these one emotions which can harm us at worst, Anger weve all felt it whether as a fleeting annoyance or as full-fledged rage. Anger is a natural human emotion, usually not so healthy. It is also called a secondary emotion as we prefer to use anger to defend ourselves from certain sensitive feelings. But when it gets out of control it may become problematic and leads to aggression, outbursts, or even create harmful problems like job issues, personal relationships, also the overall quality of life that may result problematic.

Controlling anger is important for avoiding various things that you may regret. Before anger escalates, you can use these strategies for overcoming anger issues.

  • Identify your triggers
    Understanding how and what events are affecting you can help you control your situation and avoid unnecessary aggravation. Take a look at your routine and try to identify activities, times of day, people, places or situations that trigger irritable or angry feelings.
  • Exercise
    It is one of the most reliable sources that can help you minimize anger and relax your nerves. Go for a run, ride your bike, or play games outside. All of this will enhance your mind and body, making you healthy inside-out.
  • Count down your anger
    whenever you feel your temper attacking you just start counting either normal or reverse. When you count, your heart rate will slow down, and your rage will possibly fade away.
  • Practice Gratitude
    Take a moment to reflect on what is right when it feels all wrong. Try and appreciate remembering how many good things you have in your life and this will neutralize all your anger.
  • Tune in to music
    Music can do a miracle tune in any of your favourite tracks and let the music carry away all your negative feelings.
  • Give yourself a break
    Take out some time for yourself and spend it alone away from everyone. In this time you can process events and restore your emotions to neutrality. You will defiantly find it so motivating to get it into your everyday life this time away from others.
  • Maintain a Journal
    Often we are unable to express ourselves orally, in that case it is always better to write all your thoughts down, like how are you feeling, how you want to respond, what you want to do. This will help you calm your emotions down and re-evaluate them.

Despite the above strategies into practice, your anger is still spiralling out of control, or if you’re getting into or hurting others/yourself.


You must recognize you need professional help for managing your uncontrollable anger. Anger management reduces the emotional and physical excitement that anger can cause. It is generally impossible to avoid all the people and settings that provoke anger. But a person can learn how to control reactions and respond in a socially appropriate manner.

The support of the mental health professional in this process may help you. You can visit Hopequre for connecting best mental health professionals.
