Aggression problem? Here are 5 tips to reduce anger

New Delhi: Noted American author Mark Twain once said that, “Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.”

Even though getting angry does more harm than good to us, it’s a natural response in any given situation. However, certain unpleasant situations can be avoided if we just sit back for a moment and think the situation through.

Here are five tips that will help you in anger management:


Running or working out helps to release that excess energy that is stored in the body as anger. It not only helps you to calm down but also helps to understand the situation better.



Even though analyzing a situation when one is angry is a challenging task, its always advisable to think and then react to avoid any regrets later.


Take a deep breathe

When angry, take deep breaths and count to ten or twenty if that’s required. Only a steady heart can enshrine steady thoughts.



Meditating might seem a bit difficult at first, but the process is all about controlling thoughts and is one good way of handling the entire situation.



Laugh Out Loud. It’s the most effective and easy remedy to calm down the stormy waters. You cannot be angry if you are laughing. So laugh a lot and let go off your worries.
