5 Ways to Deal With the Anger

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Mad as a Hatter.”

  1. Take a deep breath or five. Breathing exercises can slow down your angry heart rate and give you time to evaluate the situation. Listening to music (not on CD’s) can also help to relax.
  2. Exercise – a good sweating session can make you feel better and channel your anger into something more productive.
  3. Use humor – release tension either by making a joke, or just letting the anger go while browsing funny things on 9gag.
  4. Identify possible solutions – if something can be done about the thing that angers you, then do it, if nothing can be done then there is no reason to stay angry.
  5. Ask yourself – will this be important 5 years from now. It always makes me feel better, when I get angry or stressed out about the unimportant things.
