Manage your Anger



1. Don’t allow emotions to build up. Deal with situations as they happen.

2. Exercise is a useful way of dealing with stress. Regular exercise will help to increase your tolerance levels.

3. Participation in a sport such as karate/ judo will offer a physical outlet for anger. Involvement in these types of sport also encourage discipline and respect for others.

4. Take care not to consume too much alcohol as people often react more when their judgement is impaired.

5. Eat regularly and sensibly. We are more vulnerable to anxiety when our blood sugar level is low.

6. Be aware of what your personal anger triggers are and learn to deal with them responsibly.

7. It can also help to know what may affect a significant other person in your life. However remember that he/she must take responsibility for their own management of emotions.

8. Be prepared to take some time out if you think a situation may be getting out of control. It can be useful to have explained to the other person in advance that you may opt out for a brief spell but will be prepared to resume conversation later so that he/she does not feel rejected.

9. Agreeing with a partner about strategies you can use together to calm a situation. Be prepared to think creatively.

10. Don’t, hold on to past grudges. Let the past remain in the past and work together towards creating a more fulfilling future, by learning from past events, and taking action to avoid falling into the same traps over and over again.

**people who said they need anger management (dandoon o fayoora) i hope this helps!

*Kinan are the colors ok??

Stay away from people or things that make you angry or upset, and let those people know that what they do or say upsets you or makes you angry. Being angry is normal, you can't be nice and happy all the time, but like anything else, excessiveness in anything isn't good.

It is very hard not to burst out in anger. Often though I do it on purpose even if I know I can control myself in a situation.

Often though, people tend to burst out on purpose when the person on the receiving end is taken for granted.

Nice post!!
I feel getting angry is a normal human emotion. Only, like everything else, it should not be excessive.
If a person gets angry for nothing, then he needs anger mgmt classes asap!!

April 3, 2007 at 1:08 PM  

even though (el7amdilla) i don't have anger problems, a vacation always sounds so good :D

I can't agree more with the 'exercise' one.

I tried it myself! Last year I did nothing and I was miserable.

This year, I do exercise/sport at least 5 times a week and I feel so much better about everything around me.

Things that stressed/angered me last year seem like nothing when they occur this year.

Compliment that with good food, and you're already half-way through happiness :)

I really need to control my anger, it's getting worse =\
Can beating the person giving you hard time be included in the list? xp

April 3, 2007 at 5:22 PM

Good post. A lot of people need to know this stuff.

Regarding past grudges, I had a professor who told us we should treat people like we treat a dog in the sense that when a dog does something wrong today you don’t yell him about that and also add you did that the other day too and remember last month when you did that third thing, etc etc.

Three more things to appease anger: 1) te3awath min iblees
2) tiyadad (withoo2 for salat) - I heard il tiyidid calms anger down
3) Go for deep steady breathing

April 4, 2007 at 6:55 PM
