You cannot change who you are but you can control what you do. Here are some things that you can do today that will help you better control your anger in the future.


Meditation is a very old technique with a lot of benefits one of which is reducing anger. You will understand your anger when you meditate you will see yourself with other person eyes and see where the anger was unnecessary. In the process become less angry.

It is a great method that I use a lot of time thinking ahead. What do I mean by think ahead? It is simple whenever you will anger building in you which you will be able to do after some meditation sections.
You will see that you are getting angry and trying to do something like raising your voice or punching someone. What you will do is think ahead what that mean is that you will see what will happen if you what you are thinking of doing. How will it affect things? If you do not like the results then control yourself and chose a different path.

Get your expectations right

A lot of your anger comes from the wrong expectations from the world. Like you expect that if you drive right everyone in the world will also follow the rules. But we all know that that is not the case so when someone cuts you in traffic you get angry. But if you do not expect anyone to drive right then you will not get angry at someone cutting you.
It how you chose to see the world it does not matter how the world really is it is your perception that matters.

Better understand yourself

The more you know yourself, the more patience you have for what you see in others.
Erik Erikson

The best is saved for the last you can only able to control your anger if and only if you know yourself. If you know the entire situation in which you will get angry and prepare for them in advance then there is a better chance of your making peace.
You always have a choice but the most important thing is that if you are ready to take the action necessary.

Now you know why anger is bad for you. It can destroy your health, relationships, future and inner peace. That are not all the things that anger can destroy you know what the things that you want to save are.

You also know some of the things that you can do today that will help you get better at controlling your anger. But like anything in life if you want something you have to work for it.

Like you want to build a healthy body you have to eat right and exercise. You have to put the work to get the result that you want. It is same with anger management you cannot get rid of your anger but you can learn to better manage it.
