Everyone gets angry once in a while, but the ability to control that anger can keep an unpleasant feeling from erupting into something worse. Often, anger stems from feelings of frustration, defensiveness, powerlessness, or vulnerability. An essential step in managing anger is understanding it. Identifying stressors, such as relationship issues, financial strain, or workplace problems, can help get to the root of bitterness and manage it before it gets out of control. Feelings of anger are often accompanied by physical signs such as muscle tension and a clenched jaw. Some common tactics that can help dilute anger are:
Engaging in relaxing activities.
Spending time alone.
Expressing your frustration non confrontationally.
Asking for help.
