5 Anger Management Tips

  1. Try to differentiate between current and ‘regressed’ anger. If you’re angry with someone for more than 20 minutes, the chances are they’ve triggered a response to something that happened to you in the past that may not even be their fault.
  2. Think about the person you’re angry with. Will you still be angry with them in an hour, tomorrow or next week? If not, why ruin their day – and yours?
  3. Try to relax. Take some deep breaths and calm down. Maybe ‘count to ten’. Get your
    emotions back under control and try to think rationally.
  4. If you’re still angry, try using exercise as a release for your emotions, and to stimulate the production of endorphins that will improve your mood. If this isn’t an option, find somewhere private where you can ‘shout out’ your anger, or call a friend who you can offload your emotions to.
  5. Remember: nobody ‘makes’ you angry– it’s your choice whether that’s how you respond. And you’ll almost certainly feel happier with yourself if you deal with your anger positively and forgive them, rather than letting anger get the better of you.

FORCE FOR GOOD

It’s not hard to see that our world is full of tragedy. So many people act out of self-interest. Our moral compass is fractured. But as we destroy, we also have the power to exert a positive impact on the world.

This is what the Dalai Lama calls a FORCE FOR GOOD.

HELP YOURSELF

Most religions say to help one’s neighbor or the stranger or the widow, and to some extent, we are all those people so when we help others, we are helping those parts of ourselves.

LET THEM JUDGE YOU

Let them misunderstand you.

Let them gossip about you.

Their opinions are not your problems.

You stay kind, committed to love, and free in your authenticity.

No matter what they do or say, don’t you dare doubt your worth or the beauty of your truth.

Just keep shining like you do.

TRUST GOD

I will trust you Lord

I surrender my burdens to you

I believe that you will, will be done

I pray you grant me peace and discernment to accept the things that are out of my control

I have faith that no matter who comes against me, you will turn it around for my good

I trust the plan you have over my life and know it is better than my own

I pray that you continue to be with me and guide me as I move through this beautiful world you created

STAY DETERMINED

You obtain objects to help you lifting up in life and to achieve your goal.

Most important thing to always remember in life is your goal.

You set your goal, you must struggle to achieve it.

Once you achieve your goal, set another goal to stay determined.

KEEP GOING ON THE RIGHT PATH

Life requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect. It doesn’t get easy on anyone until we understand our core purpose of being alive and follow the plan which we are a part of.

Initially, we are a part of the plan of existence and later when we successfully walk through it, the plan becomes a part of our existence. We just need to be patient and keep going on the right path.
