The main goal of anger management is to manage the physical aggression and intense emotions that are caused by anger. There are many things in your life that you can’t control, avoid, or get rid of, such as the people or things that cause your rage. However, you can learn the best ways to control how you react to these situations.
You can start off by taking deep breaths and repeating a calming phrase or word to yourself, listening to music, doing yoga, or writing in a journal—whatever helps you feel more relaxed.
The roots of anger
There are many different things that can make a person angry. These include:
External events like humiliation, teasing, or loss of privileges
Internal events such as frustrations, injustices, and perceived failures
Anger might cause you to have externalizing behaviors, such as tantrums or verbal arguments. It can also cause you to have internalizing behaviors, such as symptoms of depression. Some people might show their anger through aggressive actions and words.
