10 Ways to deal with anger!

Hey readers,

I get frustrated a lot because of my autism. I tend to then result in going down the angry root, easy and it gets rid of that pent up energy. That being said it can have consequences and yes some angry can be good, not for me I use it wrongly. I have however over the years learnt slowly to redirect that angry into more productive ways. So, I am going to share with you ways that have helped me deal with anger.

1. If you can go to your room and punch a pillow it will do wonders and stops any angry.

2. Go out for a walk and get away from the stressful situation.

3. Write down them frustrations, you will be amazed at how therapeutic after it is to clear the thoughts from your head.

4. Count to ten, especially when in the moment. I find that when doing it stops the instant rage and can give you that breather to think clearer.

5. Walk away from the situation and give yourself time to calm down.

6. If it is something you need to make a decision or impulse give yourself time before doing some rash when you are not in the frame of mind to make a clear decision.

7. Anger tends to mask another emotion such as hurt, depression, sadness. It can be easier to be angry as a defense mechanism in order to protect yourself. If you can speak to someone whether be a doctor, friend or family member that you can trust to discuss deep feelings and allow them to come to the surface instead of being suppressed, may be a real benefit for your mental health long term.

9. Keep a journal of how you feel when anger occurs. Overtime you can evaluate what kind of things trigger the anger.

10. Have a plan in place for when the anger comes so you know what you can do when the anger occurs. You will tons better because you are taking action of managing your control and if it is anxiety based knowing how to respond or what triggers it can help you feel better about dealing with the situation.
