Health Tip: How to Keep Anger in Check
Breathe, relax and focus
(HealthDay News) -- Anger, while a normal emotion, can quickly spin into something more if not controlled.
The American Psychological Association offers these suggestions for managing anger:
- Take deep breaths that come from the diaphragm, not just the chest.
- Calmly and slowly repeat a phrase or word, such as "relax" or "take it easy," until you feel that you've calmed down.
- Imagine a peaceful, relaxing experience.
- Practice daily yoga or another slow, relaxing type of exercise.
