Relaxation and mindfulness

Focusing your attention on a single task can help reduce your anger. Try changing your breathing by using the 4-4-4 method. Breathing in for 4 seconds, hold for 4 and out for 4. You could also try listening to music, tensing and relaxing your muscles or just being still for 5 minutes.

Problem-solving

Try asking yourself why you’re angry. When you’ve answered this question spend some time brainstorming practical ways you could resolve the issue. Set some goals and try and achieve them.

Try a change of scenery

Remove yourself from the environment that may be causing or increasing your anger. Going for a walk or even just moving to a different room can give you space to cool down.
