Tips for Men


Bridling Your Anger Sport:
Stick to a regular exercise routine and take up the sport you practise whenever you feel your anger rising. If you haven’t settled on an exercising scheme, try out various types of exercise to find the ones you enjoy best (jogging, weight lifting, Pilates and so on).

Deep breathing, also known as diaphragmatic, is a useful technique in appeasing anxiety. If you’d like to try it, breathe slowly, making sure you pause at the end of each inhale and exhale. This way of breathing causes your stomach to ‘inflate’ like a balloon when you inhale and ‘deflate’ when you exhale.

Your chest, on the other hand, does not expand. If it does not work well for you, test it once again, this time lying on your back with your knees pulled up and your feet flat on the floor. You may also rest your hand on your stomach to feel its rise while you inhale.
Soothing activity:
Take up a hobby or some activity which you are keen on and can devote to. These may be gardening, yoga, painting, playing music or whatever else you can come up with.
Deeper understanding of yourself and the other person:
Becoming conscious of what triggers your anger can appear to be the major step in dealing with it. Having realized this, you can pause at the onset of such feelings, which means you can also opt for another kind of behaviour.

So, next time you are attacked by feelings of anger, try saying to yourself ‘That’s what it’s all about. I get furious every time I sense the others think I’m not doing my best’. If there’s a person involved in raising your anger, it’s also worth trying to understand his/her perspective.

They may as well believe they’re right; by attempting to see their point (even if you still disagree), you might manage to quiet your own anger and even respond in a way they could appreciate.
