There are a few things you can do if you feel angry: Exercise, get more sleep, eat well, breathe deeply, ground yourself, scream into a pillow (though, you're cautioned to not throw or break things as this can lead to an unhealthy way of expressing anger long-term if you secretly harbour such tendencies).
My suggestions for the best known cure?
Anger tends to be a dishonest feeling.
It is expressed as a cover-up.
It's a safer go-to feeling as it can make you feel powerful and in control, and it can make others feel small and scared (if that's your aim).
Underneath that anger, lies the truth, like the biggest part of an iceberg.
Name the true feeling and you'll see how hard it is to remain angry.
Usually, what's really happened is that we feel hurt, or betrayed, or scared, or rejected, or worried, or overwhelmed, or tricked or attacked.
Name the real feeling and you'll not only reduce your anger, strengthen your relationships via honest and vulnerable conversations but you'll also get to know yourself in a way you never have before.
Until next time, stay safe - and sane - and make kind choices!
