How to Control Your Anger
Anger can motivate us to right wrongs, stand up for ourselves, and change the world.  But
unrestrained anger can damage your health, strain your relationships with family and friends, and blind you to consequences of rage-fueled words and actions. 

We all get mad sometimes.  Don’t let your anger get out of control, though.  Count to 10, and try some of these anger management tips:

  • Recognize your stress.  Anger is a symptom of stress, but often we react to the symptom—a hurtful comment or a malfunctioning computer—instead of the underlying cause (our fears or frustration).  Pay attention to your mood and physical symptoms—perhaps a clenched jaw or shortness of breath—so you can direct your response appropriately, not at the nearest target.
  • Take a time-out.  If it’s at all possible, back away from stressful situations before anger overwhelms you.  Use the time to regain control of your emotions:  Breathe deeply, relax, and think through the situation.  Is this really worth getting upset over? 
  • Adjust your perspective.  Before you explode at your co-worker or family member, turn your point of view around.  Did she mean to annoy you?  Does she have a legitimate point?  A careless comment doesn’t have to start a war.
  • Communicate your feelings.  No one can read your mind, and other people may not realize how you feel or what you want from them.  Explain your point of view as calmly as you can, using “I” statements: “I got angry when you __ because __” instead of making an accusation: “You never want to do things my way!” 

Concentrate on finding solutions, not winning the argument.

Como Controlar Tu Enojo
La ira nos puede motivar a correjir errores, defendernos, y cambiar el mundo. Pero la ira incontrolada puede dañar la salud, crear tensión en su relación con familiares y amigos, y cegarte a las consecuencias que causan las palabras y acciones de rabia.

Todos nos enojamos a veces. No dejes que tu ira se salga de control. Cuentah asta 10, y trata alguno de estos consejos para controlar el enojo:

  • Reconose qual es tu estrés. El enojo es un síntoma de estrés, pero a menudo reaccionamos ante este síntoma-un comentario que hace daño o una computadora que funciona mal-en lugar de la causa subyacente (nuestos miedos o frustraciones).
  • Toma un descanso. Si es del todo posible, aléjese de situaciones estresantes antes de que la ira abruma. Utilice este tiempo para recuperar control sobre sus emociones. Respire profundamente, relajese, y reflexione sobre la situación. Realmente vale la pena enojarme?
  • Ajuste su perspectiva. Antes de que explote contra su  compañero de trabajo o familiar, de vuelta a su punto de vista. Intento molestarte? Tiene un punto legítimo?
  • Comunique sus sentimientos. Nadie puede leer su mente, y otra gente puede no darse cuenta de como se siente o que es lo que necesitamos de ellos. Explique su unto de vista con tanta calma como sea possible, usando Declaracciones-Yo: “Me enojé quando dijiste ___ porque ___” en vez de hacer accusasiones. “Nunca quieres hacer cosas a mi manera!”

Concentrece en encontrar soluciones, no en ganar el argumento.
