It's important to understand where your anger is coming from before you can manage it effectively. Everyone experiences anger differently, but there are some common triggers that can lead to unprecedented levels of rage.
One trigger may be feeling like you're constantly being put down or treated unfairly. If you feel like you're not being given the same opportunities as others, or that your efforts are constantly being belittled, it can lead to a build-up of resentment and frustration.
Another trigger may be feeling like you're not in control of your life. If you feel like everything is happening TO you instead of FOR you, it can be easy to lash out in anger. You may feel like you have no control over your circumstances and that can be very scary and overwhelming.
If you're able to identify what's causing your anger, it will be much easier to manage it effectively. Once you know what your triggers are, you can start to develop a plan for how to deal with them in a constructive way.
There are a number of things you can do to try and manage your anger and rage on your own. This includes:
-Identifying your triggers: what are the things that tend to set you off? Once you know what these are, you can try to avoid them or be prepared for them.
-Counting to 10: this gives you a chance to take a step back and calm down before responding to whatever has triggered your anger.
-Breathing exercises: deep breathing can help to relax your body and mind, making it easier to deal with difficult situations.
-Visualisation: picturing yourself in a calm place can also help to take the edge off anger.
-Exercise: releasing endorphins through exercise can improve your mood and help to diffuse anger.
-Talk to someone: talking about what's making you angry can help to lessen its power over you.
