6 Ways to Dissolve Anger

Do you often get angry and disgruntled?

Ever been in a situation where you literally feel your blood boil?

Don't let anger eat away at you and destroy your health and harmony. Try these 6 effective ways to dissolve anger naturally...

#1 What is causing your anger? Why do you feel the way you do? What do you want? Whenever you have an angry episode, look at the root cause and why you're allowing this fierce energy to surface. When you know the triggers that cause you to react, you can go about changing the situation and changing the way you respond to those triggers.

#2 If you get angry often, realize that you have 2 choices: you can let the anger and negativity consume you or you can stop the 'habit' that has formed by changing your thoughts and the way you react for a healthier result. What do you choose?

#3 Feeling the anger rising? Find ways to re-channel that energy in a positive way. For example, massage the back of your neck or shoulders while focusing on something that would normally make you laugh... go for a walk or jog to 'run off' that negative energy... throw some paint at a canvas...do a silly dance...

#4 Change your self-talk. Let go of the negative responses, thoughts and feelings and replace with positive ones. Surrender, forgive, and release what doesn't nurture you or others.

#5 Breathe... with each out-breath, release those wounded, annoyed, frustrated feelings. Recognise that these anger outbursts only steal your time, energy, happiness, and contentment. Breathe in joy and breathe out whatever is stealing your joy.

#6 Laugh! Look for something that makes you smile. Comedy films or clips on YouTube or just the thought of something funny can dissolve negative energy. It's impossible to laugh and be upset and angry at the same time. Focus on laughter.

Learning how to dissolve angry thoughts and feelings may take some time. It's a process of change, which begins when you commit to changing how you feel and react. Get the support you need!

Remember, anger is just energy in motion (emotion) which you can change as soon as you recognise that YOU can!

Make a difference today!

Today's quote:

'Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.' -Buddha
