In the last post we covered the 5 step program for teens to deal with their anger issues. Some may find it extremely useful while other, although it’s still useful, will find it difficult to try and remain calm when anger hits them. That is why in this post we are going to discuss a few more ways that will help teens deal with anger.
Preventing anger is more than just trying to handle the situation when you get angry, there are things you can do to prevent that anger from ever coming to the surface. There are things you can do to stop the anger and anxiety building up inside you.
The first thing that relaxes our body is exercise. A simple jog or a walk in the park may do more good than you can imagine. Playing sports and being physically active is a great way to improve your mood and to ease the tension and let go of negative feelings, and this is a fact.
For some, not for everyone, music is a great way to relax and relieve the tension and anger feelings you may have. But it all depends on the type of music, as some types are known to decrease tension other may have the opposite effect, so be sure that you know the outcome of this exercise before you try it.
Another thing that may help you deal with anger is to write your thoughts down. You can keep a journal or write a blog, it doesn’t matter. When we share our feelings, even to a book that no one is going to read, it helps us recognize our feelings and emotions and helps us remove the negative aspect.
There is always Yoga, deep breathing, breathing exercises and stress management techniques that can help you control your emotions and keep you relaxed.
Talking about what is happening in your life, both good and bad, is always a great way to let go of stress and decrease the chances of getting angry.
There are great benefits to doing these things aside from preventing your anger issues. Yes, they will help you be cool and react differently to the situations that might lead you to anger. But they will also help you manage anger and every other emotional problem that you have, as well as anxiety and depression. These are simple universal techniques that can help each and every one of us relax and deal with our emotions better and more effective.
