Anger Management is key in helping others control anger. One of the big things is understanding the meaning and intent of others. When they are misunderstood, anger can erupt and cause issues in all aspects of life.
The article, “How to Rethink and Manage Anger” by Ilene Strauss Cohen looks at how anger should be understood and how to avoid triggering it. The article states,
“When people respond to situations with anger, there’s usually more to the story. Behind their rage is a fear of being hurt, a fear of not being able to stand up for themselves, or a fear of unjust or unfair things happening. These are all understandable feelings. And anger is also appropriate in many situations. The experience of anger isn’t wrong; it is when we express that anger in negative ways that it can be harmful to our lives. ”

When stressed and we become angry, we usually seek to fight or maybe even flee. These are our basic instincts. When we are unable to allow emotion to burst out, and due to social graces, are forced to restrain ourselves, our body internally suffers. We cannot yell and scream or hit someone when angry, but later we can release the natural emotion and energy through exercise. Certain exercises can reduce stress and anger.
The article, “Does exercise help with anger? This is how a workout can release frustration” by Chloe Gray looks at how we can utilize healthy exercise to deal with unresolved anger. She states,
“The fact that there is a positive outlet for this anger is great news that is scientifically backed. In a study of 3,403 participants by Stockholm University, people who exercised at least two to three times a week were found to experience significantly less depression, anger, cynical distrust and stress. As well as having long term effects on our emotions, exercise can immediately impact our anger too: a 2016 study by the German Sport University in Cologne found a significant reduction of aggressive feelings after both rowing and combat exercise.”

The article, “Managing Anger: Real Steps To Stop The COVID Rage” by Elizabeth Broadbent reviews how we can better control our anger. She states,
“Managing anger means noticing and naming it in the moment, and when I see people moving into my space or not wearing a mask, I feel angry. I am personally offended. I can name it now. I don’t excuse it or hide it or justify it. I feel angry. And I also recognize that it’s okay to be angry. Anger is a feeling. We can control how we act. We can’t control how we feel. In other words, I can name my feeling. But that feeling doesn’t give me a right to act out.”

For one, the next time you “lose it,” your immune system will be compromised for roughly four hours, leaving you more susceptible to illness. That’s no small vulnerability in our COVID-saturated world. What’s more, persistent agitation increases the risk of strokes, heart disease and early death. Also, these caustic feelings corrode mental well-being, sometimes leading to a nasty condition called “agitated depression.”

Stressors and change create grief and anger. How we manage our anger and grief in relationship to stressors with other people is critical to our social interaction with others. For better communication, health and better social relationships, conflict resolution is critical.
Conflict resolution involves better communication skills, control of emotion due to stress and loss, patience and understanding. In conflict resolution, stress management and anger management classes, individuals need to identify what type of behavior their possess in their interaction with other people.
Assertive behaviors are the healthiest of the behaviors. They establish boundaries, respect self, respect the other person, and meet one’s needs in a healthy way. Non assertive behaviors on the other hand deny the wishes and needs of self at the expense of others. There is a lack of boundaries and ability to respect one self over the needs of others.
Aggressive behavior is a selfish behavior. It turns to conflict when establishing boundaries and the needs of others. It does not respect the needs of others nor the feelings of others when establishing itself in a conflict.
For example, an assertive behavior at a restaurant would return an ordered item that was ill prepared. It would so in a civil and polite way, describing the issues and find resolution. A non-assertive behavior would meekly accept the discrepancy in the order and say nothing for fear of causing a scene. An aggressive behavior would demand the order be fixed without politeness and be filled with a litany of insults
Obviously, assertive behavior is the most social, healthy, and effective behaviors during conflict. They meet the need of the person but also find resolution in a polite and effective way. One can be assertive through non verbal clues, or verbal clues. How one stands, speaks in tone, and looks at a person are parts of an assertive personality. They lack dismissive behaviors or aggressive and angry body movements.
Verbally, an assertive behavior communicates. They describe the issue, express feelings, specify what is needed, and refer to consequences. In doing so, obviously, listening is also key but also elaborating on one’s needs is also key. How we communicate is key to reducing anger, stress, anxiety and violence.
It is important when resolving conflicts to use specific types of words. The words “And” and but” are important ways to express conflict. Instead of eliminating the feelings of others via the word “but “it is better to include the word “and” as a way to address and not eliminate another’s point of view.
Another verbal cue in resolving conflicts is to avoid the pronoun “you” when addressing someone else. Instead, use the pronoun “I” as not to be accusatory towards another person when pointing something out. As with “you”, avoid direct accusatory words such as “why” which can force a person with an opposing view on the defensive.
If one incorporates understanding, patience, and kindness with an assertive personality, they can better communicate and address conflict issues that emerge due to anger and stress. It is imperative to be able to communicate and resolve issues of conflict in a civil but effective way. It is not only socially better but also best for health and wellbeing. The less conflict, the less stress, anxiety and anger

Many times people say things in anger they regret. Words can damage relationships permanently. It is important to watch one’s tongue when in anger and never allow emotion to get the best of oneself when dealing with other people. Learning to what to say when angry is critical. It is a life skill that can help one stay out of trouble and not hurt family and friends.
The article, “The Thing To Say Every Time You’re Angry” by Laura Vanderkam looks into what is best to say when anger overtakes. She states,
“In this angry, anxious, and polarized time, it’s easy to lash out, whether on social media or at people in your real life. And we often end up wishing we didn’t:One survey found that a majority of social media users had posted something they regretted.”
Learning to avoid the conflict with immediate verbal slashes is critical to good relationships with others. Learning how to walk away and say what gives you more time to reflect is key to not allowing emotion to dictate words you may later regret.
