How Anger Manifests Physically and 7 Ways to a Healthier Outlook

Dealing with anger in a productive way means expressing it in a way that is not cruel or abusive. In the moments when you are most angry, doing some deep breathing can calm you enough to think more clearly in the moment. Resist the urge to talk to someone at the height of your anger. Give yourself time to cool down. Be honest with yourself about what caused you pain and talk to the person after you’ve had time to process things. If talking to the person who upsets you is not a safe option, or if you’ve tried coping strategies but still feel angry, don’t give up.
