Published by kappello on

Is anger always negative, well ,no.  If you are being used, abused, treated with disrespect etc.., then being in righteous anger is a positive.  Understanding healthy and righteous anger is as important as knowing how to deal with it.

When dealing with, healing anger issues, you may get a lot of suggestions for anger management strategies. Each of them is meant to help those hot-tempered and frequently have fits of rage individuals. Anger, although a healthy and normal reaction to upsetting situations, if not managed in a healthy way can be intense to the point of violence. When a person experiences regular episodes of angry, being reckless, there’s a problem, one that needs to be dealt with. Anger management strategies are designed to help an individual return to a healthy existence.

One way is to take  a time-out is, ,which is seen as a healthy management strategy. Removing oneself from a situation or person that makes a one angry is practicing time-out. This  strategy might can be a ride in the car or a walk on the beach, playing sports or working out will help an individual to use up some of the extra energy without involving others. Some other suggestions  are reading, listening to music or sitting alone in silence. Each of these activities are healthy anger management strategies.

A second example of a healthy anger management strategy is, owning up to the feelings and behavior. Although the anger is usually brought on by an irritating situation or a confrontation with another individual, the anger actually belongs to the angry and reckless person. Only the person who’s experiencing the anger issues can control their outbursts. Only the person with the anger issues can learn anger management strategies and how to deal with their feelings in a healthy way. When an individual becomes mad or upset they need to try to disclose the reasons for their anger whether it is hurt, fear, frustration sadness, confusion , jealousy or whatever seems to bring out the rage.

Another healthy anger management strategy is to look back on those situations that upset us and try to find ways to make changes. Learning the cause of the anger can help one to avoid those situations. Not only might the person learn to avoid these incidents but they might also choose to take what they’ve learned and attempt to deal with the situation without bursting into a frenzy.

A fourth suggestion regarding healthy management strategies is to confront the situation or person. Talk to the person or people involved, calmly, to try to determine the root of the problem. The angry individual might actually discover that the whole thing was a mix-up, a misunderstanding. The individual might also try asking the person or people in the situation to think about their behavior and even change it. It may be surprising what people would be willing to do to help the person who is attempting to deal with their problems with anger. Hopefully everything will work out for the best. If not there has to be room for acceptance. Sometimes a person must simply accept the situations and people they cannot change and either deal with it or walk away.

Learning healthy anger management strategies should be considered by those with continuous burst of anger and reckless behavior in response to situations. There are e-books on here you can purchase to help with these issues, meditation tracks.  As I said, anger is at times justified, but violent behavior and reckless behavior is not.
