    Breathing not only keeps you alive and moving, but it also calms you down. You have to take note of your breath going in and coming out from you, and you need to accept things when they come your way. Breathe and enjoy the process at the same time, and you will notice that after about ten breaths you are feeling much better. This will expose your rational side.

    Take your Time

    Most often we tend to do some horrible mistakes at the heat of the moment, for example, putting down a resignation letter and abusing the boss. Yes, this can be fatal to your career. Therefore, you have to take your time. If your boss has lashed out against you, then you will need to slow down your reaction time. Once the initial hote headed madness has passed, then you take action. You will come up with a more sensible reproach.

    Let it Out

    You could let out your anger by releasing all your fury on something else. Keep a stash of plates and glasses for this purpose! You could smash a few each time you are going mad. This way you will release all your anger on those harmless, lifeless plates and glasses, and will come back to a civilized life once again.

    Exercise Regularly

    Ask people who work out regularly, ask them how they feel after they have worked out. They will tell you that it is like the calm after the storm, yes you heard it right. You feel at peace, you have released all the pressure and anger in the gym and now you are free from all of that. You are more settled and composed.

    Shift Focus

    Much like the digital SLR cameras that make any picture into an artful image, shifting focus to something else would make you a better person. Shift focus each time you think that you are on the verge of an outburst. You should think something else that will diminish the feeling of anger and make you feel better.

    Look Within

    According to some experts, most anger in men stem from failures that lay within. Therefore, you should look within to look for an answer.
