Anger is often a complex emotion with many layers. When you feel angry, you are probably experiencing many emotions all bound up together. Learning to separate those emotions and understand the cause of each of them is crucial.

Feeling angry can negatively impact daily life and the quality of your relationships. Working with a mental health professional can help you to understand your anger better. As you begin your journey towards healing and happiness, here are a few tips to get you started.

Use Relaxation Techniques 

Using relaxation techniques can be a beneficial exercise for many people. There are so many relaxation exercises that it can feel daunting to figure out which activity to try. Some may benefit from activities such as yoga or meditation. Others may want to explore exercise, reading, or painting. Explore activities until you find some that help you to relax. Step outside of your comfort zone; you never know what may benefit you the most.

Keep a Journal

Consider journaling your thoughts and feelings. What does the situation look like when you feel angry? Is it often the same situation over and over? Are other people involved?

Journaling can be beneficial for many reasons. It can give you an outlet to express your anger. You can release pent-up feelings and emotions into a safe and private space. You can also use journaling to explore patterns in your behavior. When you can understand your patterns, you can then explore your triggers. Knowing your triggers will help you to prepare better for specific situations.

Seek Out Root Causes

Where is your anger stemming from? Often it can be challenging to know where our struggles originate. Sometimes events in our childhood can affect our adulthood without our even fully realizing it. Work to understand where your anger began and what is continuing to fuel it. You will then be able to work on healing and moving towards your goals.
