Breathe slowly

Count to ten

Counting to ten is a tried and tested way of dealing with anger. Stop, and slow down.



Channeling that angry energy into running, walking, swimming, yoga and meditation can help.

Look after you

Drugs, alcohol and lack of sleep can cause anger issues. Take away the root cause by looking after yourself.


Get creative

Writing, making music, dancing, painting or any other creative activity can release tension and feelings of anger in the long run.


Talk about how you feel

Calmly talking about how you feel with a pal, who doesn’t make you angry can help you get a different perspective.
