    It's night here and most of people are asleep.(too soon but they did anyway) GOD! I'm just thinking of what happens if I do any of that. I think all neighbours wake up in panic and surprise to see what the hell has happened to me.
    Unfortunately I even can't find anyone around to shout at(yeah sometimes I tell them I need to shout at you otherwise I got mad...)I even can't sit while I'm typing this post...:grumpy:

    Damn

    Meditate - empty the mind of all thought.

    Go pinch one of the sleepers' nose.
    His reaction will relieve your present anger.

    I have a fowl temper especially in the winter, I find ranting about my feelings about anything a good release, particulalry though in my case, I'm not angry about anything so that might not work. But by far in a way the best way to vent anger would be to throw yourself at nature like Evo recommended. Walk up a mountain then walk down a hill.

    My temper is a bit unstable as well. I just listen to music or take a nap and it goes away for the most part.

    Only time it stays is if it's relationship related or if it has to do with doing horrible on a midterm or something (basically academically related stuff). Relaxing music helps me a lot though.

    I'm black belt in taekwondo. Most of the anger that can hit u comes through listning to what others have said. In martial arts we have two types of fighting strategies. One is called linear other is circular. In analogy with circular technique u can use your ears to first listen what other person has said.....analyze it without delay... and then u utilize your posture and thinking to loop that anger back to its producer, without let him know....u can check it out, it is very lethal weapon.

    It requires practice and experience to use this technique.

    For each of you who feel angry too much, stop and think: do you drink too much caffeine (e.g., coffee, tea, Coke/Pepsi), or perhaps get too much sugar (e.g., milkshakes, candy, etc.)? This could be affecting your mood without your knowledge.

    Yes, that's a lot. You might try going without tea (at least the kind with caffeine) for a few days and see if it makes a difference.

    For me it's a matter of putting the anger into context. Why are you angry? If I spend the day being angry, will that change anything? When I'm angry, who suffers from my anger? I try to keep these things in mind and allow myself to see the issues aside from the anger. This in turn helps me to simply turn it off; or really, to separate "it" from "me".

    I nearly had a heart attack yesterday when it came to my attention that a minor shipping issue might seriously screw-up a project that I have been working on for the last four weeks - potentially damaging my relationship with one of my top three customers. When I felt that pumping to my brain and my heart started racing, I simply refused to get upset [okay, the poor girl at the factory might not agree, but I apologized]. After I hung up the phone, in my mind I insisted that this is not as bad as it seems; that somehow this will all work out, which it did. Things are almost never as bad as they seem.

    Visualize what makes you angry...

    Visualize it as a pillow you own(not a nice pillow, just a normal one).

    Look at what you hate in the pillow...

    THEN KILL THE PILLOW.

    That, or you can break stuff.

    A couple of months ago I was super red faced pissed off at a particular situation, and for the grace of God at that moment the phone rang from the same sales guy the 3rd time that week: "Hi, would you like a trial of the STAR paper for only... " followed by a "Hey Dude... could you possibly manage to F%$# the HE{{ off for a couple of months"... Click.

    That was instant relief.

    Serenity NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:tongue2:

    Huh? But hey getting angry once a week isn't alot, is it? o:)
    My boss was even surprised that I don't drink tea at work.
