Three Steps to Be Calm When You’re Angry

Anger-Management_o_94581Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

At some point, everyone gets angry. The way you handle anger, though, is what distinguishes you as a respectable or an unreasonable person.

In both the office and home setting, the key to maintaining a happy life is to form good relationships with others. If you are the type of person that blows up or holds onto anger, most people won’t want you to be in their close circle.

To successfully handle your anger, try following these three steps.

1.)    Access just how ticked off you are.

Understanding why and how much is the first step to controlling the issue with class. To treat anger with the same regard each time you have an issue will most likely lead to pent up frustration because you really haven’t addressed each incident for what it is. To respect the emotions you have you is key to working through them.

2.)    Take a moment to chill out and chew on it.

We’ve all heard the advice to count to ten, but I think you should go a step further, and if possible, and take a day. Obviously, there are times when you can’t take that much time. Working in a restaurant or dealing with a difficult coworker often requires instant reactions. In that case, take a breath and try to mentally separate yourself from the situation and your anger to respond as calmly as you can. However, if the issue is a big one and you have the option to, take a day to write down your response, talk about the issue with someone close to you, and most importantly calm down.

3.)    Realize that nothing is forever.

Even your biggest issue will fade away into a distant memory if you separate who you are from your anger and move on. Realize that your emotion about whatever is angering you will not always be there. You’re bigger than the situation and you can overcome the emotions if you learn to access, ruminate and separate. It’s okay to be upset, but don’t let it control you or ruin your day. Just like anything else, we make the choice to be positive or negative. Learn to see the good stuff.

Criticize In a Calm Way to Get a Solution

Criticism is a tricky thing. There are many people we may find easy to criticize, be it sarcasm, with a joke or even with anger. However, the best thing to do is avoid all these temptations, and criticize in a manner that is helpful rather than hurtful.

Because honestly, even jokes that make fun of someone in a “nice way” are hurtful. And hurting the feelings of someone you really care about, someone you have to deal with regularly, or even someone you’ll never see again isn’t good for you or them. Guilt and anger are feelings that affect your health and your day, and it’s much more beneficial to calmly explain what’s bothering you to find a solution.

As a motivational keynote speaker, I know that people are stressed, angry,  and overwhelmed. Sometimes you might snap, but as soon as you realize your mistake, apologize and focus on a solution. Next time, it will be easier to deal with problems in a calm and rational manner from the start. Whenever you present an issue in an appropriate way, feelings may still get hurt, but not to the in as the same as yelling and hurling insults to someone. This brings a friendly way whereby you are far more likely to be able to work things out with the person.

A conversation that starts with yelling may result to unresolved disputes. It’s advisable that you approach criticism delicately. And also be able to come up with a solution.

When tragedy strikes, it can be hard to stay calm. When someone makes you angry, it may be almost impossible to keep from lashing out. However, when bad things happen, the best thing you can do is to try and remain calm.

If you can control your emotions and act rationally, the outcome will almost always be better than if you allow yourself to get out of control. Flying off the handle now may make you feel better for a moment, but you are far more likely to do something you’ll regret.

Try to maintain a calm persona overall and you will likely be able to better control yourself in the event of an unsettling incident. Some people are naturally more short-tempered than others, and you may need to train yourself to keep a calmer profile.

Everyone will have an outburst from time to time, and if you do, you must forgive yourself and move on. However, by remaining calm and rationally plotting out your next move, you will probably find yourself in a better situation in the end than you would have if you had acted out of frustration.

Benefits of Meditation Against Stress to Increase Productivity in the Workplace

Using Meditation Against Stress

Meditation relaxes our mind and gives us a better outlook towards stressful incidents; opening our minds to an increase in productivity in the workplace.

Stress may be a normal state everyday for people who do not manage their time and efforts well, or to people who receive continuous bombardment from their inconsiderate bosses, which may result in negative productivity in the workplace. Stress heightens our response towards a situation. It tells us whether we should fight or run. Now, because of too much stress, our body receives an overload of adrenaline, which can lead to agitation and hyperactivity.

In order to be calm and have a better approach to the cause of stress, a good option for a person may be meditation. Here are several advantages one may be able to get from meditation:

  • Heart rate slows down.
  • Breathing rate slows down.
  • Blood pressure normalizes.
  • Sweating lessens.
  • Adrenaline gland produces less cortisol.
  • Immune system improves.

These are just some of the benefits you may be able to get from meditation. Therefore, the next time you feel too much has been placed on your shoulders and you feel like you want to explode, meditate instead. When you are calm, it is easier to see solutions to the work you are facing. Pause, relax, close your eyes and breathe slowly. Go ahead and start thinking of relaxing situations, such as a cool breeze on a hot day, or sitting under a shady tree. You will surely be able to overcome the stress and things will be better, especially when it comes to your productivity in the workplace.
