Expert advice on Anger Management

An ideal goal of anger management is to control and regulate anger so that it does not result in problems.

Do you shout when someone cuts you off in traffic? Does your blood pressure rockets up when your friends refuse to cooperate? Anger is a normal and even healthy emotion — but it's important to deal with it in a positive way. Uncontrolled anger can take a toll on both your health and your relationships.

Handling anger can be a tough situation. Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Seek help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse.

Our Teentalkindia expert gives advice on anger management. Start by considering these 8 anger management tips:

1. Think before you speak: In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything and allow others involved in the situation to do the same.

2. Once you're calm, express your anger: As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but non-confrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them.

3. Get some exercise: Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry, like go for a brisk walk or run, deep breathing, relaxation exercise or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities.

4. Take a timeout: Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better.

5. Identify possible solutions: Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Is your partner late for date every time? Schedule your date a few times when he/she is relatively free.

7. Don't hold a grudge: If you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation and strengthen your relationship.

8. Use humor to release tension: Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though — it can hurt feelings and make things worse.

The good news is that getting anger under control is easier than you think. With an insight about the real reasons for your anger and these anger management tools, you can learn to keep your temper from hijacking your life.

How to impress that someone special

Admit it or not, we all that someone special whom we want to woo over us. It’s nothing new and nothing wrong for us to try to impress someone, as far as that special someone is the ‘one’.

Have you ever discussed with your bestie whether he/she knows what the tactics to impress someone are? Probably not. Because we don’t want to acknowledge the fact that there is someone who means that much to us that we’d do things to please him/her. But that doesn’t change the reality. And we all, at some point of time or other, wish to influence someone.

So let’s get started on how to do that.

Know your speciality

We all have some special skill in us. And when you are good at something, people tend to notice and appreciate it. You have to find what you’re good at, not what you want to be at or what he/she is good at, but something that’s naturally there in you. It could be singing, cooking, gardening or anything under the sun. Just make sure it’s all natural and you display it in front of them in a subtle manner. Afterall you want to impress and not give complex.

Be yourself

Try to be the real version of you. Don’t fake to be someone you’re not just because you think he/she might like it. Be confident and let it show in your body language too. Be upfront and honest about who you are, your likes, dislikes, friends, weaknesses etc.

Watch what you’re wearing

Answer this question; would you like a guy/girl who is always wearing loose, baggy or same kind of clothes? No, ofcourse not. This doesn’t mean you have to go all the way out and dress like a rockstar all the time. Wear nice fitting, cleaned and ironed clothes and don’t stick to a certain style, keep changing it.

Smell good

We all are attracted towards good fragrances. Fragrance is an excellent way to get noticed and registered in the minds of people. Though it shouldn’t be too strong to handle or it will give you and him/her a headache too. Wear a subtle perfume. Boys should choose notes of musk, citrus or aqua and girls should go for the notes of amber, flower or fruity.

Let them know you like them

This is hard for many, especially girls. When you have that someone around you and you have all the butterflies of the world in your stomach, it’s gets easy to goof things up. On the other hand you also don’t have to throw yourself at him/her. Wear a smile and be gentle and show that you have a soft corner for him/her. Show concern and affection for him/her in a way he/she notices it and knows that you aren’t like this to everyone else.

Remember the fact that you might be able to impress someone special of your life. But before that make sure he/she is worth it and more importantly is not seeing someone else. If so, then move on and acknowledge that your Miss/Mr. Perfect is still waiting to get impressed by you or who knows he/she might already be.
