First comes anger; this state of mind can be quite damaging
both to the person affected by anger and the people around him/her getting
exposed to the uncomfortable outbursts of this feeling. Anger can lead to many
social and communication problems, since emotions expressed by anger are often
negative ones, presenting the person expressing them as an evil or cruel
person. Thus, other people often avoid angry and bitter individuals and hardly
ever tolerate them, this leading to conflicts and more anger in the process.
Thus, it is an unwanted feature of your personality since it can because you
heart problems along with many other complications.
So, upon experiencing excessive anger accumulations, try to breathe deeply and relax, removing all epicenters of tension and anger in your body. Counting from 1 to 10 or vice-versa is known to help as well. Establish self control and force positive feelings and attitudes in yourself and your psyche. Finally, upon feeling an anger outburst about to happen, avoid other people and wait until it passes, doing stretches or some other physical exercises.
Panic and anxiety attacks are next. These too are quite common and may be rather disturbing in the long run. Introducing exercises in your life can help you cope with stress and anxiety better. Also meditation, yoga and tai-chi are also recommended relaxation techniques. Again, you need to stop and question yourself, asking whether these problems you are faced with are worth your health and well being. Of course, they are not, and you should find time to relax and reward yourself for all your triumphs, tolerating failures and accepting them as motivation. Finally, you can only benefit from having a well-balanced diet, not drinking excessively, especially when alcohol and coffee are concerned and finding ways of relaxing yourself. The latter can be achieved through doing activities you like and enjoy.
