Haah, the interiors’ work at home is still going on and on and on…

And all of us are eagerly waiting for it to get over.

I am standing at a  point where I can see that I am very frustrated and tend to lose temper very easily. From the past few weeks, I have been noticing that I get angry, even on some very silly issues.

Trust me I was never that kind of person. I used to be very calm and patient. And how this anger thing has taken over me is something that even I don’t know.

But yes, I  am trying hard to get rid of this evil from within me.

Anger is something very normal, though it is not a very healthy human emotion.

But when it gets out of control, is where all the problems start.

Just as every other thing is good when within limits, anger too is manageable if it stays within a limit.

But that does not mean that you should start getting angry under the safe cover of “being within limits”.

It is always good to avoid anger.

Anger not only affects relationships, it also has a very bad impact on your health as well. The physical effect of anger includes increased anxiety, high blood pressure, and headache.

So try to prevent anger from dominating you. It is neither good for us nor for anybody else.

A good way of getting over anger is to practice yoga or, do some exercises. But if you ask me, how do I get over my anger most of the time, I would say “I talk”…

Yesss…You heard that right. It is always better explaining your anger than expressing it. But do it with somebody who can take all of it, someone who can understand you and is ready to listen to you.

Some wise man somewhere said, “Speak when you are angry – and you will make the best speech you will ever regret.” That is true and it is always advisable not to speak when you are angry because you might just regret your speech a little while later.

I know that my point above contradicts that quote. But there is a slight difference to what I meant.

If you can explain the cause of your anger to someone, it is one of the easiest ways to get rid of anger. And this is very different from “speaking when you are angry“, which is what could destroy relationships.

Crying is another best thing you can do when you are angry, it relaxes your mind and your anger rolls over through your tears. And I do that as well at times.

My rant on anger management can go on for hours, as though I am an expert in anger management. But that is not the case.

So instead of carrying on with my rant, I think we should start with our recipe for today.
