Remember the definition of Anger states that it is a set of emotions triggered when we "perceive" something offensive of what other person said or did

The thing is it stem's from our perception of the situation

Not everything in this world is simply binary, not everything is simply "YES" or "No" or "Right" or "Wrong"

For instance in Asian region, not taking your shoes off to the dining is considered rude while in many Western restaurants taking your shoes off is considered rude

Likewise for some people having alcohol is great while for some alcohol is something you should never have, it is always about opinions and in some way or the other both of them are right

In a similar manner, the thing that you perceived as offensive may not really be intended to offend you

So access the situation from the other person's point of view to get a better view at the situation

7.  Do it the Federer Way: Watch the Angry You

Roger Federer was a very angry young gentleman who used to smash his racket when suffering a defeat and this step is a lesson right from his Life

He watched video clips of himself thrashing a racket to realize how un-called for and bad that actually looks and from then onwards he worked on to never repeat it again

That is very powerful lesson, at times we don't realize how bad an atmosphere we end up creating when angry

If anger is something that drives you crazy very often, then ask a friend to make a video of the things you do when angry

Watch it when your anger has gone, and you will be realizing how un-called for the reaction was

Take lessons from it time to time and try improving yourself bit by bit by implementing the strategies mentioned here

Over time you will be happy and calm

8.  Use Music to Calm you down

Music is something that resonates with every mood of ours, be it happy, sad, passionate or angry

Try tuning into a soothing and calming music to calm yourself down when faced with a situation that drives you crazy

A good background music will not just simulate happy vibes to the mind but will also direct you away from the thought that may provoke you

You can make a playlist of soothing music to listen to, whenever you feel angry or provoked

9.  Express your Point when you are Calm

Once you have calmed yourself down, express your point of view and offer solutions and suggestions on how to improve the situation

Use "I" statements, instead of "You" statements, to address your point of view

For instance it is much more courteous to say "I am upset you left the table without offering help in doing the dishes" rather than "You never help with house-chores"

Be absolutely respectful and courteous while expressing your point of view to have a deeper impact

Avoid playing blame games as it would be un-necessarily fueling up the matter, say it in a better way as highlighted above

10.  Practice being Grateful

Be grateful for all the things you have in Life, instead of stressing over petty issues, this Life is too short to waste stressing over irrelevant issues

Being grateful will help you calm your inner self and will keep you from getting angry over petty issues

It will neutralize the stress hormones and will help you achieve inner calmness
