‘Every time you get angry, you poison your own system.’ – Alfred A. Montapert
Be it professional or personal life, if anger is not controlled at the right time, it can lead to things for which you might regret all your life!
In the professional world, getting angry only means losing out on your business, people, your peers and even clients, which can prove to be hazardous to your career as well.
So whenever angry follow these 10 simple steps:
1) Take a deep breath and count till 50: Do not speak when you are too angry instead take a deep breath and count till 50. This is one of the most common techniques.
2) Drink Water: This helps to calm down your systems internally.
3) Think of the person who makes you smile: This helps to divert your mind and brings in positive energy.
4) Listen to music: As they say, ‘Music is the best therapy’. Just put on your earphones and unwind.
5) Talk to yourself: If you feel the above steps aren’t working then talking to yourself could be the thing for you. It works most of the time and helps vent out the anger inside you.
6) Read: Be it newspaper, magazine, articles available online, just anything. This is to shift your focus and keeping your mid engaged in something else.
7) Make an anthem: This might sound crazy but it works most of the time. Find out with which song you can identify yourself and something which helps you cheer up. This is totally up to you.
