For many of us managing our temper is a very easy thing to accomplish. However, there are some people and some situations that just make you want to go nuts. When you find yourself in these situations you want to do your best to hold your anger. The last thing you want to have happen is deal with court ordered anger management classes.
Take a deep breath
The first thing that you will want to do is take a deep breath. When we take the time to take a deep breath, we can refocus our energy and our anger towards something else. It also allows us a chance to step away from the situation without acting out.
Find a mantra
When we have someone getting on our nerves or trying to get a rise out of us, you really want to find a way to direct your mind and your attention away from it. One of the best ways to do this is to have a mantra. A mantra is a saying that you can repeat over and over again. When we do this we are removing the annoyance of others around us and really focusing and centering our minds in a more positive direction.
It might sound easier than it is in some situation, however if you want to avoid confrontation simply walk away. When we walk away, we are removing ourselves from the situation and doing everything we can to avoid conflict.
Smile and kill them with kindness. One of the best ways to avoid a confrontation is to smile and kill people with kindness. For most people looking to start something they are looking for you to engage them in a confrontation. To avoid this and to make them angry, you just need to smile and kill them with kindness. When we do this people will eventually stay away from you with confrontation since they know they can’t get you mad.
