Try smiling when you are in angry situation?

April 6, 2010 10:19pm CST
I already try this when I am in angry situation and I just try to smile a moment and the feeling inside me has changed a lot...and then the anger just gone for a moment. If I scale my anger at point 8 (1-10, 10 is the most anger), after I smile the scale went down to 4 and when I do a smile again it was gone forever...so did you try smiling when you get anger?

Life is a play where we have to enact so many roles. But the role you are telling is a difficult one I feel. Getting angry makes one ferocious and a smile during this period is something unique - which I would like to apply. But wonder if we smile the person on whom we are angry may feel that we are insulting him and he ma also slap us is my afraid.

just try it not in front of the person...if we do that you will have another strange feeling...yes you get down the anger but you will also get other than that...

That is a very hard thing to do. I think I could never smile when I am angry. Its like having a mixed emotions and for me I think I cant contain two things at the same time. I think I can never do something like that. I think it would be funny cause I wont be honest with my emotions.

Funny thing is that the first time I try this is when I was angry and just trying to smile, but the truth is that funny feeling is happen inside my heart when I was trying this...but then the emotions just flow away and the anger went down...and at the end I just laugh... Some how I feel that you must try once...and then tell me what your feel after that... emotion is same thing as energy in motion...just let it flows and try to enjoy the anger by smiling for your self... :)

I am not a very angry persona and I get angry very rarely. When I get angry I usually try not to talk to others. So, I am not a dangerous angry person. It is a good advice to smile when a person is angry, but that won't always work in practical situations. It is easy for a person to decide to do this, but there is a good chance for the person to forget it whenever he gets angry.

I usually do like you when I get angry, I am trying not to talk to others and sometimes try to forget it. But at the end I found that this only a temporary solution for me. Why? because when I remember again about the way I get angry then it goes again. I just running away from my anger/problem..and after I am knowing about what emotion is then I try to smile... E-motion = energy in motion just let it flow.. Angry = negative feeling the opposite is: Happy = positive feeling Happy can be represented by smile.. but every one has it choice on what ever you decide about what to do next.. Happy smiling :)

Hi widodo2010. Interesting. Sometimes all you can do is smile or grin and bare it. Though sometimes when I am angry about something I want someone to know about it. I might give it a try next time I feel like turning into the Hulk but I doubt if it will help

I do it a lot of time actually. It helps me feel good somehow just to forget why im angry. I feel ugly when i dont smile, i feel old then. For me smiling keeps all the anger away. I dont want to get wrinkles if i keep worrying what made me angry. Fro me smiling is the best thing i can do at the end of the day. :)

Hi widodo2010 I have hearded about that, I think that's very good method to stop being angry. Actually I have tried to smile when I got angry, but it's really hard to do, u know when I really got angry with something, I really can't make smile face. Anyway, I know this is good method to stop being angry, even if I think it's hard to do, but I will keep trying. Have a nice day!

Hi wi! It is not a bad idea to smile, if one is angry. We require less facial mussels to smile than to get angry. Smile probably cools down our temper and allow us to be under control. I sometimes try this formula and succeed in bringing down my anger.

I've tried it before.. and it worked for a bit.. but after that my anger started to rise once more. And then I try my very best to concentrate on the task at hand.. and not think about my anger..

Yeah, I've done that a couple of times before especially when I'm angry with someone in front of me. I think it's a pretty good way to control your anger, but usually, I cry when I'm angry just to let it all out.

I have tried this...smiling in an angry situation. But not when I am angry :P when my mom is angry. The face she makes when she is angry, I cannot control my laughter. I am bound to get thrashed one day for this from her :)

smiling and laughing are good way to deal with the anger :) the understanding of the reasons why all this is happening also helps a lot

I have tried this a few times already. It started when I was really frustrated with an officemate and just when I was really at the end of my rope, I remembered something funny that happened a few hours and I just started smiling and even giggling. I was shaking my head thinking that I look stupid buy hey it feels much better... :)

I am a very Happy go Lucky person and i believe that a smile can save you from serious problems. Whenever I am intensely angry with someone I try to laugh the matter off so that it doesn't affect me. Often smiling helps you to forget the degree of anger on the person and you tend to make the situation lighter in that process. Often the person you are angry with will also feel less agitated if you give a smile.. Nice way to keep your Blood Pressure down.. Just Smile when You are angry.. I tried and it worked for me.
