One of my friend's has a terrible problem managing his anger. Most of the times when he gets angry he starts throwing things and sometimes hurts himself and others. Maybe it's frustration and anger. He has tried many times to control it but it never works for him. Are there any practical solutions for this? Maybe some meditation or yoga or some music etc?

I Think the best for him is meditation because it is what has helped me a lot during the past three years and even today. I have been doing meditation and it really helps though, it controls your anger, your lust, your attachment and helps you to keep a balance between the materialistic and the spiritual life.

remind him to stop and take a breath. It's amazing how something so simple can make the difference between going nuts, or keeping your cool. Also if he splashes himself in the face with cold water it helps.

maybe you should bring him to see a professional to deal with it.... it's hard to control one's anger and different methods work for different people....
