well, i think the best way to handle it is to try to communicate with the person or the cause with which u r angry with. mostly, anger is out of a reason that can well be solved by talking ,speaking out ur true feelings, n communication with the person concerned. all we need to do is to be honest, n sincere in admitting n communication to that person or reason. once that sorts out, there would be no need to be angry :)

I can be into a rage of anger sometimes. Best of all is than just leave my all by myself, I will calm down sooner or later. Just ignore it. The storm will go away. And if there is no possibility of ignoring the anger, laugh about it. Make the other person see the laughing part of it. Maybe that will help.

just a thought... laughing it off? won't that entice the other party to be surprised or the incident to be more heated?

I close my eyes, count down from 100 to 1 in the reverse order, take some slow deep breaths and thats it, my anger is gone. This has proven to be very effective for me, many of the times, when I was very much stressed by the official works, or some problems at the home or at the public etc. Infact, these actions are some named Yoga, which I dont know at all. I have plans to learn yoga very soon.

counting back in reverse sure takes up your concentration and avoid thinking about the incident before. thanks for the tip.

I see to it that I Don't lose control if I get angry. Taking it out on others never solves anything. Instead, admit to yourself that you are angry and try to figure out why. Never getting angry is impossible. Instead, remember that how you act when you're angry can make the situation better or worse. Don't let anger control you. Take charge of it! There are different ways people feel anger. Usually your body will tell you when you are angry. Are you breathing faster? Is your face bright red? Are your muscles tense and your fists clenched tight? Do you want to break something or hit someone? Anger can make you yell or scream at those around you, even people you like or love. Some people keep their anger buried deep inside. If you do this, you might get a headache or your stomach might start to hurt. You may just feel crummy about yourself or start to cry. It's not good to hide your anger, so you should find a way to let it out without hurting yourself or others.
