These are practical tips that i myself use to control anger. Firstly, Avoid the situation. If such situation arises, and u r too angry to think logically, just move away from that situation. Its better than initiation of fight, as anger is always followed by anger from opposite site. At times u may b called coward, but its better than anger which damages u r health. After going away, just think of something relaxing like music or anything that suits u, i personally play a game on my cellphone. Than when u r relaxed, go back to situation and think logically and do the needful. To avoid anger being crept up in mind, don't keep too many things in mind. If u have a little prob with somebody, tell it. in long run that little prob becomes huge enough to make u loose ur temper.

Perhaps once you are angry you need to remove yourself from the situation until you calm down. Go for a walk or do something to burn off that energy, then once you've calmed down you can think logically about whatever it was that made you upset in the first place.
