Take a time-out to control your anger

Anger is a normal human emotion. But sometimes it

can boil over at inopportune or inappropriate moments.

If angry outbursts occur on a regular basis, that may be a

sign of an anger-management problem.

Angry outbursts can negatively affect relationships with

family, friends, co-workers and even complete strangers. If

you find yourself fuming over the smallest thing, it might be

a good idea to practice some calming measures to get your

caused you stress and anger. You can never expect every-

work wonders in defusing anger. But avoid sarcasm, as

it's nothing more than another form of unhealthy expression.

--Maintain an anger journal to identify situations that

set you off and monitor your reactions.

--Finally, if your anger seems on the brink of becoming

a violent episode, seek counseling from a psy-

chotherapist or an anger management professional
