This gets them into problems that can be avoided by having some self control. There several things a person can practice to manage anger.
Controlled breathing is one of the most effective ways to manage anger. When a person gets angry, the best way for him to overcome this, is to practice breathing exercises that have a calming and relaxing effect to the mind and body. Theses exercises are not complicated, but just simple breathe in and out activity. This is done for some few minutes or even seconds, to feel the relieving effect. The breathing exercise helps your mind to divert from focusing on anger and gradually you start to forget negative feelings bothering you.
