Anger issues Heres how you can cope

Some time ago, I realised that I was constantly angry with myself, at my daughter and everyone else around me, and I used to get irritated and frustrated at the small provocation. I was doing everything I was supposed to, but was working like automation —but I realised that it was time I did something about it.

And what I did was make some simple changes to the way I think, along with some meditating techniques, and now manage my anger and live in peace. Here’s what to do:

1. Stay in the moment: Whatever you’re doing – eating, cooking, playing with your child—just be in that moment. For that minute forget about laundry, dishes or anything else your mind wanders on to.

2. Meditate: Meditation is the best way to fight inner restlessness and stress that aggravates into anger, irritation and frustration. So, take a deep breath and release it slowly. If you feel there’s a situation that’s beyond your control, move away and go on to the next step.

3. Let go: Sometimes it’s better to let go of certain things and relax. Your daughter spilled milk on the floor? Relax, take a step back and think – will your getting angry on the child rectify the situation? No—so then why scold the child?

4. Count to 10: Instead of lashing out, if you feel terribly angry, simply count to 10, while taking long, deep breaths between each number. It’s an effective, proven technique of calming people down.

it's true. our anger will frighten the child. better stop shouting and think a moment. if they understand our language say them not to do it again. it increases the understanding nature in the child.

I always think that mera beta humesha perfect ho,i know this is not possible lakin agar vo kuch wrong karta hai mujhe ekdum sai gussa aa jata hai. isi vajah sai vo mujhse door rahna laga hai.
