well for me I go on long walks, I like it when it rains because it lets me sit there and listen to it, if its laud inside I go on a walk in the rain its a stress releaver I think its easier to let yourself scream and let yourself say everything outside when no one is around it calms me down and I break down a lot because of issues in my life. Trust me it'll be fine.
Idk if this would help but whenever I'm upset I go for runs...It's basically proven to help bc your brain releases endorphins to make you happy resulting in a runners' high. Combine this with some pumped music and I always feel a lot better when done! :)
The best way for me is to stop for a few seconds and acknowledge that I'm angry (or stressed). Say out loud, if you can, "I refuse to be angry about this." Then distract yourself, do something that makes you happy.
"Healing through service to others." When my life is out of balance I feel the affects. Physical activity only masks/distracts me. I take the focus off myself and change my world for the better. Ask any teacher, nurse, doctor, preacher, Mother. Distraction=Depression. Consider visiting a psych. if you feel you are in a chronic situation. You deserve to live in peace. Few of us are raised with coping skills. Surround yourself with kind people. Maybe gamingman48 is spending too much time gaming. Find something/someone to love, share yourself with others, find the beauty in your soul.
Well, what I do is, first regarding anger, hun, is figure out if the problem is worth really getting upset about. Because in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter. If it's a minor thing, and it canbef ixed, then just fix it, hun and be done with it! :) Regarding stress: Get out of the house, even go to the library, read, do something to calm down inside ( even sleep) and you'll be fine! Your BP isn't worth getting up. Remember the philosophy I apply in life: Nobody and nothing in this life time is worth making yourself THAT sick over!

Two points. 1. Anger comes involuntarily not by choice. Avoid imagining mental confrontation with the person you hate. Go to Alfa state and condition your thoughts with peace. 2. The root trigger to arouse anger is that some thing is happening that is not what you would like to happen. Understand that the world is for all with all the differences. it is not made for one of us. Reduce your expectations from the world. Each behaves the way that he/she believes appropriate. Learn to be content with taking care of your responsibilities. Co operate with others as much as you can, as much as needed.
With anger, I say stay away from the "reason" that angers you. Then find an outlet elsewhere. For guys, taking some strenuous exercise like boxing, ice hockey, baseball and so on. Make sure you sweat like a pig. After that, take yourself to a comfortable hot bath. I'm sure you will feel refreshed. All the unpleasant memories are water under bridge then. Never stay alone and lick the wound yourself. You've gotten to be let it out somewhere. Suppressing yourself can only turn out worse. With stress, I suggest a vacation. Travelling to a different place, seeing different scenery and meeting different kind people is much better than spending bunches of $ on therapy. You will not even know this cheerful guy in the mirror after returned from a trip. There is also another way around. Go to the karaoke! Roaring,or howling or growling or whatever, make your noise in whatever way you like. BTW, make sure those who go karaoke with you are your true friends in case they might hit you because of what you've done to their ears! :) Have a nice day:)
Well, I take Rx drugs, but another thing that really helps is listening to LOUD music in the car. I'm talking LOUD!!! Helps a lot on the way to work if you can growl out a song or two. I suggest 'DISTURBED' ( well. we are anyway, right?) Or- whatever you like, just LOUD!!! BUT- in all seriousness, if the anger is a big problem, see a proffessional! I know a lot of people think that therapy or meds. are for P***ys, but people don't sweep this kind of thing under the rug anymore. Sometimes "Manning UP" can cause more probs. I'm a woman, so I guess I'm expected to wuss out, but I have major issues, I take my meds. & anyone who has something bad to say can kiss my big, pink, A** !! Take care!!! catlady

Take a look at your Life, recognize what's good, realise that @#$&% happens beyond your control, wake up everyday being grateful that you are one of the fortunate few that can take a breath today. And food. And money. And a roof over your head. Shoes on your feet...seriously, what pisses you off so much?. Because of a condition I was born with, I've medically died 3 times...wanna change places? Grow up.
I usually watch a movie ! any genre, it helps get your mind of the situation and you get distracted! and it also gives you a excuse to sit back and relax and not worry about a thing! try to watch more of an exciting movie, (action,horror,comedy) then watching something less exciting. it makes you more interested and on the edge of your seat haha. or, even besides movies, if it's a situation that you can try to fix, try fixing it! at least if you succeed, it won't bring stress and anger right? and if you don't succeed, well, theres some advantages and dis advantages to that, advantages: it can make you feel proud, it can fix everything, you'll be happy and not mad. dis advantages: it may not work, you could become more angry and stressed. but don't let those dis advantages bring you down from trying!
Anger & Stress: I would get a stress ball, maybe watch a movie or just think about things you love, go into your happy place. Lol, have tea or coffee, sing or dance or do something that makes you happy! Listen to Music, Laugh and tell yourself your perfect the way you are!! Watch a funny video. Anger: Punch a pillow or scream into it. Go for a walk or jog. Stress: Cry, Yell, Talk to someone. I really hoped I helped!! Good Luck!!!!!!!

write it down, write a poem a story listen to music that will make you happy, it works with some some it makes them more upset, four square breathing breathing for four hold for for breath out for four and hold for four and so on
If I'm angry I take one of my bigger stuffed animals, take a minute to convince myself it's the person or other source of my anger, and then I beat the S*** out of it. If I'm sad, I take a bigger stuffed animal or my cat and cry into it, all the while squeezing the living daylight out of it as well. Then I eat (this applys to all emotions), preferably something with cheese. Or chocolate.

They are called Morning Pages. You are supposed to sit down & write three pages of whatever you want in the morning:before your day starts and the ups & downs come at you. Sometimes it is very hard to fill three whole pages but do your best. So cleansing to get all that out and look at it at an arm's distance. You can solve a lot of problems, yell at people on the paper instead of in real life, lots of things get handled and calmed down. Very addictive
Let's see. I have extreme anger and stress issues, and they get pretty depressing for me. But listen, if it's a specific someone making you feel that way, then you should feel sorry for them, they have to make fun of you compared to actually having a life. But if it's someone you like that rejects you, then remember, it might be their loss, and they might also be having some stress thinking about what they just did, I rejected a guy once, and I felt awful for him, and like I was a jerk, but then again, he asked me out of Instagram, and that can be a bit cowardly. Anyway, it depends on what is giving you this stress, and how much you have of it. If you think that it's overwhelming, and out of control, I actually think a therapist is a great way to go to get rid of these issues. If not so much stress, then I think you should look on the positive of things, and work off of that, if you don't think there is a bright side, dude, get a therapist. I really hope this works for you! Good luck!
When stressed go for a walk it doesn't have to be long but I try walk everyday and its my relaxation time. Also breath in then hold for four seconds then breath out repeat that eight times. And for anger think about the consequences don't know what you are when it comes to religion but when I'm stressed I will pray.
I deal with anger and stress by trying to remember what is important in life. I try to follow Bible principles like " do not be anxious". I also try to remember that I am only human so there is only so much that is humanly possible to accomplish in a 24 hour period. Being realistic about expectations in life and what I expect from myself helps with both stress and anger. Also it is good try to be organized so that daily life is not busier than it has to be.Also trying to remember to apply Matthew 6:33 and making sure my focus is on spiritual things helps with stress. As far as anger, anger does not help anything , it does not make anyone react the way you want them to so it is counterproductive. its easier said than done but it is worth a try.
If you're angry, it's for only a couple of reasons: Your feelings are hurt. or. You're frustrated because you're not getting something you want.
If it's hurt feelings, you're angry because you felt you were wronged. Say your Dad is beating you up. You're angry because you're saying he should love you, not hurt you. You want him to change and be something he isn't. That is not going to happen. Diffuse all the anger by being willing to accept that that things are not what you want them to be. Stay out of reach. Live somewhere else, even though that would be inconvenient. You don't like those choices, but they are the only choices you've got. Being mature means we make the tough choices that overall make our lives safer, saner and healthier, even though it does not feel good at the time.
