Reframing would help you alot in this area. Reframing is associating your anger with something more positive so that you can change your perception. You need to identify what would you need to improve your mood and anchor it whenever anger strikes you.
Try to channel your anger into other alternative, for example, listening to loud music, taking a nap, shouting into a pillow, drawing or anything that can distracts you.
It is really hard to avoid taking anger in others. Our brains do it without us noticing, we have to blame someone and that someone is not gonna be us! so that is actually really hard to do
As mentioned before. I do it by killing my ego for the people I love, and don't get offended from what they say no matter what. End the conversation there itself when i feel that i may offend them rather than saying things that might hurt them. Talk about that matter when i'm in my senses.

If you know you're getting ready to be angry, try removing yourself from people. If you know you're going to slip up and say something that might be taken as rude, try and remove yourself from the conversation.
Get a stress ball or scream in a pillow, or you can listen to music that calms you down and distracts.

Isolate myself. When possible get out around nature.
Take a deep breadth. Count up to 10. Repeat it until you are completely relaxed. People often tend to tease you if they know that you are vulnerable. Do not let that happen. Show them that you can handle their worst! If you vent out your anger on someone, they might think of you as an unapproachable person and that might harm your relationships. Just tell them that you are not in a mood to talk it they approach you. Otherwise, just take 5 mins to get over the situation and resume your work.
Do not forget that other people have feeling either. If you're feeling that you're getting mad i suggest (from my experience) to try to understand that you're mad. Once you know why, if it concerns someone i would say try to talk to them nicely and calm. But before talking to the person, you should try to take some minute off your phone. Try to do some yoga, take a shower, go for a walk, listen to nice music or Watch Something on tv could help your mind to calm a bit. Never talk to someone when youre mad, if you want you can try to talk to them, they are for you they are your friends.
