I know how overwhelming it can feel when you're having a tough time. I offer clients a space that is non-judgemental and empathetic whilst navigating these times together.

Being mad or angry all the time is easy and the norm for a lot of people. There is so much in this world to be angry at; bad drivers, politics, your children being slow to get going in the morning, being late and much more. I grew up with a mother who hates everything and everyone it seems. So as an adult it became a challenge for me to stop that cycle but somehow I managed. I realized that when I wake up in the morning I have a choice to be angry or happy, I choose happy. When my daughter is having a meltdown before school, I choose to let that frustration leave with her as she leaves for school. When something happens throughout the day, I know it was a moment in time and not a whole day, so I let those feelings go. My new motto in life is: Was it really a bad day or was it a moment you turned into a bad day?
Count from 1 to 10 each time you get mad. Wear a rubber band on your waist and pull it each time you get angry on others.
Train urself to identify what triggers you outbursts. Usually itd be rounded off to a handfew. Once uve got them noted, work on reasoning how u react to scenarios related to it and that consequences of your outburst to you and those around you. Practise being happy. Singing. Loosening up, yoga, redirect anger energy to sports. Sports might be a good way to release that extra energy. And ud made even more friends and social contacts too. Good day. :-)
First, take a deep breath. Think about why you were mad. Most of he time you would realize it wasn't a big thing to be mad about.
Start doing the thing which you like the most, or just grab a dark chocolate and put ear phones on.
Look at things that make you happy. That bring you joy. Realize this is what I live for. And that angry isn't okay.
Try to think hard about why you feel such anger, the root of the problem, and then work on reducing it. When you figure out the reason or reasons, you will have to process it and probably talk to someone so you're not alone with the issue.
You have to stop your thinking angry. Everything we do starts as a thought. So think happy thoughts.
Us being mad is our body telling us something. If you want to stop being mad all the time, then it's best to do some introspection and look inside of you to see how you really feel, maybe do some journaling.

when you feel like this..just close your eyes..havea deep breath and drink some water. it will surely help :)
If you feel you're angry all the time, try doing some breathing exercises! Maybe take your anger out with art or music or physical activity. :)
you waste energy when you are angry and it's just not worth it. don't keep it bottled up inside though, find a way to use that anger like through writing or photography.
Focus yourself on doing something you enjoy- even though it may be small. Read a book. Go for a walk. Eat an extra slice of cake. Completely indulge yourself on something just for you. You will enjoy doing something that will benefit you and only you.
Start analysing why you feel this way, allow yourself breathing space, and then try to deal with the root of the problem.
I close my eyes. Calm down by breathing in and out several times, or I leave that particular area preferably a place with fresh air.
