We all know what anger is, and we’ve all experienced it: whether as a fleeting annoyance, or as a full-fledged rage. Anger is a very normal, and healthy, human emotion. But, when anger gets out of control and becomes destructive, it can lead to problems in your day-to-day life, including work and personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. It has many physical effects as well, such as high heart rate, high blood pressure, heavy breathing (or irregular breathing), shortness of breath, adrenaline spikes and blacking out, are just some examples. Anger is a powerful emotion and can make you feel at its mercy if you don’t understand and know how to navigate it.

Luckily, for those who struggle with managing their anger, there are many methods that can be applied for short- and long-term results. Anger management is a psycho-therapeutic program for anger prevention and control. In most cases when these methods are applied, people have noticed successful anger deployment, and not only experience a sense of control over their emotions, but they also see improvements in their relationships (co-workers, family, friends).

The goal of anger management is to reduce both your emotions, and the psychological arousal that anger causes. You cannot get rid of, or avoid, the things or people that enrage you, nor can you change them, but you can learn to control how you react. There are many ways to control your anger in the short term, and in the long term. Understanding both short and long, term methods are crucial to having healthy and consistent behaviors.


Some of the short term (day to day) methods to help manage anger are things like exercise, relaxation (take 10 minutes), allowing yourself time to think, breathing slow and deep calming breathes, and meditation are just some methods I have been taught. These methods become easier, and more second nature, the more they are applied. Over time your brain becomes re-educated because of the consistency of applying these methods.


The short-term methods are essential to managing your anger. But, when that isn’t enough, other long-term methods are also needed. Seeing a counselor, psychologist, or a mental health worker to address unmanageable anger, is very common. Most people (75%) that receive these therapies improved as a result. These methods consist of psychotherapy, meditation, identifying triggers, and in some situations, medication, but must also consist of the short-term methods previously mentioned.

If you or someone you know is experiencing out of control anger, contact Can-Am Interventions, or a mental health professional to begin a treatment best suited for you.
