We all want to be the best version of ourselves. Many people wonder if it is possible to become a better person when we are adults … or if we have to stay ‘like this’ forever. In fact, people, just as we learn bad habits or behavior, can also unlearn them and relearn other healthier and more appropriate behaviors … you just have to want to do it. There are always ways to improve yourself and it starts with anger management.

But ‘being a better person’ can be a relative matter and with different perspectives. In this sense, you will have to answer some questions: What is the best way to be a better person? What is the easiest approach? What must you do to get it? With your own well-being and the best interests of others in mind, these are some of the most important ways to become a better person starting today.

It is normal to have anger from time to time. Experiencing it is quite normal. Uncontrolled anger can create problems in relationships and even in your own health. Everything can lead to more stress and problems, so not controlling the idea can complicate your life and prevent you from being a better person. This is why you must learn to control anger as soon as possible.

Acknowledge the anger in you

Managing anger is not always easy, but the first step in anger management is learning more about recognizing anger and knowing what to do when you feel angry in your life. Acknowledging anger is usually simple if you make an effort to notice when you feel upset and decide to handle this feeling rather than denying it or attacking others as a way to cope. 

Focus on realizing when you feel angry and why, and discover that there is a difference between feeling angry and acting on that anger. Feeling is one thing and behavior is quite another. When you take this into account, then, you can have more options for behavior at hand in the face of your anger.

Change your beliefs

Change your beliefs about why you are angry. This can work by learning more about the situation, or even reminding yourself that there may be things you don’t know yet. link text Remind yourself that maybe that person who interrupted you at your office meeting was distracted by something challenging in their own life. If a friend seems to be rude to you, ask how their day is going and find out if there is more that you don’t know that is conditioning their behavior.

Manage triggers

You can also focus on what the anger ‘triggers’ are and eliminate them as soon as possible.  For example, if you get frustrated and angry when you have to rush, work to buy more time on your schedule (even if that means saying no a little more or making less money), and try to eliminate that trigger. If a certain person makes you angry, try to limit their role in your life if it doesn’t work to talk to them first. 

Put your grudges aside

It is important not to hold a grudge because it is only residual anger that is stored within you. Don’t get up every day holding a grudge against others and try to avoid it. The recovery only hurts you. You better focus on forgiveness. Live in the present to improve your emotions and focus on the future without grudges from the past.

Practice stress relievers

You can have stress relievers like meditation on hand each day to let go of the anger within you. Concentrate on releasing yourself from everything inside you that bothers you. Put your attention in the present and it will be easier for you to avoid ruminating on negative aspects of your life that do not help you to be better. If you ruminate on something, let it be part of finding the solutions.
