Release Tension in a Healthy Way
Overreacting to anger doesn't help anyone. Not the driver you're swearing at. Not your friends or family who are watching you lose control. Least of all, you. While you may think that lashing out or hitting a pillow or punching bag helps you release tension, it doesn't. It teaches you unhealthy behavior patterns that actually escalate tension. That said, we don't want you to hold on to your anger until it eats away at you. So instead, use this plan to get your hotheadedness under control.
