How should I deal with anger?

This activity will help you symbolically release angry feelings you have been holding in. You'll need a balloon, small strips of paper, and something to write with.

On each strip of paper, write down something that made you really angry and that you haven't let go of. Next, roll each strip tightly and place it inside the balloon. Then blow air into the balloon, and as you do, focus on all the things you wrote down. After you have blown the balloon full of anger, hold the top of it closed. Take some deep breaths, say good-bye to everything the balloon is holding inside, and let it go. Watch as your worries sail across the room and are forever released.

The stress of living with chronic anger can affect your health. Embrace your anger by journaling it out of you or sharing your feelings with a friend or counselor.
