How to Douse Your Anger

  • Figure out what triggers your anger.

  • Put yourself in the other person's place. Try to see his or her point of view. If you don't understand it, ask questions until you do.

  • Recognize the humor in a situation. But make sure the laugh is on you, not the other person.

  • Learn to express displeasure in constructive ways. Instead of saying, "You blew it!" try asking, "How can we fix this?"

  • Practice relaxation techniques.

  • Walk away. Come back to the situation later, after you've had a chance to cool off.
