Seriously they needed to do a study on this? But I digress, what I really mean to ask is how do you handle your temper? I usually just slam and bang things as hard as I can and then perhaps go for a brisk walk. What are some of your methods?



Rob Waugh



TextRight handers should get into the habit of using a computer mouse, stirring a cup of coffee or opening a door with their left hand - and left-handers should do the opposite.

Just two weeks of the exercises reduce the tendency to act on impulse. In studies he showed people who try to use their non-dominant hand for two weeks keep a lid on their aggression better. So if they are right handed, they are told to use their left hand ‘for pretty much anything that is safe to do,’ he said.

I identify the cause, and then remove it from my life.

Anger is a form of response to a stimulus, like anything else. Stop exposing yourself to the stimulus, and you'll stop experiencing the response.

I will never be part of the mainstream workforce, ever; and I do not care if I starve as a result of that. I've had maybe two jobs in 20 years, other than some freelance Web design work; and that was because I knew when I left school, that if I ever got a job, I could not be trusted to refrain from literally killing a psychopathic or abusive employer.

I have identified which family members tend to be a persistent problem, and although I have not disowned the immediate family completely, my exposure to them is limited, and completely on my own terms. I don't do weddings, funerals, Christmas, or any other large scale gathering, but I have no problem with seeing them in groups of four or less.

I am not vegan, but I do not eat meat excessively, and ideally I also keep my salt intake down. I do not eat either monosodium glutamate, or artificial sweeteners, as I know that both of those things are neurological excitotoxins. I have smoked marijuana occasionally, (generally no more than once per fortnight) but I do not smoke tobacco. I generally do not consume alcohol, although do occasionally.

I do not masturbate excessively, and I have not had sex in five years. I have noticed a marked correlation between retention of semen, and lack of physical aggression. Although I am not doing so regularly at the moment, I have meditated in the past.

I am not an atheist. I believe in Kali Ma, and call on the aid of both her and the cardinal archangels at times. Although I do not do it often enough most of the time, I have learned how to regulate and purify my energy when I need to. When I do still get angry, I can usually talk myself down from doing anything too serious.

I'd end up putting my fist through a wall waiting for the water to boil, my mouse is right handed only, and uhh I don't wanna make a meal every time I get pissed so I can shovel food down with my left hand, etc. It's funny though: "Forget Meditation" ... Such horrible advice.


Good to know though. TY. I'll have to try this one day.

I go to a range and set up targets that are hard to hit. Maybe it's a form of meditation as it forces me to concentrate on my shot.

Then again, I use to play Halo in a easy mode and reak havoc. Just for grins and giggles.

Most times I try try to put myself in a persons shoes and see the futility of losing your temper.

It doesn't always work.


Then again, I took a month off of ATS while I stopped smoking. It worked wonders.

I used to yell & yell & yell at the cause of my anger (like my main man Ramsey), but now that I'm older and in my heart attack years, I just breathe & immediately remove or fix the cause in whatever way need be. Yes, it took many a long time long time to train myself to go from that to that, not easy.

Me + Xanax = No more temper. If I do get pissed, either take more Xanax or find a different pill because my body does not handle being stressed/pissed.
Sex also works - but that requires me to find someone I do not find morally repulsive.

Am I the only person who just takes the time to breathe deeply?
Mind you, when breathing doesn't work, giving something a good kick is always nice

I'm quite lucky in that i rarely lose my temper. I get narked by people now and again, but i usualy just let it go and don't let it phase me.

I do find that playing my guitar or banjo helps me relax during particularly stressfull times though.
