Some really quick steps to control your anger

Step 1: Move out of the place: What we would suggest is that move out of the premises that you are in. Go somewhere out, if you are inside, and take a few deep breaths. This will help you calm down in a very short period of time.
Step 2: Sip some water: When you get angry your heart rate tends to increase and that’s not good for your health. Plus, this also doesn’t let you think straight. Sipping some water really helps you cool down a little and help your heart to relax.
Step 3: Counting can help: You must have seen in many movies that to control anger people choose to count from 1 to 10. The logic behind this basically is to create distraction. While you put your head and heart totally into counting numbers the ore you get distracted from the argument that was taking place.
