9 Tactics to Tame your Anger

“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned”. ~ Buddha

Learning to recognize and tame your anger can improve the quality of your relationships as well as your general mood & happiness. Taming your anger can also has significant health benefits. […]

Sometimes, we walk around in our lives full of anger, ready to pounce on unsuspecting victims if they get in our way or say the wrong thing.
