Understanding uncontrollable anger is not an easy thing to do. Here are some simple tips to control your anger.

The human race has been around millions of years. Most people do well in a controlled environment, while others do not. Everything about a human being involves action. For instance, our muscles produce action. The actions produced by humans also produce responses. For instance, if you muscle contracts and releases, you may jump, or twitch. All our actions and responses reflect on our emotional states and our cognitive states.

In addition, the ways we interact with others reflect on our cognitive and emotional responses. Our cognitive mind interrupts things it observes in many ways. What it leads to is our way of relating and understanding what we learn. How we perceive what the cognitive mind reads determines our outcome with the decisions we make. For instance, if you see the world as a bad place to live, thus you have developed a negative attitude, which will reflect on your actions and responses. If you see the world as a positive environment, however, likely you will make better decisions that encourage positive responses and actions.

Are we using all powers that come naturally to our best advantage? Unfortunately, there is a big gap between what is possible according to the Laws of Nature and what is possible according to our minds. In order to lead a better life, we must bridge this gap. We have the natural capabilities to survive and we should not let our pessimistic thoughts and attitude affect our natural survival capabilities.

What prevents us from using our natural skills that have evolved over millions of years?

We must be willing consciously work towards negating its effect on us.

Our main goal of recovering from anger is to learn how to face our problems with dignity and a reasonable sense of perspective. Amazingly, once we begin to do that, much of our distress lessens. We become better equipped to cope with our families, jobs, frustrations, and disappointments.

We should also learn to understand our anger. What sets it off, and how to live with it? It is important for us to know that anger is not some unpredictable and unknowable beast hunkering down inside us, waiting for our defense to break so that it can lunge out to capture our hearts and mind. It is a normal human emotion, which we should keep in control.

After understanding the causes of anger, we can take steps to reduce it. Physical exercise will reduce anger largely.
