  Health Tip: Controlling Anger
Dwell on solutions, not problems

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Thoughts can quickly spiral downward when something doesn't go your way. But experts say if you learn how to change your way of thinking, you can keep anger in check.

The American Psychological Association offers these suggestions:

  • Don't use words such as "always" or "never" when discussing problems involving yourself or others.
  • Focus on goals and how to achieve them, rather than dwelling on problems themselves.
  • Understand that anger can make you behave irrationally, so step back and make sure you're reacting in a logical way.
  • Don't issue demands. Instead, make requests of things you want.
