Anger is among those powerful emotions that tend to color everything in an individuals experience — it’s like viewing the world through anything but rosy glasses. I’ve had my share of furious episodes, so I’ve seen first hand how anger may overcome you and inform every action you make. Yet discovering how destructive it may be truly hit me a few months ago.
A Good Technique
I was catching up with an acquaintance that I haven’t seen in quite awhile. She’d been experiencing a harsh time for the past year. Her frustration over her marriage and her business life had been expanding for well over a year.
As she jabbered about what was occurring in her life and why everybody in it was causing her frustration, I took heed worried that one day all this rage would harm her health. She was already suffering from an assortment of physical symptoms that I’d bet was due to her emotional tension.
We were joined by an acquaintance who shared a story about a different individual being taken advantage of by a friend who ended up on the bad end of the karma caravan. My really angry acquaintance hurried to condemn the individual in the story — who she doesn’t know — who committed the unfairness.
I was shocked by the hate in her voice, particularly considering she didn’t even know the individuals in the story. It made me so really sorry to see how the anger spilling over in my acquaintance was morphing her into somebody that I didn’t even recognize. Not only was she harming herself, but also she was harming those around her, including her three kids.
Fortunately, there are more constructive ways to deal with rage — yoga and breathing for instance. Here are a few drills to help you diffuse anger and prevent yourself from winding up overpowered by it:
Anger doesn’t have to consume you from the inside. Instead of suppress it; try working it out with these exercises. Yoga includes physical postures, meditation and breath work or pranayama. Any of these factors may be utilized for anger management.
We will center on breath work. Pranayama is a common term to describe all yoga breathing drills. Prana stands for life force and yama means to direct it. Below are two different sorts of yoga breathing exercises that have been simplified to make them simpler and more practical to accomplish. Each pranayama may help you handle anger effectively.
Attempt this simple yoga breathing exercise to help you chase away anger. Breathe in through the nose and making a “ha” sound, breathe out the mouth and stick out your tongue. Duplicate two to three times. This lets your breathing get deeper and help release physical stress in the lungs and chest. This is a version of “lion’s breath.” It will just release the anger without drama or trauma.
Restart normal breathing by breathing in and breathing out through the nose. Without being forceful, take a couple of breaths where you pause somewhat at the top of the inhale and then exhale. If you feel dizzy or faint, stop the breath work and merely return to normal breathing.
Now, attempt to do several more rounds of the pausing breath work with somewhat longer breaks between the breathing in and breathing out. Inhale for a count of four, hesitate for a count of two and exhale for a count of four. Duplicate two more times. Stop the breath work if you get dizzy or you feel you’re working beyond your lung’s capacity. If you experience any physical irritation, merely return to normal breathing.
You’ve completed breath work for day one. For the following thirty days, repeat the lion’s breath and a simple three rounds of pausing breath work. As long as you’re able to do the pausing breath work with no discomfort, persist in your routine.
Once you’ve comfortably practiced this breath work for at least a couple of days, put it to the test: the next time you sense you’re going to lose your temper, take a lion’s breath. Then, do the pausing breath work: breathe in for four, hesitate for two, breathe out for four.
Even doing this for one round will help you dislodge your anger long enough to intensify your breathing. Rehearsing this breathing exercise will help you learn to hesitate. When you’re able to pause in a confrontational situation, you’ll be more likely to be responsive, not reactive.Other Details
