Short Temper/Anger
Hello Doctor, the problem with me is I get angry very easily and will not accept what others say if they don't listen to what I say.Sometimes even I feel sorry for what I have done. Nowadays when ever I am frustrated I try to keep calm and don't speak much and feel a bit better now because I am not hurting the opposite person.Can you suggest anything for me so that anger management can be done in my case.No medicines please for now as I want to follow some home remedy kind of treatments or something like what I am doing by keeping quiet.

Some people are more easily angered just as just people get more anxious in particular situations. The brain reacts faster than we can rationalise and so BOOM we blow a fuse. To change this, it takes time. CBT helps. Just as if you start learning painting, you go for regular classes so in CBT you go regularly. Second meditation e.g. mindfulness is helpful. Start with 5 minutes a day. Initially it's better to do it under supervision. Basically it depends how much you want to change. And how much effort you are willing to put in.

What you are describing sounds like a normal scenario. There is nothing wrong in being upset and angry occasionally when it is justified as anger has got some beneficial uses. However you seem to not like feeling so which may indicate you may need to find alternative ways of letting others know you are angry.
Next Steps
Do use simple breathing techniques and relaxation techniques. Readily available through several web sources Practice thinking about the other persons viewpoint. Take time before you respond
Health Tips
Think one justification to argue why other person s words or action is justifiable Say to yourselves I CAN FORGIVE
