Identify Your Fears or Triggers
What is causing the anger? Are there certain situations, habits, or things that cause your anger? Take the time to evaluative your behavior and your surroundings.

Find the Positivity
When you start to feel angry, train yourself to find the silver lining instead of dwelling on the emotion. Don’t let anger continue to ruin your day. Stop it in its tracks. Out of every failure or success is a lesson to be learned or a new experience to participate in that furthers you as an individual.
Experience Your Feelings
Don’t ignore your anger. Acknowledge the feeling and control it to understand it fully. Just don’t let it cloud your judgment. Be respectful to others and walk away. Your troubles are no one else's responsibilities but your own. Even if someone is disrespectful to you, you never stoop to their level.
It only makes the situation worse and furthers your anger. However, giving yourself a short moment to feel your anger gives you the ability to stop it before it further ruins your day.

Be mindful of your emotions, as well as how your words and actions make others feel. Put yourself in the other person’s position and ask yourself how you would want to be treated.
