Anger happens to be one of the main by-products of stress. Leading a relaxed life could help one fight stress and anger. Anger is a negative emotion and should be done away with. Doing deep breathing exercises could help eliminate anger. While inhaling in deep breathing exercises one should feel deep calm thoughts coming in and exhaling should give one the feeling that one is let going of pent-up anger. Just counting till 10 before taking any action also helps.


In addition spending quality time with ones family helps to promote emotional health. If the members of a family eat together family ties are tightened, and also emotional health.

If one goes for an annual vacation with family/ and friends it could make one feel good returning to the daily grind. This annual vacation could be visiting family or friends or to a place of nature.
