|3 Suggestions When Angry|
|In Sha'ar HaKa'as, the Orchos Tzadikim
says that although getting angry is very bad, nevertheless there are
times when a person has a tendency to become angry more easily, such
as when you are fasting or when you are are in a difficult situation.
He goes on to make three suggestions when your nerves are frayed and
you re getting angry.|
1. Don't Talk - absolute silence can make the anger go away.
2. Speak in a Low Voice - Make up your mind that you will not raise your voice if you need to speak. Thisshould lower your blood pressure somewhat.
3. Don't Look
- Do not look the person you are angry with in the face. This will
just agravate the situation and raise your ire further. SPeak to them
without looking at them and you will calm down.
