She got your job! He stole your idea! They passed you up again for that promotion! Regardless the reason, you HAVE to keep your cool when you’re in the workplace. You don’t realize it when you’re in the middle of a meltdown, but that temper of yours could cost you not only your job but your reputation as well.

If you don’t want to lose your job, you may want to figure out a way to take out that anger on the low.

Here are a few tips, courtesy of HelloBeautiful.com:

 

START THE COUNT DOWN IMMEDIATELY

Yes, you’ve heard it before and it sounds too easy to be effective but counting to ten can help give you time to get your thoughts in order and your emotions back in check. Resist the urge to simply number the righteous reasons for your anger. Concentrate on counting, giving a slight pause between each. If you are a praying person you may give yourself a ten word emergency prayer instead of using the numbers. Example: Lord (pause) help (pause) me (pause) to (pause) take (pause) control (pause) of (pause) myself (pause) right (pause) now.

INJECT HUMOR INTO THE SITUATION

Imagine yourself describing the situation in a humorous way. As many talented stand up comics have demonstrated, humor can take the sting out of almost any situation. Even the right description of childbirth can bring a laugh when told from a funny angle.

 

WORK IT OUT

Nothing beats getting your body in motion to help evaporate anger. Take a brisk walk, swim some laps, take a Zumba class, go on a bike ride, take a long walk. Get moving and send that anger packing.
