Meditation for Anger Management
Meditation can be a powerful tool for managing anger. With reduced levels of stress acting on the body and mind, we become more able to distinguish between non-threatening and threatening situations, and find that we are less threatened by life and as a result, become less hostile.

- The problem
For hundreds of thousands of years, one of our primary concerns was to save ourselves from danger, and evolution dictated that we had an incredibly responsive fight or flight response to help us do this.
Because of the overtly stimulating nature of modern existence, we find that we unwittingly perceive everyday challenges as threats to our existence, and this invokes our inborn aggression.
If we are under a lot of stress, are living with financial or family trouble, or have profoundly negative experiences in our past, we may be especially prone to anger. If we don’t know how to deal with anger healthily, it can result in severe ramifications across our personal and professional lives.
Unhealthy ways of dealing with our anger include outward aggression (such a yelling and slamming doors), inward aggression (for example, telling yourself negative things or engaging in self-harm) and passive aggression (such as deliberately antagonising others in non-direct ways).

When I started meditating I had a real anger in me, and I would take this out on my first wife. Two weeks after I started meditating, this anger lifted.”
