1. Tear Out Newspapers
Tearing newspaper, tissues or useless paper can work therapeutically in releasing your anger. Whenever you feel frustrated, you can forcefully tear down papers to relax and avoid destroying anything precious. You can also choose old magazines and burn them if it gives you better satisfaction.
2. Beat Mattress with Stick
In most cases, anger is tied up with a feeling of fear and guilt. This takes the shape of frustration and adrenaline rush, usually when people are not able to express themselves due to terror. If you feel violent urges, roll down the mattress and hit it hard with a big stick.
You can keep hitting it until you feel composed. This is a great therapy to curb any violence and still discharge your anger.
3. Get a Punching Bag
When you feel like punching someone, get a punching bag and treat it the way you would like to address them. This is a great way to let your aggression out besides practicing boxing for fitness and good health. In fact, hitting a punching bag can have a cathartic effect on your stress levels. Be sure of using protective headgear and gloves in order to avoid getting hurt.
4. Hit a Stuffed Pillow
If you cannot get a professional punching bag, you can get yourself a stuffed cotton pillow that you punch to express your anger; however, make sure that you do not hurt yourself while hitting.
Use protective hand movements. Start by hitting the bag for 3 to 4 minutes straight. Take a break, breathe a little and drink some water. Repeat until you feel calm.
5. Draw a Face on a Ball and Kick It
If you want to release your anger on somebody specific, take a ball and draw their face on it (the best part is that it can be as worst as you like). Feel free to kick the ball and throw it around until you are ready to let it go.
