However, you want to do that in a way that will encourage them to change the behavior that is making you angry, and not to just make them angry in return.

Healthy ways to get rid of your anger include exercise, writing out your thoughts, or just talking out your problems. Each variety of anger management allows you to process your emotions, without doing something that you will regret later. In this way you have allowed your emotions to come out, and you have done so in a constructive way.

Dealing with your emotions in a constructive way is really the main goal of expressing anger in a healthy way. When you write your probelms into a journal, you are allowing yourself to vent. However, you are also allowing yourself to write, and not only do you feel better that you have gotten out your anger, but you have done something productive with your day as well.

If you aren't much for writing, whatever it is that allows you to relieve your anger will be just fine. If you are a runner, and thats what you need to do to relieve your anger, that is a good way to relieve your anger after a long day of work. Not only will you get rid of your anger, but you will build stamina, and get into better shape at the same time.

If you choose to deal with it, you won't be nearly as angry, because you will take your problems head on, and it won't linger. If your problems don't linger, you won't have to deal with them nearly as often, or for as long. Less anger is the result of living a problem free life, or at least living with as few problems as possible.
