Anger is destructive, control it with yoga

The human body undergoes a lot of changes when you are angry. Blood flows in to the hands, driving you to grab any weapon or nearby object, your heartbeat increases and there is an adrenaline rush. This stage is called fight or flight response, which is triggered by the sympathetic nervous system, which is a branch of the autonomous nervous system. Here are a few yoga asanas, pranayama and meditation techniques , which will help in calming you down. Try to practise them for 30 minutes everyday to get results.

Sashanka asana:

1. Sit in Vajrasana, slowly raise both your hands while breathing in and slowly put your palms down on the floor and breathe out.

2. Bend your elbows to touch the floor, finally touching the floor with your forehead. Remain in this position for at least for 30 to 60 seconds.


1. Lie down on the floor and spread out your hands and legs. Let the palms face the roof. Close your eyes.

2. Observe your abdominal movements while you are breathing in. If your breathing movement is correct, your abdomen wall will move upwards when you breathe in and go in when you breathe out. 2. Remain in this posture for at least 10 minutes.

Chandra Bhedana pranayama:

1. Sit in a comfortable posture and close your eyes. Close your right nostril with your right thumb.

2. Breathe in slowly with your left nostril, close both your nostrils with your right thumb and ring finger.

3. Then touch the chest with your chin. Remain in this position for six seconds and slowly straighten your neck.

4. Slowly breathe out through your right nostril while closing the left nostril with your right thumb.

5. This is one round. Repeat 1020 times. This pranayama activates your para sympathetic nervous system, which in turn calms your temper.

Meditation to calm anger:

There are quite a few meditation techniques that can calm you down. Here is a simple technique that can be learnt and followed easily.

1. Sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, straighten your back and observe your breathing.

2. Observe your abdominal movements, while you breathe in the abdominal wall should come out and while you breathe out it should go in. Do this for two min utes.

3. Slowly count backwards from 100 to 1 in your mind, giving a gap of one second between each digit.

4. During that gap say Om or utter any other sound you like.

5. While you are counting down if you miss a digit, begin counting from 100 again.

6. Practice this for at least 15 minutes.

Note: Anger is a natural instinct, which you cannot completely get rid of. But by practicing yoga and meditation you can understand how much damage anger can cause and you will learn to distance yourself from this emotion.
