How do you relax/blow off steam when mad?

Sometimes the simpliest things are the best.
Sometimes i will just take a bath or just listen to music.
Also, a nap can be good at times.

:gamerage:  I try not to get mad. It makes my blood pressure rise. But if I need to blow off steam due to being angry. I meditate and do yoga as well. I find that expelling pent up negative energy is a great way to turn on endorphines in my brain which gives me a feeling a relief and all around great feeling. Doing it this way, I don't need to us chemicals to make me feel better. Yaaaay.

Well I use to hit walls in order to calm down, but I found that my fists would hurt after that. Now I will usually just yell some sort of battle cry and then sit down and meditate. I kind of wish I would have discovered meditation a long time ago, it would have saved some walls.

I play fighting games or just exercise. I found that playing Injustice: Gods Among Us or Mortal Kombat always helps me blow off steam when I am mad. Also, if I feel like physically punching something, I will just go jogging or do push-ups or something like that, to calm down.

I isolate myself and concentrate on the internet or games where I can be myself.

I usually listen to music that fits the mood. Rarely anything uplifting. I think it's because it's almost like venting accept someone else is coming up with the words in a more colorful. Recently I've taken to also writing my rage down into a journal or going for a walk.

Whenever someone gets me mad I usually like to confront them head on and try to come to an understanding or resolution right away.  If this proves impossible I usually just walk away make is a point to breathe and carry on with whatever I must do.  If I'm home I would probably just sit back and watch a movie or listen to some music.  If I'm outside I would walk it out.

music is like a cure with side effects to me. So i dont listen to music.
I scratch papers with pens, spend time in solitude..and play games.

A difficult question especially if you're really angry. I have noticed that it's road rage for me most of the time. And many times when I'm pissed off with lousy driving , I try to double think who was right or wrong because it's hard to go on rage and stop it. So I double check on myself and try to be rationale, in that way by temper is controlled. Same thing that I do when I'm angry in the house or at work, I let my reason rule me first, being cool, and it pays off actually.
