Breathe, take a walk in a park, watch tv, blog. With a blog you can let out your rage contructively without doing anything rash.

 I'm usually even tempered and it takes a lot to piss me off.  However when I'm pissed or even irritated about something I usually go for a walk with my headphones and some good music.  Most of the time when I'm angry I start by listening to some "angry" music and then as I calm down I'm listening to more calming, romantic type music.  However getting angry is healthy and a normal part of life.  How you handle it is the problem. 

Some people journal, some work out, some run, call someone on the phone to vent, maybe even vent online, some play contact sports, box, scream.  But for me I have to move, because moving helps me to release it.  The purpose of going for a walk is for me to leave the anger outside of the home (when the weather is cooperating).  GL.

I draw or paint. I'll turn on some music and get my paints out. Or I'll just keep drawing until I've calmed down. I'll usually find my longest album and put it on. Sometimes I'll forget it's on after I zoneout and draw angrily until I hear the needle get to the sticker and makes that awful scratching noise. Usually it snaps me out of it. Then I replay the record and do it all again but with a calm attitude and then think of what I can do about it.
