*copied from MayoClinic:

  • Stick with your treatment. Attend your therapy sessions, practice your coping skills, and if your doctor has prescribed medication, be sure to take it. Your doctor may suggest maintenance medication to avoid recurrence of explosive episodes.
  • Practice relaxation techniques. Regular use of deep breathing, relaxing imagery or yoga may help you stay calm.
  • Develop new ways of thinking (cognitive restructuring). Changing the way you think about a frustrating situation by using rational thoughts, reasonable expectations and logic may improve how you view and react to an event.
  • Use problem-solving. Make a plan to find a way to solve a frustrating problem. Even if you can't fix the problem right away, having a plan can refocus your energy.
  • Learn ways to improve your communication. Listen to the message the other person is trying to share, and then think about your best response rather than saying the first thing that pops into your head.
  • Change your environment. When possible, leave or avoid situations that upset you. Also, scheduling personal time may enable you to better handle an upcoming stressful or frustrating situation.
  • Avoid mood-altering substances. Don't use alcohol or recreational or illegal drugs.

One of our headmates has it and it helped them quite a bit so maybe some of these can help! - Zaro
