Man is a 'social animal'. Hence, showing an aggressive behaviour is equivalent to showing an animal behaviour. Psychologists say that though violent behaviour is inherent but can be managed. Providing a healthy and cordial home environment to kids helps them to build strong family values and reduces the tendency to react violently. Similarly, avoiding over consumption of alcohol and other such substances check this behaviour. Rehabilitation homes and support programs are available for those who need professional help. Meditation and practicing yoga also helps to rectify this negative approach towards self and others.
Imagine putting on the brakes so that the way you’re acting and the way others are responding goes from eighty-five miles per hour to sixty-five, and then from sixty-five to fifty-five. Create a visual image of what you would look like and how other people would appear to you. Notice how they no longer seem as physically close to you. Listen carefully to what the other person is saying, and read the underlying message in their body language. Use the lower speed to see whether the person bothering you is open to conversation or closed off, whether they’re really looking to attack or are looking for a way out of this jam.
