4. Let it out

The best way is to let your anger out. Loosen your muscles by clenching and un-clenching your fists. Scream out loud in a pillow or maybe just have a good cry. You’ll feel a lot calmer after that.

5. Use ‘I’ instead of ‘You’

To end the argument without any blame game, use ‘I’ and not ‘You’. For example, ‘I am upset because you forgot to buy the tomatoes.’ and not ‘You always forget to buy the things I ask you to buy.’
