The following are the top 10 anger management tips and anger management activities that are based on Christian Biblical principles.

1. Temper your Temper 
When someone annoys you and fans the flames of ire within you, Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry. (Ecclesiastes 7:9) Therefore, if you have been provoked, engaging in anger management activities such as taking a few deep breaths to cool down or going for a walk and leaving the burning issue or listening to soothing music and defuse your temper completely. If despite all this you still get livid, Be ye angry, and sin not (Ephesians 4:26) with your words or actions.

If you are infuriated and also expected to make a decision, request for time to think about it so that you can reflect on the issue when you are cooler, calmer and more collected and not make a decision when you are mad (pun intended). 
Lord, Shut Me Up

2. Extinguish the Ire 
Extinguishing the angry flames inside you as quickly as they arise is one of the best anger management tips since we are told, Let not the sun go down upon your wrath (Ephesians 4:26) because Anger resteth in the bosom of fools. (Ecclesiastes 7:9) So, don't let anger simmer inside you for it may explode and hurt you, your relationships and even career.

3. Forgive and Forget 
Forgive the people who have hurt you and release them from your mind to release the rage that binds them to your heart. Forgive and then Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before (Philippians 3:13) move on into your future unchained by anger. 

4. Expunge Revenge 
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. (Romans 12:19) Therefore, do not think about or give in to the temptation to revenge nd hurt those who have hurt you. Let God avenge you as you cry out to Him in prayer saying, Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless. (Psalm 10:14) 

5. Control Yourself 
He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls. (Proverbs 25:28) Therefore, exercise self control for it acts as a wall which stops anger from controlling you. Even if you can't stop people from annoying you, you can defend yourself by controlling your response to them so that you act appropriately rather than just react (usually inappropriately) to the angering situation. 

6. Manage Angry People 
If you are having a discussion with a person and their temper begins to rise, learn to keep quiet as this should make them realize that they need to calm down if the conversation is to continue.

If their temper continues to flare and the temperature in the room continues to rise, walk away from the heat if you begin to feel threatened. Return once they have cooled down. When they have sufficiently calmed and you begin speaking again, speak quietly. This sets the tone for the conversation and gives the impression that you are in control of the situation. 

7. Avoid Angry People 
Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul. (Proverbs 22:24-25) Therefore, do not befriend or spend time with angry people or those who have a problem controlling their anger as you may adopt their ways and thereby trap yourself with their angry mannerisms. 

8. Exercise Aerobically 
Engage in aerobic exercises such as brisk walking, jogging, running, dancing, swimming, basketball or aerobic classes at your local gym for 2 hours each week to reduce the levels of stress hormones circulating in your system as these are designed to help you fight or take flight from your stressors or aggravators. Therefore, by "working out" you will be “working out” the stress hormones from your body and reducing the “fight” in your system.

9. Guard your Heart 
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23) This means that you should protect your mind since it is the source of your thoughts, feeling, words, actions and behaviour by carefully choosing what you think, what you read, what you watch and what you listen to.

Therefore, do not watch rage filled movies, read books populated with angry characters or listen to rage fuelled music for you will begin to seethe mentally, feel angry, rant and rave over minor issues and loose you top over minor issues. 

10. Vent Constructively 
When you feel toxic anger building up inside you, release it safely 
by venting constructively to prevent losing your temper inappropriately . This is a very important anger managment technique since it prevents you from hurting other people and aggravating your situation. Therefore, vent constructively by speaking to a trusted confidant (a close friend is a safer bet than a workmate) or writing down your feelings in a journal or painting your emotions on a canvas or engaging in vigorous physical activity such as boxing.
