I came across this simple and practical technique to diffuse anger on NICABM.
This technique can be used in two situations
- To diffuse anger
- To stay calm when you are discussing something with your spouse. You can ask your spouse to use this technique as well.
All you need to do is to open your palms and keep them (also known as willing hands) on your knees or at the side of your body.
You can also watch a video on this.
