Let's face it: we all get angry. And although we'd like to believe it's possible—for most of us—no amount of mindfulness practice or exercises in compassion will make us immune to getting mad or frustrated every once in a while.
So how do we deal? The most important thing to remember is that getting angry from time to time doesn't (in any way, shape, or form) make you a bad yogi, wellness warrior, or person. The feelings we feel and the actions of others aren't always up to us, but what we decide to do with those feelings and how we decide to occupy our space in the world is greatly within our power.
So let's take a close look and figure out how to deal with anger holistically, intelligently, and without judgment. Because it's not about stopping anger in its tracks; learning how to treat ourselves and others as we move through anger is the true lesson that many of us need to learn.
