The first thing is to stop what you are doing. Then take some deep breaths, count to ten or more if you need to, but count until you are calm and then get back to doing what you were doing.

Once you have done all of this and find that it is still not enough, then the next step in the strategy is to leave and go somewhere else until you are calm enough to proceed.

If you have still not calmed down after half an hour, then you really should seek help right away with managing your anger.
