When a person holds their anger in and blocks it out by thinking of other things, this is considered suppressing your anger. If too much anger is held in and not expressed it will lead to inward anger towards yourself. This can cause depression, high blood pressure, and hypertension. It may also lead to pathological expressions of anger, such as passive aggressive behavior which is when someone gets revenge by indirectly hurting someone or something without telling them what you are angry about.
Calming your anger with techniques such as meditation, deep, long breaths, counting backwards from 100, taking a long walk, or anything that will relax you will help you relax and focus bringing you to a better frame of mind. When a person is calm they can think more rationally and make better choices.
