In her article, she emphasises “Anger is not the solution to any problem.” What inspired her to write this article was her concern to address this growing issue, which quite often disrupts individuals’ mental health and peace. Read the edited excerpts of this week’s scholar-journalist winner:

What inspired you to write on this topic ‘Control your anger before it overpowers’?

It was my own experience when I used to angry over little things that wasn’t even very significant. I used to waste my energy by focusing on minor things in life. This investment of mine wasn’t adding any value to my life.

Do you think anger and stress have become common these days among people? 

Yes certainly! Anger and stress mostly go hand-in-hand. People these days do not have the patience to understand and analyse a scenario. Rather, they jump to conclusions and even get angry at unnecessary things. In fact, people who are often stressed are more likely to experience anger.

What strategies do you use to keep your anger under control?

I practice deep breathing and that helps me to keep my anger at bay.

Do you think yoga and meditation are good ways to tackle angriness among people? Suggest how

Yes, of course! Yoga and meditation are good ways to tackle the anger among people as meditation gives peace of mind and yoga helps in developing strong mental health. 

What topic are you planning to write on next?

I am not sure yet about the topic but, in the coming days, I am planning to write something exciting.

Any learning you wish to share from your writing journey

I would like to mention that since the time I have started writing, along with improving my writing skill, I am able to develop new ideas. These ideas when I explain become helpful for readers to relate with their life and to cope up with the ways suggested.
