Here are a few tips on how to manage your anger better:

Take a "timeout" - try counting to 10 before reacting.

Take a break from the person you're angry with until you feel less angry.

Express your anger, but only once you have calmed down.

Get moving: exercise can be a healthy outlet for your emotions.

Think carefully before you speak.

Find solutions to the problem instead of focusing on the person who has made you angry.

Forgive and let go of the issue; don't bear a grudge. - mayoclinic.com; angermanagementtips.com
