12 steps to anger control for Muslims

How should Muslims control their anger? According to THIS Islamic website:

Anger is one of the evil whispers of Shaytaan, which leads to so many evils and tragedies, of which only Allaah knows their full extent. For this reason Islaam has a great deal to say about this bad characteristic, and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) described cures for this "disease" and ways to limit its effects, among which are the following: 
(1) Seeking refuge with Allaah from the Shaytaan.

(2) Keeping silent.

(3) Not moving.

(4) Following the advice of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).

(5) Remembering what Allaah has promised to the righteous.

(6) Knowing the high status and advantages offered to those who control themselves.

(7) Following the Prophet’s example in the case of anger.

(8) Knowing that resisting anger is one of the signs of righteousness (taqwaa).
(9) Listening to reminders.

(10) Knowing the bad effects of anger.

(11) The angry person should think about himself during moments of anger.

(12) Du’aa’.
