ANGER MANAGEMENT

ANGER

Anger is one of the most misunderstood and overused of human emotions. Anger is a natural emotion that every human and many non-human animals experience. We need to understand that anger is a reaction to an inner emotion and not a planned action.


Mild forms of human anger may include displeasure, irritation or dislike. When we react to frustration, criticism or a threat, we may become angry and usually this is a healthy response. Anger may be a secondary response to feeling sad, lonely or frightened.


Anger is not just a mental state of mind. It triggers an increase in heart rate, blood pressure and levels of adrenaline and noradrenaline.



Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to following problems:

  • Backache
  • Headache 
  • Stroke 
  • Skin problems
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Low self-esteem
  • Moodiness
  • Grief     
  • Rudeness
  • Tiredness
  • Hunger
  • Pain   
  • Some physical conditions, such as pre-menstrual syndroms 
  • Physical illness 
  • Mental illness 
  • Alcohol, some drugs, alcohol abuse, drug abuse 
  • Injustice
  • Being teased or bullied  
  • Humiliation
  • Embarrassment
  • Deadlines 
  • Traffic jam 
  • Disappointment
  • Failure
  • Infidelity
  • Burglary
  • Financial problems   
  • Being told you have a serious illness   

What Is Anger Management?

Anger management is a procedure of acquiring the skills to recognize signs that you are becoming angry, and taking action to deal with the situation in a positive way.



Dealing with Anger:

The first step in dealing with anger is to become aware of it. There are many ways to handle anger once you recognize it and get to the reason of it.

Relaxation: As simple as it sounds, basic relaxation exercises can be powerful tools in overcoming one's anger. Among these simple techniques are deep breathing. BREATH IN and OUT.

Express your anger: Make sure you do this when you have calmed down. Do this in an non-aggressive way.

Cognitive Restructuring: Cognitive restructuring is basically changing the way you think about things. This involves thinking more positively about a situation.

Problem Solving: Not all anger is inappropriate. Make a plan for how you can fix the situation and approach it with good intentions.

Better Communication: Angry people tend to jump to conclusions and overreact. By slowing down and thinking about what to say, this problem can be avoided. Also, make sure you understand what other people are saying before responding to them.

Using Humor: By refusing to take yourself too seriously, you can defuse your anger. Try using humorous imagery to lighten your mood or to make fun of yourself. However, you should avoid using sarcastic and harsh humor which is simply another expression of anger.

Change Your Environment: Often our environment contributes to our anger by causing irritation and fury. When stress becomes too intense, simply get away for 15 minutes and refresh.

Sleep: try to get at least 7 hours good quality sleep every night. Sleep is crucial for good mental and physical health.
