The feeling of anger arises because of the way we interpret and react to various situations. It is normal for humans to loose temper once in a while. Every individual has his own trigger points like which things make them angry or give them joy. Some of such common trigger points include situations in which one feels: being threatened or attacked.
- Feeling frustrated
- Feeling there is nothing in your hand and you cannot control anything
- Feeling that one is being treated unfairly
- Feeling disrespected or insulted by others
- Financial or professional instability
How does Anger affect your mind?
Whenever we get angry or lose our temper, we mostly get into a fight with another person. It may not be intentional, but you would not be able to realize it then. Anger overpowers you!
At the time we were angry, we tend to lose our ability to fully recognize the consequences that would come from our actions. Anger leads us to behave in ways that we normally would never be. Our calm personality is totally opposite to what we are when we are angry.
If you get a little angry occasionally and are able to get your anger in control, it is of no big harm. But getting angry frequently, very quickly and getting paranoid at small little things clearly calls for “anger management”.
Anger is no good for our health and mental peace as well. You will always feel sad and low if you get angry a lot. People who get angry very quickly, fiercely and aggressively commonly suffer from long-term health consequences. There is a constant rise in heart rate and blood pressure. This factor increases the risk of heart disease, high or low blood pressure and other cardiovascular issues.
There are a million ways in which anger is harmful to your health, mind and personal life. Take a deep breath and look back at the things, opportunities and people you have lost because of anger. Take control over yourself, do not let anger overpower you. In case you need any help or want to talk about it, contact Living in Wellbeing. We are just a call away from you!
