Why Anger is Dangerous and How to Control it

Anger is like driving a car under the influence of drugs or alcohol. When you are dominated by anger, just like drunk driving, your mind can not decide what is right and wrong. Every human being is having this strong emotion chiseled somewhere inside them. Some suppress it through self-control, some give it a royal chance to take them over. But those who give anger a fair chance to take control of their emotions suffer from a myriad of problems. When Anger attacks, the breath rate, and heart rate rises, like when we do vigorous exercise. In exercise, we gain positive energy; and activeness, whereas we are overloaded with negative energy, draining our energy while exposing ourselves to anger.

Here I am writing a few things about what anger can do with you.

1.Ruins Relationship: A bond between two human beings is formed by adding various emotions. It goes through a roller coaster ride throughout life but what keeps its hold on the winding track is the friction of two people’s understanding and trust. But when anger enters forcefully inside the door between them, it tries to sting its venom in the relationship and destroys it. It creates misunderstanding, sprouts ego, and tries it’s best to smash the relationship in every possible way.

2.Gives stress: We all know stress is not healthy for us. Anger makes us uneasy and gives us lots of stress by releasing the stress hormone called cortisol.

3.Unable to see the clear road: When you are under the influence of anger, you cannot make proper decisions. It baffles your thought, and most of the time, you may take an adverse decision out of aggression.

4.Breaks trust: The fume of anger shades a layer of misunderstanding and cracks the wall of trust. People often avoid communicating with furious people. They are afraid of any healthy discussion. This communication gap can lead to a crack in the wall of trust.

5.Bood pressure: Too much anger can lead to high blood pressure and heart disease. Not only that, but it also lowers our immune system.

6.Makes you uneasy: Anger forces us to react quickly to protect ourselves. These impulsive reactions lead to spitting harsh words, irritation, and sometimes depression.

How to Control Anger?

1.Counting numbers: You have to count slowly like a child from 1 to 10 before taking any action. Avoid “leaping in with an angry response.

2.Slow down your breathing process and try to catch it. This process will help you to stay calm and to think clearly.

3.Exercise: Doing exercise helps in releasing chemicals like dopamine and serotonin into your body. Moving your body improves your state of mind and makes you less prone to anger.

4.Indulge yourself in practicing relaxation techniques like mindfulness or centering; it will help to cope with stress over the longer term.

5.Avoid drinking alcohol: Overindulgence can lower your inhibitions and make you more prone to outbursts.

6.Open your heart: When you hold back things inside for a longer time. It starts forming frustrations. It’s like the volcano that will erupt someday. So, discuss your feelings with your friends and loved ones.

7.Release the hot balloon: When you are burning inside, try to let it go. Holding back the grudges can burn your house. It is wise to keep it under control. It will help to settle down past bitterness and gift you peace of mind.

8.Go for a walk: Walking helps a lot in releasing anger. Pause the chaos for a moment and go for a walk. It will help in controlling the outrage.

Never allow anger to take control of your entire mind if you don’t want to be stuck in any chaos of life.
