Are you easily angered? Do you find that you curse, throw things, yell, or use other inappropriate methods of expressing your emotions? Or do you keep your angry emotions inside until you feel depressed or physically ill? Anger is a common problem that is exacerbated by the stress of modern life. This does not mean you have to live with it. Dr. Meghana Dikshit offers anger management in Mumbai to help you find appropriate and effective ways to express and diffuse anger.
Understanding the Nature of Anger
Anger can vary from mild to intense. The emotion can cause physiological changes, such as an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and adrenaline levels. Anger can be caused by external events, or integral, such as worrying about a problem or situation in your life. Anger can harm relationships and your own health, so it is important to understand the causes of anger and effective ways to manage your emotions.
Too often, anger is expressed aggressively. When we are attacked and must defend ourselves, this can be useful. However, if we lash out at everything and everyone that irritates us, anger can cause many more problems than it will ever solve. Understanding what triggers anger and learning how to manage it will prevent anger from disrupting your life.
Studies of anger have shown that some people are more easily angered than others. Those prone to anger may have a low tolerance for frustration and irritation, often from the time they are babies or small children. Research has shown that this can be genetic, physiological, and impacted by family background. Fortunately, you don’t have to stay angry. You can learn to acknowledge your anger and let it go.
Learning to Manage Anger
A variety of methods and processes can be used to deal with feelings of anger. This can include expressing your feelings, suppressing your anger, or using calming techniques to reduce anger. You must be careful when suppressing anger to avoid turning it inward and causing feelings of depression. You can learn to convey your feelings and needs without hurting your family, friends, or co-workers.
A much more effective way of controlling your emotions and behavior is to learn to calm yourself and control your internal responses to anger. You cannot prevent all sources of irritation in life. However, you can learn to control your response and calm yourself, reduce your heartrate, and let the feelings of anger naturally fade. These techniques can be learned in counselling with Dr. Meghana.
