Managing Anger

For years, psychologists have been telling us to let our anger out. Express it. Don’t hold it in. Now there’s a new school of thought that says: getting angry is not only unhealthy, it’s counterproductive.

Think about anger from the perspective of the person you become angry with; Is that person really going to want to help you out after you’ve given him or her a verbal tongue lashing? Is that person going to want to work faster after you angrily accuse him or her of taking forever? Is that person going to want to help you solve your problem (i.e., whatever it is you’re angry about) if he or she privately thinks that you are just a big jerk?

In addition to jeopardizing your interpersonal relationships, anger can also make you sick. People who have problems with anger are at greater risk for:

  • Digestive disorders
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

Anger may be the #1 reason why people get fired, are forced to retire early, or are not promoted. More marriages break up, more people get thrown in jail, more murders are committed because people don’t know how to manage anger.
