Remember This the Next Time You Get Angry

Anger is perhaps one of the most dangerous emotional responses because it is incredibly powerful. While at some points of our life, anger can be a necessary emotion that releases adrenaline and helps us get out of a dangerous situation, too much anger can deteriorate one’s health. When anger is uncontrolled and without functional value, it can quickly become the brain’s go-to emotion. When this happens, it becomes an immediate response, which spirals out of control. The more an individual gets angry, the more likely they are to become irrationally angry in the future. Anger clouds our ability to think rationally, so once you’re angry, it’s hard to level back out. Next time you feel yourself getting angry, try and take a few deep breaths and relax before you react.
