Learn How to Express Anger in a Healthy Way This December
Anger is a common and healthy emotion that everyone experiences. Anger can be triggered by a variety of factors, including stress, sleep patterns, and external factors. Everyone gets angry from time to time, and some people get angry quite frequently; but how can you tell the difference between healthy and unhealthy anger?
Unhealthy anger is an out of control emotion that causes physical or mental harm to the individual and those close to them. People who experience unhealthy anger see problems in their personal relationships and their work lives.
Luckily, there are ways to improve anger issues on your own. First, it’s important to recognize trigger items. Second, recognize anger inducing patterns. Blaming others, creating generalizations such as “you ALWAYS do this”, or obsessing over any particular issue can lead to unhealthy anger. Finally, work on decompressing techniques. Find a meditation practice or an exercise regimen that helps you clear your head. Follow the Alliance for Children and Families Facebook page for more insight into anger management all month. Anger can be controlled and improved, so be sure to continue working to improve your mental health a little more every day.
