Anger Management

Everyone has been angry at some point. Even the most patient of people can get annoyed or irritated at times, such as becoming upset at other drivers or getting mad at someone who did not keep promises to you or damaged your personal property. Being interrupted, or just the way someone did or said something, might have gotten on your nerves. Many people become angry or irritable in situations like these.

Anger is an emotion that can range from mild annoyance to intense rage. People may become angry when they feel threatened, harmed, or powerless.
Some people may be more likely to feel anger in everyday situations because of a traumatic event in the past, such as combat, physical or sexual abuse, injury, or the loss of a loved one.
Others may experience anger because of the stress of such life events as getting married or divorced, changing jobs, retiring from work, or having family or job disputes.

Slightly different from anger, irritability is having a general tendency to be easily frustrated or impatient. Sometimes, irritability causes people to lash out at others, which can put a strain on personal and work relationships.
Constant anger and irritability can be bad for a person’s health, resulting in problems such as high blood pressure, headaches, ulcers, and other conditions.

If the signs and symptoms associated with anger and irritability are affecting your work or relationships, it could be a sign of underlying issues that need to be addressed. Cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness have been found to be quite effective in treating anger and irritability problems.
