WHAT IS ANGER?

We all know what anger is, and we have all felt it.  We all get angry sometimes. Different people feel and show anger in different ways—some suppress it others express it. Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it is not controlled and managed properly it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems in your personal relationships, at work, and in the overall quality of your life. We can do and/or say things we regret when we are angry.

Do you know a friend, relative, a spouse who struggles with anger? You probably don’t have to look any further than your own mirror.

Do you get angry because your expectations are not met, or your goals are being violated? Then come just the way you are. Come learn what makes you angry and how to manage or control your anger so it does not destroy your relationship with your family members and others, and your quality of life.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

You’ll learn to see these triggers coming long before they have a chance to erupt into serious problems at home or at work. You’ll learn practical tools to handle tough situations. You’ll also get a chance to practice effective methods of communication in a safe environment. You’ll learn how to best express complaints or dissatisfaction, as well as improve your ability to be clear and assertive.

Acupuncture Family Healthcare Clinic offers anger management individual therapy and/or group classes once per week.

ANGER MAKES YOU ILL

When we are angry the body releases stress hormones, such as adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol. The heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and breathing rate increase. Regular episodes of anger can eventually make people ill.

Uncontrolled or unresolved anger can lead to the following physical health problems:

  1.  Backache
  2.  Headaches
  3.  Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  4.  Insomnia
  5.  Irritable bowel syndrome, or other digestive disorders
  6.  Skin disorders
  7.  Stroke
  8.  Heart attack
  9.  Lower pain threshold
  10.  Weakened immune system, resulting in more infections, colds, and influenza
