Anger Management

There is nothing wrong with feeling angry. It’s normal, natural and sometimes necessary. Anger is an adaptive emotional response to experiences of hurt, injustice, fear and frustration. Anger often inspires a powerful physical response in the body, such as a rush of adrenaline, increased blood pressure, increased heart-rate and fast breathing. This physical response can lead to aggressive behavior, which allows us to defend ourselves if attacked. Feeling anger is not the problem, it’s what we do with that volatile emotion that can lead to problems. Anger, if not managed properly, can become destructive at work, in relationships, and affect our overall well-being.
