ANGER ON MY MIND

Anger and disease

Posted on: May 5, 2007

I continue to read “When anger Hurts.” In chapter 3 the author establishes that chronic anger has a severe impact on the heart, stomach, liver and other organs. The evidence is clear that harboring feelings of hostility over long periods of time lead to the release of hormone that can harden arteries and impair the liver and stomach. Personality types that are impatient, ever seeking dominance and high strung are at especial high risk. However there is hope. Learning the cognitive to rethink the way we view situations is key to reducing hostility. A simple change in perspective when you have to wait longer in the bank line than you wanted to for example will not only keep you calm but you may also be adding years to your life. Anger hurts if not expressed appropriately so seek the help of a certified anger management facilitator in our area who is trained to teach the skills needed to improve communication, stress management, emotional intelligence and anger management.
