How anger affects our body -
Extra adrenaline is secreted
Blood pressure rises
The sympathetic nervous system diverts blood from the liver, stomach and intestines to the heart, central nervous system and muscles
Digestion is suspended
Glucose is freed from reserves in our liver to provide energy for action
Cortisol production is increased which depresses the immune system
Men have an increased supply of the hormone testosterone
The spleen contracts and discharges its chemicals into the blood
At the same time, thinking becomes more primitive, and modern intelligence, a significant part of what makes us human, disappears. It is a primal, energised state, similar in many ways to sexual arousal, so it can be quite addictive.
The first step is to find out what is causing the angry behaviour. Anger doesn't just happen; it is a response to something in the environment. So, what is triggering it? Stress, the need for control, low self esteem? Or perhaps the person may not have learned the skills of negotiation or compromise; maybe it is related to previous traumatic events that need to be de-traumatized? If so, we can help you de-traumatize the memories, through guided imagery. This will help you to learn how to mange your emotional states once they begin and rehearse staying calm in situations which previously caused angry outbursts.
"Speak when you're angry - and you will make the best speech you will ever regret"
"Anyone can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose and in the right way - that is not easy"
"The surest sign that you haven't any sense is to argue with someone who hasn't"
- Dr Lawrence Peters
"Out of control, you are at the mercy of your anger.... you need a new kind of relationship with your emotions, one where you run them instead of them run you"
- Maria Anapaxis
"For he who gives no fuel to fire puts it out, and likewise he who does not in the beginning nurse his wrath and does not puff himself up with anger there by takes precautions against it and destroys it"
"Silence is one of the hardest things to refute"
- Henry Wheeler Shaw
"In the march towards truth, anger, selfishness, hatred etc., naturally give way, for otherwise truth would be impossible to attain. A man who is swayed by passions may have good enough intentions, may be truthful in word, but he will never find the truth"
