Anger. We all know how it feels. Anger is an entirely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control, it can become destructive to relationships and the overall quality of your life.

Anger, like other emotions, is accompanied by physiological and biological changes; when you get angry, your heart rate and blood pressure go up, and so do the levels of your energy hormones and adrenaline.

The instinctive, natural way to express anger is to respond aggressively. Anger is a natural, adaptive response to threats, and it inspires powerful, often aggressive, feelings and behaviours, which allow us to fight and defend ourselves when we are attacked. A certain amount of anger, therefore, is necessary for our survival.

On the other hand, we can’t possibly lash out at every person or object that irritates or annoys us. Laws, social norms, and common sense limit how far our anger can take us.

We can deal with angry feelings by either expressing, suppressing or calming them.

And in this episode, I will guide you in calming down your anger inside. This approach affects your outward emotional behaviour and your internal responses; taking steps to lower your heart rate, calm yourself down, and let the feelings subside.

Listen to this episode for:

  • lowering your heart rate
  • calming yourself down
  • letting the feelings subside
