Keeping that anger of yours in check
Sir Post-A-Lot here once again! First let me apologies for the extended delay as it’s been a busy few weeks here at The Mind. But we’re glad to be back and we’re excited to share our latest find here with you!
Today we share with you a brilliant article titled “A Beginner’s Guide to Managing Anger” from the good folks at goodtherapy.org. In it, they write about several good ways that we can use to try and curb our anger.
I think it’s important for us to understand that by and large, anger is something that is actually very beneficial for us. Anger is something that helps keep us safe from harm. It’s a defence mechanism inherited from our more animalistic side with one goal in mine, to ensure that we survive.
The thing to remember about anger is that whilst it is an automatic reaction to negative situations, what we do with the emotion is our decision to make. And what I mean by that is that we can choose what we do with the anger, and at the end of the day, that’s what matters. The article at Goodtherapy.org shares some great tips on how you can redirect your anger into something a little more helpful for you.
Right, Sir Post-A-Lot signing off! Have a good one folks!
