Anger as an emotion is not a bad thing when channelled appropriately. In some situations, anger can actually be a helpful feeling. As an emotional response, anger informs us as to whether we think we are being treated unfairly, being taken advantage of, or are losing something important to us.
As one of the hardwired 7 basic emotions (along with fear, disgust, happiness, sadness, surprise and contempt), it is completely natural to feel anger, even on a semi-regular basis. Managing the level of anger you experience is important not only for the people around you but also for your own happiness and wellbeing.
High-stress emotions like anger, especially in frequent outbursts, can have a negative effect on your physical health as well as your mental health, performance at work, and relationships. If anger runs your life, negatively affects the people around you, or is affecting your health, then you might want to seek help with our anger management in Newcastle service.
