What to do when you're angry
Anger is a normal emotion experienced by everyone. People often think about anger as a negative emotion, but anger can actually be helpful. It can motivate us to solve problems and achieve goals.
However, if we fail to deal with anger constructively, it can damage our relationships and create other problems. Unexpressed anger can be extremely stressful and result in high levels of tension and anxiety, health problems and increased accidents. It is essential that we understand the reasons for our anger, how it affects us and how to effectively manage it.
