The Effects of Stress and Anger

Do you know that anger and stress (fear) are emotional expressions that are strongly related? I’m guessing you know that already, but what you may not know is just how exactly they are related. So, read on to get yourself acquainted.

When you get frustrated, your body respond by negatively exerting so much effort, and this can reduce your energy levels, psychically and emotionally. Now, the resultant effect of this energy leakage is the inability to concentrate and remember things which can leave you feeling extremely stressed out.

In the same light, there is every possibility that you have expressed anger at least once in your life as a result of being stressed out. Well, that is so because stress plays a major role in anger outbursts. Studies have shown that we find it extremely difficult to keep our anger in check and maintain calmness during stressful situations.

The effect of stress can be so telling that it can leave us vulnerable to anger outburst so much so that we can express our rage regardless of where we may be. An excellent example of this fact can be seen in the office rage report made by the Mental Health Organization in 2008.

According to the report, 51% of office workers in the UK experience rage at work with issues like distractions cursed by colleagues’ mobile phones during meetings and when their computer crashes unexpectedly. Usually, these are not really supposed to cause rage but when the worker is already stressed then minor situations like these can get the better of them and cause office rage in a working environment that is supposed to be warm, friendly and of course productive.

Owing to their close relationship, stress and anger management can be handled together. But the question is, how can we do that? Let’s address that in the remaining part of this article, shall we?

If you are one, prone or quick to anger, the first step you could take in managing your anger is to consider stress, and the reason is that stress can fuel anger or resentment. From experience, a familiar feeling triggered when we work or when we are at work is that of stress.

The fact is, we often have a lot to accomplish on our to-do list within a few office hours. Such unavoidable work pressure inevitably takes its toll on us and leaves us vulnerable to anger at the slightest provocation. Therefore, you could try as often as possible to de-stress your mind and body. Trust me; you will be amazed at how good you can be at keeping your anger in check.

What happens when the reverse is the case? That is when we get stressed out as a result of uncontrolled anger. The best course of action to take in such situation is to seek professional help ASAP, join an anger management group or anger management counselling can help you develop key anger management skills that will enable you to keep your rage issues in check.

While the above steps are very effective ways of managing stress and anger, exercise could also help. Studies have shown that modest amount of exercise can have a huge impact on de-stressing our mind and bodies. It is therefore advisable that you create time to exercise at least 10-15 minutes every day.

Let me point out here that although running and jogging are the first actions that come to mind when we hear the word exercise, they are however not the only forms of exercise. Walking, dancing, standing, house chores activities, creative endeavors etc., are all forms of fun and exercise that can help relieve you of stress.

So, when next you are feeling stressful from enormous screen task at the office, you can do yourself a world of good by taking a walk or just jog for a while.
