Anger = Stress – You have to take control

Anger = Stress – You have to take control

Janet Schwab

Anger = Stress – You have to take control with Massage

We often hear about the temperature of the planet rising due to climate change. But what about the country’s rising emotional temperature?

In a world where things feel out of control, daily episodes of anger produce unhealthy chronic stress that damages the body.

Anger literally hijacks the rational and thinking part of the brain. The brain quickly responds to fear and even perceived threats by activating the body’s fight-or-flight stress response. This causes your body and brain to be flooded with the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline. But when cortisol remains in the body two or more days, it affects the body’s immune system, impairs memory, and reduces the cells that fight viruses.

Massage boosts the immune system, improves circulation and inhibits stress hormones. But while you wait for your next appointment consider these tips:

Rate your anger.

a) Small anger or annoyance that's quickly forgotten

b) Medium-size anger that makes you really mad or upset

c) Super-sized anger that prompts you to lose control

Breathe and relax your body.

If your body is relaxed, your mind will also feel more at ease and change your facial expression by smiling.

Get curious about your anger.

What triggered your anger? How appropriate is the level of your anger to the issue that produced it?

There’s no rush and no one to hit over the head, especially yourself. There’s just untying anger, one small knot at a time. Be conscious of the stress it creates in your life and take control.
