Do you like to “vent” your negative emotions?
Many people think that expressing anger is healthy-minded and relieves their feelings. Not often so. Studies show that expressing anger only aggravates it. I’’ve found this to be true, for myself and for clients. Often anger (a natural emotion) can be ended by silence. Many, when they “get going” can escalate rapidly into a fury. It’s better to behave calmly and communicate effectively when time passes.
A large section of the “Anger Management” curriculum is MBSR: Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, which includes relaxation breathing, guided meditation and progressive muscle relaxation. Discussing anger challenges with a professional and keeping a log of incidents and your reactions reveals patterns and triggers that can be reversed. EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) helps too!
