Uncontrolled anger can do irreversible damage to yourself and others
Here’s a tip
Give yourself a little time before you respond to a trigger situation. You can even tell the other person that you are doing this. Take some long, slow breaths and walk away for a few minutes if possible until you feel that your heartbeat and breathing have slowed down to normal. Then you are more able to respond in a quiet, thoughtful way.
Whether it happens at work, in the home or when you are out and about, uncontrolled anger can do irreversible damage to yourself and others. Words cannot be taken back, unpleasant situations can rapidly escalate and can cost you your job, your friendships or even your marriage. Anger can get you into all sorts of trouble and have a lifelong detrimental effect on those around you, colleagues, neighbours and family members, especially children in their formative years.
Most people who have angry outbursts are not happy about it and it becomes increasingly difficult to reverse the damage to relationships. It can also be very detrimental to your health, often resulting in high blood pressure, headache, digestive problems, poor sleep and raised heart beat. Anger triggers the body’s ‘fight or flight’ response.. The adrenal glands flood the body with stress hormones, such as adrenaline and cortisol.
Hypnotherapy can help you to understand your own brain and why some of us store repeat behaviours that cause distress to others and ourselves.
You learn to understand the cause of your anger – and remember it is not circumstances or the fact that someone else has made you angry, it is your reaction that is the problem. You will learn to develop coping mechanisms so that you can still express your opinions but in a calm, rational controlled way.
Hypnotherapy is a talking therapy using the best of CBT and NLP, with hypnosis at the end of each session.
