There are so many reports of more anger in the world today. We have road rage when people lose their tempers at other drivers. There is more aggression and bullying in the workplace these days. Many schools report bad cases of aggression against students and teachers. Poor anger control certainly causes a lot of problems!

Anger is a very strong emotion and it can be hard to control. It is one of our most basic responses and it comes from the same reaction that triggers anxiety. The fight and flight response. Once that is triggered the body prepares itself for action. This is good if there really is a threat, but it causes a lot of problems in everyday life when there is not really any danger.

When we are feeling angry our brain is more focused on preparing to react than to think things over carefully. The parts of the brain that help us to make good decisions is slowed down when anger is high. That is why we can do things when angry that later on we wish we hadn't. Often this can mean problems in relationships, problems at work or, in the worst cases, problems with the legal system.

There are many things that you can do to learn better anger management techniques. Lots of people benefit from self help books and programs, seeing a therapist or attending a group program. Sadly, a lot of people with anger problems refuse to get help, and things usually only get worse without it. Learning to manage anger is like any other skill that we learn. It takes the right knowledge, spending time learning new skills and practicing those skills until they become habits. With time and effort, anyone can improve their anger control if they are well motivated.

One problem with attending anger therapy or seeing a counselor is that often people feel very uncomfortable discussing their personal problems with a stranger. Or the costs of therapy can often be very expensive for many people. Often people are reluctant to share personal information in an anger management class. But if you share, you will benefit from the experience and most classes have confidentiality arrangements in place.

So whether you choose a class, a book an online course, it can all be helpful, So long as it is focused on teaching you anger control methods that teach you to recognize when your anger is increasing and challenge unhelpful thinking patterns, then it should get good results. Take the time to start noticing what happens in your body when you are angry and how your thoughts begin to change. This is a good start to better anger control.
