What is Anger?

Everyone is likely to experience anger at some point with research showing that adults feel anger, from moderate annoyance to rage, on the average of six times a day.

Anger is a normal, healthy emotion. However, when expressing this emotion, it can easily get out of control. Chronic, explosive anger can have serious consequences for you, both personal and professional relationships, your health, and your state of mind.

Problem with anger usually occur as rapid anger reaction reduces our ability to reason. As a result our reactions may be impulsive and dangerous to ourselves or others. We feel angry when we feel threatened or wronged. Anger is part of what is known as Fight/Flight alarm response, preparing us to threaten, fight, or run away (the three primitive and basic ways to solve a problem). When our anger is moderate to intense, we experience that primitive and basic reaction.  As our anger grows toward a rage, we lose our ability to reason logically, making reactive, instinctual decisions.
