Anger the volcano

Dr Amrutha Manoharan
No one is spared from this emotion whether young or old all have this emotion. When the anger assumes the most violent form in children it comes under the temper tantrum disorders. on the other hand, if an old person is getting angry, he/ she will sometimes shout, break things, beat someone. All of us have experienced this emotion at least even once in there lifetime.

Anger means displeasure; A strong feeling of grievance and displeasure.it is a strong feeling that comes when one has been wronged or insulted, or when one sees cruelty or injustice; the feeling that makes people want to quarrel or fight. [5]

The emotion that all of us experienced in our life  – ‘’ANGER’’

FROM WHERE THIS EMOTION IS CREATED
Emotions more or less begin inside two almond-shaped structures in our brains which are called the amygdala. The amygdala is the part of the brain responsible for identifying threats to our well-being, and for sending out an alarm when threats are identified that results in us taking steps to protect ourselves.

When a person becomes angry the brain releases neurotransmitter chemicals known as catecholamines, which is responsible for the sudden outburst of energy.

PHYSIOLOGICAL CHANGES DURING ANGER[8]
At the same time, your heart rate accelerates, your blood pressure rises, and your rate of breathing increases. Your face may flush as increased blood flow enters your limbs and extremities in preparation for physical action.

COMMON INGREDIENTS OF ANGER[3]

  • Unfairness – We believe that we have been treated unfairly. We tell ourselves that we deserve more, and we buy into this story that someone has wronged us.
  • Lost – We feel that we have lost something that we have identified ourselves with. Feelings, pride, money, car, job.
  • Blame – We blame other people or external situations for having caused our loss, for taking advantage of us unfairly. The blame often only resides in our heads and is a product of our imagination. We fail to see things from other people’s perspectives. We become deeply selfish.
  • Pain – We experience pain, mental distress, and anxiety. The pain causes physical responses in our body, which disturbs our natural energy flow and state of wellbeing.
  • Focus – We focus on the thing we don’t want, and energize it by complaining about it passionately, and repeating it to as many people who will listen. This creates a downward spiral of anger. “What we focus on expands”, this is true regardless of the emotion.

WAYS TO OVERCOME ANGER

1. LOOK UP
The fastest way to change negative feelings is by changing our physical position right away. The easiest way to physically change is by moving our eye position. When we are in a negative state, we are likely looking down. Suddenly looking up (into our visual plane) will interrupt the negative patterns of sinking into the quicksand of bad feelings.

2. “WHAT DO YOU WANT?”
Sit down and write down exactly what it is that you want out of the current situation. Your job is to describe the end result you would like to see. Be clear, realistic and fair. Be specific with your description. Including dates of when you would like to see the results.

3.MEDITATION
Meditation is training for the mind to calm the noise in our mental space, to lower our though count, to draw out inner wisdom and mostly it helps us to recognize and remain anchored in our divine state.

4. BREATHING  EXERCISE
When you are in angry  mood , Close your eyes ,  close one nose with your finger ,  slowly exhale and slowly inhale practice this  at least 10 times when you are in angry. Repeat this for 5 -10 minutes .

5. LAUGH
Simply to laugh open mouth when you are in angry is a good technique to overcome from the anger.

6. FORGIVENESS
Forgive what others have done to you  , this is the best method to overcome from anger. Unable to forgive someone is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.

7. IDENTIFY AND ELIMINATE YOUR TRIGGER OR PROBLEM
