Happy Fall! To help keep you inspired through this crisper weather, here’s my latest for Psychology Today. Hope you like it! It’s about lightening our loads and freeing our minds, and who doesn’t need more of that!?
We all know the situation: something happened that made us upset, we go over it in our mind, we blow our top, we say things we regret, we exhaust ourselves and, ultimately, we usually end up regretting something: what we said or did (or what we didn’t say!).
Anger, of course, has its place. after all, as researchers have found, it alerts you to the fact that something may be wrong and can help motivate you to take action in the face of unfairness. However, it also takes its toll. In many ways, it looks like a heightened stress response. It increases our blood pressure and heart rate and cellular inflammatory processes and – when it happens too frequently – leads to increased chances of heart disease. Not to mention that it just makes us mad and ruins our day – or even weeks and months if you harbor resentment for a long time.
So how can we reap the benefits of anger while not succumbing to its dangers? Read on at Psychology Today.
