Controlling your anger has a lot of benefits at personal and professional level. Not only will it help you think more clearly and calmly but be better at communicating with other, which may prevent one from resorting to physical violence.
Some can have intermittent explosive anger issues and may continue yelling about the mishap. They might even break other things. The worst scenario is if someone else spilled the milk or broke the dish, then the anger is directed toward them and can result in violence.
If one doesn't learn to control their anger then it can lead to serious issues, such as:
* Physical aggressiveness such as hitting or pushing others
* Damaging property
* You have been told that you need help more than once
* Road rage
* You have gotten in trouble at school or work for your anger outbursts
* Verbal abuse
* You break things, slam doors, throw things, hit walls
* You scream and yell
* Racing thoughts
* You feel overwhelmed
* You have thoughts of hurting yourself or someone else
* You have lost friends or loved ones over your angry outbursts
* You get physical symptoms such as chest pain, headaches, high blood pressure, heart palpitations, tingling anywhere in the body, dizziness, fatigue, or pressure in the head or sinuses
Fortunately there are ways to learn to control one's anger, it can range from helpful tips to try out to taking classes like martial arts that teach you self control to even anger management therapy.
Getting angry never leads to making the right decision. Benefits include being a trusted leader among your peers & leadership in a business. No one wants to work with someone that loses control often and bosses won't look to promote you if you constantly get angry.
Plus getting angry makes you stress more and no one wants to have added stress.
Benefits will come after you control your anger through other avenues and recognizing your anger before it gets out of control will help you grow as a person and professionally.
