Everyone gets angry once in a while.

All sorts of situations and events can cause anger. These can include:
Anger is made up of three separate components. Psychological anger is the emotional experience of being angry- feeling frustrated, agitated or even enraged. Biological anger refers to the changes in your body which occur when in a heightened state of stress or anger. These can include increased heart rate, tensing of muscles and raised blood pressure. Finally cognitive anger refers to the thought processes which follow from feeling anger, such as recalling other instances where a specific person has made you angry, or attempts to rationalise your feelings of anger.
These three components work together to produce experiences of anger which can easily escalate out of control.
Constantly high levels of stress and anger can put strain on the important relationships in your life and reduce your ability to cope with the pressures of your work and home life. Anger also produces raised blood pressure can lead to health complications including anxiety disorder and insomnia.
Spotting excessive anger in yourself can often be difficult as you usually feel totally justified in your angry reaction during the moment. If you frequently find yourself regretting angry outbursts or wondering why you reacted in such a way, you may need help with anger management. Likewise if those around you are trying to tell you that your anger is becoming a problem, it is a good idea to listen.
Stressful circumstances can always produce anger, and while some negative emotional reaction to adversity is unavoidable, letting your anger get the best of you is unacceptable in any situation. Anger that that results in abusive or violent behaviour or makes you a threat to yourself and those around you needs to be controlled.
