The following are a few ways in which anger can affect you:
Anger affects your physical health
When you get angry, your stress levels get elevated which certainly is detrimental for your health. Excess stress and tension can put you at a higher risk of getting diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, insomnia, high blood pressure etc.
Anger affects your neurological health.
Chronic anger devours on your mental energy excessively and blurs your judgment. This consequently leads you to making the wrong choices as in a state of anger you tend to take action without thinking anything through. On the note of anger being harmful for your mental health, it has shown to cause depression, migraines, strokes and other mental conditions.
Anger can also disturb your career.
Venting out your anger on your co-workers, clients, colleagues will wreak havoc on your work life and your reputation. Instead of simply losing it try finding ways to express your anger through healthier outlets.
Anger can mess up your relationships and social life.
Lashing out on your loved ones truly does hurt their emotions and can weaken your relationships over time. Moreover, if you are an individual who is short-tempered then people would probably avoid spending too much time with you and would also find it hard to open up to you.
