How Anger Problems Can Affect Your Health – Pt. 2

angry lioness
In our last post, we discussed three ways that uncontrolled anger can impact your overall health, both physically and mentally. Unfortunately, those aren’t the only ways that anger can severely mess with your health. Here are two more things that untreated anger can do to your mind and body:
Breathing Problems
The Harvard School of Public Health performed a study on hostility in men and recorded that men with higher rates of anger exhibited breathing problems. Not only that, but their pulmonary functions also declined more rapidly as they aged than their non-hostile counterparts.
Developmental Problems
Anger management is potentially more important to early childhood development. Children and adolescents with poor anger management skills have issues developing healthy interpersonal relationships. They are also at a much greater risk for mental and general health problems as they get older. It is essential for children to learn to cope with anger early on in life so that they do not suffer as adults.
Seeking Treatment
Unchecked anger can wreak havoc on your life and the lives of those around you. Seeking treatment can help you learn to cope with anger in healthy ways so that you can turn your life around.
If you have been ordered by a judge to take anger management classes, consider taking court-ordered courses online from AIC. American Integrity Courses. We offer affordable courses that you can take on your own time. Learn more and enroll in a course today at

How Anger Problems Can Affect Your Health – Pt. 1

Anger is insidious, seeping into your life in ways you aren’t even aware of. If you deal with anger management problems, it can affect your overall health in a big way. While anger can be healthy when we deal with it appropriately, unchecked anger can have a negative impact on your health.
Stress can make you more prone to anger, which can make it more difficult to cope with. Your emotions can escalate quickly, and trigger a fight or flight response. Also, anger and stress can feed each other, creating an endless loop of anger and stress.
Major Causes of Death
Just like stress, uncontrolled anger is linked to major cased of death like heart problems and depression. If you fail to seek treatment for your anger management problems, it can shorten your life and can severely affect your mental health.
A study from Ohio State University revealed that test subjects who could not control their anger were likely to heal from wounds more slowly. The subjects also had higher levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, in their bodies during testing, which suggested that they were more stressed out during the experiment that the subjects who could manage their anger.
Many people who deal with anger are ordered by a judge to take anger management classes. AIC. American Integrity Courses enables you to take online anger management courses at an affordable price. Learn more at

Demonstrating Your Willingness to Change

Drug use and alcoholism ruins the lives of your loved ones. Even if your spouse or partner chooses not to leave, you simply owe it to your family to do better. By taking the initiative to prove your willingness to change, you’ll have a happier future to look forward to.
Enroll in Classes
Completing an online drug and alcohol course will show your commitment to making a change - and since you can take the classes online, you won’t have to worry about missing work or rearranging your schedule. By the end of the course, you’ll have a personalized certificate of completion to prove you’re taking the steps to get better.
Sign Up for Therapy
Therapists who specialize in addiction recovery can often help people set empowering short-term goals as they work to overcome their addiction. Your loved one may prove more forgiving when she hears you’ve been attending sessions to save your relationship.
Evaluate Your Inner Circle
If you have friends or other family members who partake in drugs and alcohol, the pressure to join can be troubling. However, if your friends never called you out when your behavior became dangerous (or even pushed you to use more), they are likely contributing to your addiction. Real friends will support your decision to create a healthy, productive and sober lifestyle - even if it isn’t a choice they are ready to make for themselves right now.

Children and Domestic Violence

Domestic violence does not only affect the partner being abused; it can also pose serious effects on any children living in the home. As you already know, exposure to domestic violence poses a serious threat to a child’s psychological and physical well-being. Whether a child is exposed to the act of domestic violence through physical abuse or by observation, they can become emotionally traumatized – and eventually, desensitized to the abuse.
Research has proven that many perpetrators of domestic abuse have either been abused as children or witnessed abuse at home. While domestic violence can affect children in different ways, the exposure is typically traumatic.
Domestic violence can have the following effects on a child:

·         Constant fear and anxiety
·         Nightmares and sleeplessness
·         Aggression
·         Difficulty concentrating
·         Depression
·         PTSD
Both long and short-term effects of domestic violence can be prevented when there is intervention from resources such as social workers and educational programs. However, these resources will be less than helpful if the violence continues. Domestic abuse counseling or anger management courses will be required for the perpetrator. To lead you and your child on the right path to a healthy, fulfilled life, learn more about our online anger management course today at

Recognizing the Signs of Domestic Violence

domestic violence
Domestic violence is not always “in your face.” Whenever you hear of a woman who was killed or severely injured by an abusive partner, you probably ask, “Why didn’t she just leave?” The answer isn’t that simple. If you think you may be in an abusive relationship, here are some identifiable characteristics you can use:
Your Behavior
The first question you need to ask is if you are afraid of your partner. No healthy relationship involves fear. If you walk on eggshells to avoid provoking them, then that is a clear sign that your relationship is abusive. If you feel like you can’t do anything right in their eyes, if you feel numb and helpless, or if you are starting to wonder if maybe you’re crazy and making the whole thing up, you are most likely being abused.
Their Behavior
If your partner is abusive, they will fall into a few familiar behavioral patterns. Do they go out of their way to humiliate or criticize you? Do they ignore or belittle your accomplishments or opinions? Do they blame you for the way they treat you? These are all signs of an abusive partner. They may also:
·         Have an unpredictable temper.
·         Hurt you, or threaten to hurt you.
·         Threaten to hurt themselves if you leave.
·         Destroy your belongings.
·         Act excessively jealous or possessive.
·         Control where you go or what you do.
·         Check up on you constantly.
·         Isolate you from your friends and family.
Abuse is not always physical. Some abusers rely on psychological abuse to torment their victims. Know the signs, and know when to get out. If you can talk to a family member or close friend about what is happening, they can arrange to get you out while your partner is not home.
AIC. American Integrity Courses offers a court-ordered domestic violence online course for abusers who need to end their abusive behavior. Contact us today at to get started and break the cycle of abuse.
