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:
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.
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.
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.
