Anger is one type of emotion that arises as a result of a conflict or disturbance, causing feelings of irritation, disappointment, frustration, or hurt. You can get angry at certain people, events or traumatic events, and get angry at personal issues. According to the National Health Service, anger, like any other emotion, can cause physical
and psychological changes, including: Your heart rate becomes faster, your chest feels tight, your body heats up, your muscles tense up, and you make fists. Easily offended, humiliated, resentful, or even cry out of anger. Yelling, starting a fight, breaking or throwing things, and ignoring someone. When you are angry, the possibility of various physical symptoms you cannot avoid. However, certain actions, such as slamming things
in anger or starting a fight, can be avoided. Well, you can do this by applying anger management. Anger management is learning to recognize the signs in yourself when you are angry and take “healthy” actions in expressing anger. In simple terms, you can mean that anger management is controlling anger, not preventing or suppressing anger.

When you are angry, your body will naturally respond to that emotion aggressively. This is a form of resistance and self-defense. However, remember to stay away from aggressive actions in the form of physical violence, because it can harm others and harm yourself. If that happens, you will definitely regret what you did. Feelings of regret can make you hate yourself and in the end can have bad effects on your health, such as increasing the risk of depression, high blood pressure (hypertension), and heart disease.

People who harbor anger and become passive-aggressive people will find it difficult to establish good relationships. All of these things make you really need to apply anger management in dealing with every problem that triggers anger.
