Coping With Anger & Stress: When to Get Help

Stress and anger often go hand in hand. For many of us, financial issues are the greatest cause of stress. Am I going to have enough hours this month? What if I get sick? The pressure to make enough to have a place to live and cover all the bills can wear us down, adding additional tension to already overwhelmed lives .  It is during these times of stress and emotional strife, that we are the most prone to a dangerous level of anger. We might begin, on an unconscious level, to look for any reason to yell, or start a fight, in order to relieve some of the pressure. The more stressed you become, the more the smallest things can set you off.  You know, common everyday things like someone changing lanes without signaling,or  maybe your spouse or child hasn't taken out that trash yet. Whatever the case, it is up to us to be aware and recognize when we feel ourselves starting down overload road and getting angry about things that normally wouldn't matter. It is up to us to be responsible, and to look for appropriate ways of releasing our stress and anger before it harms ourselves or loved ones. 


There are many different ways to calm down and relax. If any of these symptoms of system overload sounds like you or someone you love, I encourage you to find what works for you, or your loved one to de-stress and reclaim  a calmer quality of life.
