Warning Signs for Anger Management

It is often hard to tell when we need to take action against our potentially angry feelings and impulsivity.  Anger can have extremely damaging effects on our relationships with others and many people say their “bad” behavior happened so fast that they don’t even remember doing or saying what they did until it was too late.  Below is a list of common “Warning Signs” that might help in better recognizing when an explosive episode is nearing.

· Raising voice to an usual level

· Feeling out of control with their temper

· Feeling so much negativity that have difficulty focusing on your thoughts

· Things getting out of hand quickly during discussion

· Inability to think straight when starting to feel hostile

· Thinking to yourself “why can’t I talk more logically?”

· Feel like running during your fights

· Small issues suddenly becoming big ones

· Inability to calm self down during the argument

· Heart racing

If you are experiencing any of the above, this might be a good time to take a look at how to improve your coping skills for anger and stress.  Taking an anger management class may be one effective approach for learning new tools for improving your skills in better controlling one of life’s most difficult emotions, anger.
