Anger can be an extremely damaging emotion, unless you learn how to deal with it. Angry hostile feelings can lead to heart disease, stomach problems, headaches, emotional problems and possibly cancer.
Anger is a normal emotion that we all feel from time to time. Some people express anger openly in a calm reasonable way, others explode with anger, and scream and yell. But other people keep their anger inside, they can not or will not express it, this is called repressing anger.
Repressing anger was more dangerous to a person's health than expressing it. When a person is angry, the brain releases the same hormones that are produced during tense, stressful situations. These hormones are epinephrine and norepinephrine. They speed the heart rate, raise blood pressure, or sugar into the blood and narrow the blood vessels to the intestines. In general, the person feels excited and ready to act.
I once saw the picture of Lihong Zhi on the newspaper. He said he didn't appear on the stage unless the situation is serious. On the picture I found he felt very angry and depressed. So I have a good way to deal with anger to him. Find humor in the situation that has made you angry, laughter is much healthier than anger.
