If you’re struggling with out-of-control anger, you may be wondering why your fuse is so short. Anger problems often stem from what you’ve learned as a child. If you watched others in your family scream, hit each other, or throw things, you might think this is how anger is supposed to be expressed. Traumatic events and high levels of stress can make you more susceptible to anger as well.

Anger is often a cover-up for other feelings

In order to get your needs met and express your anger in appropriate ways, you need to be in touch with what you are really feeling. Are you truly angry? Or is your anger masking other feelings such as embarrassment, insecurity, hurt, shame, or vulnerability?

If your knee-jerk response in many situations is anger, it is very likely that your temper is covering up your true feelings and needs. This is especially likely if you grew up in a family where expressing feelings was strongly discouraged. As an adult, you may have a hard time acknowledging feelings other than anger.

Clues that there’s something more to your anger

  • You have a hard time compromising. Is it hard for you to understand other people’s points of view, and even harder to concede a point? If you grew up in a family where anger was out of control, you may remember how the angry person got his or her way by being the loudest and most demanding. Compromising might bring up scary feelings of failure and vulnerability.
  • You have trouble expressing emotions other than anger. Do you pride yourself on being tough and in control, never letting your guard down? Do you feel that emotions like fear, guilt, or shame don’t apply to you? Everyone has those emotions, and if you think you don’t, you may be using anger as a cover for them.
  • You view different opinions and viewpoints as a personal challenge to you. Do you believe that your way is always right and get angry when others disagree? If you have a strong need to be in control or a fragile ego, you may interpret other perspectives as a challenge to your authority, rather than simply a different way of looking at things.

If you are uncomfortable with many emotions, disconnected, or stuck on an angry one-note response to everything, it might do you some good to get back in touch with your feelings. Emotional awareness is the key to self-understanding and success in life. Without the ability to recognize, manage, and deal with the full range of human emotions, you’ll inevitably spin into confusion, isolation, and self-doubt.

Some Dynamics of Anger

  • We become more angry when we are stressed and body resources are down.
  • We are rarely ever angry for the reasons we think.
  • We are often angry when we didn't get what we needed as a child.
  • We often become angry when we see a trait in others we can't stand in ourselves.
  • Underneath many current angers are old disappointments, traumas, and triggers.
 
   How to Stay Positive at Work
There’s a reason why it’s called a depressed economy. No one enjoys job insecurity or financial crises. Whether you’re frantic about getting fired, bumming out at your 9-5, or working in a doom-and-gloom atmosphere, make sure you follow this advice to do your best and keep spirits up on the job.
By Leonora Epstein
Become indispensable.
When downsizing poses a threat to your department, passivity can be killer while action is critical. Take this as your opportunity to shine, suggests Adele Sheele, career coach and author of Skills for Success. “In bad times, instead of wallowing, start contributing and see what’s needed,” says Sheele. Organizing task forces, taking on responsibility, and volunteering to head projects shows enthusiasm to your boss (not to mention inspires coworkers to match your gung-ho attitude). A tip from Cathie Black, president of Hearst Magazines: Become more valuable by expanding your skill set to include things that aren’t necessarily part of your job description. Learn new computer programs, or find out what tasks your superiors are responsible for that are unfamiliar to you.

Boost morale.
“In the office, negative talk can lead to a downward spiral, which becomes contagious to others around you,” explains Julie Jansen, a career counselor and author of I Don’t Know What I Want, but I Know It’s Not This. Lifting the cloud over your cube can be as simple as saying, “Hey guys, what can we talk about that’s upbeat?” Something that seems little — telling a story or a joke, or asking about other people — can go a long way and change the feeling in the office for the rest of the day.
Come together.
“In down times, companies tend to put their employees’ noses to the grindstone even more,” says Jansen. “Encourage social activities like pizza parties or happy hours,” she suggests, as a way to combat pressure and encourage fun. But, don’t think that just because there’s an economic crisis you should stop reaching out once it’s over. “One of the things we saw in 9/11 was strangers coming together to help each other. We don’t need disasters to be better people. You should always be trying to do your best,” Sheele warns.

Do damage control before you need to.
Truly worried about the economy having a negative effect on your career? “Now’s not the time to panic or hide from potential insecurities,” advises Jansen. “You should always be networking and have an updated résumé.” In the meantime, think about what you can do to help your boss keep her job. If her position is stable, she’ll be more likely to make sure yours is, too.

The good news. The unemployment rate is still relatively low at 6.1 percent. So while the economy may cause you anxiety, your job is probably safe. Nevertheless, getting your ducks in line, being proactive, and having a plan should make you feel more in control of your professional life and give you some relief. You might even crack a smile. 


Screams at the boss? Snap at a colleague? Throw your cell phone into your  computer monitor? If so, you may find yourself headed to anger-management classes, which have become an all-purpose antidote for fit-throwing celebrities, chair-throwing coaches, vandals, road ragers, delinquent teens, disruptive airline passengers, and obstreperous employees.

Demand for such programs is coming from courts seeking alternatives to jail sentences and companies hoping to avoid lawsuits and office blowups. Aware that high-pressure jobs can make for hot tempers, some professions offer pre-emptive anger management. A few state bar associations now require "civility" training for lawyers renewing their licenses. And as of last year, hospitals must have programs for "disruptive" physicians as a condition of accreditation.

Introducing Anger And stress Management Sessions For Professional And College Athletes
Keeping Your Cool: How To Manage Anger During Competition

    Athletes who can control their anger and stress on the court or field generally perform better. 
    Please call 678-662-7066 for more information   

    As natural competitors, many athletes find it impossible to play their sport without experiencing intense emotion. Consequently, bad calls, dirty plays and poor performance can trigger feelings of  anger. But when you allow yourself to get angry on the court or field, your performance will drop, because you will:

    • Lose focus on the competition
    • Shift attention to retaliation
    • Start negative self-talk and self-criticism
    • Let your form get sloppy
    • Lose confidence

    If you struggle with anger during competition, try one of these coping skills recommended by sport psychologists. You’ll not only have a much better experience on the field, you’ll actually learn to use your emotions to your advantage.

    Hassle Log
    Immediately after a game, write down situations that caused anger throughout. Include thoughts, emotions, reactions, consequences of your choices and a coach’s evaluation of your behavior. Also, use the hassle log to identify what you could have done differently. For example, if you got angry because you were beat to a ball and ended up committing a foul because of it, you may want to concentrate on running back on defense faster next time. By becoming more aware of your actions and emotions during a game, you’ll be able to plan better for the future.

    Cue Words
    Pick a word or phrase to focus on when you feel yourself getting angry. For example, a soccer player might say, "First to the ball," to concentrate on gaining possession of the ball instead of running after an offending opponent. Use cue words in practice so they become second nature in competition. By learning to focus on your next action rather than mistakes, you’ll eliminate many of the dangerous effects of anger.

    Affirmations
    Develop positive self-statements to let go of anger and mistakes. Examples include, "I am a smart player," "I've got a good attitude," "I am calm, cool, and collected" or "I let go of mistakes and focus on the next play."

    Role Play
    At practice or at home, rehearse appropriate responses to anger-provoking situations with a parent, teammate or coach. Although it may feel silly, research shows that role playing through positive responses can be an effective way to program the right response for competition.

    Visualization
    Use imagery to visualize yourself in situations that make you angry; then watch yourself successfully handle them. Be sure to visualize feeling relaxed and in control. Visualization is a great technique to try right before a game to get your mind in the right place.

    Deep Breathing
    Every time you start feeling angry, take three deep breaths to allow your emotions to simmer down. For a powerful combination, use this physical technique at the same time as you try one of the mental tricks outlined above.
