Do you often get angry during summers? Well, there is an explanation. A study conducted in Poland has found a link between hot weather and stress levels.
The team has discovered that the stress hormone – cortisol rises with the rising temperature and it is lower in the winters. Cortisol plays an important role as it helps the body to regulate sugar, salt and fluids. The hormone is also responsible to control emotions such as mood, motivation and fear.
Anger is a very strong emotion, which can affect a person’s physical and mental health in various ways. Here are some of the tips that will help you control your anger:
Recognize and Retreat
When you’re up against something that brings out your anger or explodes your senses, it is better to step away from it as long as you can. Take some time off of things to relax and calm down.
Emotions: Understand them
Some emotions lead to an angry outburst such as frustration, hurt and fear. Learn to balance your emotions to get to the root of the problem. Be honest with yourself and your feelings, admit to it if it’s your fault, otherwise find a solution to avoid future outbursts.
To control anger, you need to relax your mind and body. Yoga, meditation and other techniques can help you calm the anger and bring your sense back to normal.
Believe it or not, chocolate can be a quick-fix when it comes to controlling anger. Eating your favourite food could also help you get out of a bad mood. Chamomile tea is another great source to alleviate stress and anxiety.
A Healthy Lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle is the most important part of a healthy mood and body. An exercise routine contributes towards inhibiting your body’s natural tendency toward anger. If your body is not in good condition then it can make you feel sick and irritable. Sleep is the next most important thing when it comes to a healthy lifestyle – a good 6-8 hour of sleep is necessary for maintaining good health.
If things are still not working out, seek help. Do not ignore anger issues or fluctuations in mood, you may develop a serious mental health issue later in life.
