Anger is just an emotion. On its own it is neither good nor bad. However, what we do (or don't do) with our anger can be detrimental to our physical health, emotional state, relationships, and overall functioning.

  • Mismanagement of anger is linked to health problems such as:

- High blood pressure

  • Mismanagement of anger can also be the cause of:
