How To Be productive when you are exploding with anger

How do you stay productive when you are exploding with anger just trying to hide it and not thinking about it but you simply can’t? Unquestionably, we all have been there at least once for as long as we can remember.

We live in times full of anger, and we can see how tensions sneak into our personal lives every day, fomenting hostilities between friends, family, and even strangers, harming our emotional wellbeing.

But, what if I told you that anger is nothing more than a powerful weapon that you can sharpen every day until it leads you to achieve unimaginable things?

What Is Anger?

Accurately speaking, anger is an adaptive response to a threat. It is what makes us focus on potential danger and respond to it, either by fighting or fleeing. Anger increases as anxiety grows and causes us to have the courage to correct what is wrong.

For me, anger is my fuel. My burning, unending passion. I refuse to hide it. I embrace it. I consume it. I show it. We all experience those feelings and emotions that arise from pure rage. I simply use it to source my inspiration and my desire to be great. Without anger, I would have no reason to want to prove people wrong about me.

Anger is what pushes me.

I let it thrive in my work and use it to push me.

How Does Anger Act Upon Us?

Anger appears after feeling a lot of anxiety as a way to generate a control response to terminate, in one way or another, with such an unpleasant sensation. It is a way for our mind to relieve the anguish before the uncertainty, holding on to the control of the situation.

Anger drives us, motivates us, gives us purpose. It has the ability to give us the clarity we need on a daily basis. It is normal to have it, we all feel it. However, it can be very detrimental if we do not know how to use it in our favor.

Consequences Of Holding Excessive Or Misplaced Anger

Retaining too much anger or holding on to it for too long is detrimental to both physical and mental health. In fact:

  • It is capable of wearing down our physical and emotional resources and is linked to an increase in blood pressure and the possibility of developing inflammatory conditions, infection, heart disease, stroke and even cancer.
  • It can disrupt the emotional part of our brain, which is connected to the emotional area, thus impairing the cognitive and decision-making process.
  • It can also compromise our ability to understand the perspective of others. An angry individual judges others’ opinions harder, because they become less empathetic and generous.
  • Our perspectives narrow, preventing us from thinking strategically and broadly.

So, What Do We Do With Our Anger?

We must have total control of our life and our emotions. It is our responsibility to always try to manage them the best we can. How we feel should not depend on any situation or anyone else, but only on us. Nothing can depress me more than me. Nothing gets me excited and increases my anger, except myself.

Anger is inevitable, but we must decide what to do with it. Otherwise, it will destroy us. First, evaluate whether anger is useful to you. If so, I invite you to learn to control it and make the most of it. If not, put it aside.

The Importance Of Channeling Anger And What This Allows You To Achieve

If you decide to use your anger, you should find a means to help you manage it. Anger is a very energizing emotion. It can help you see things with amazing clarity and attack problems right away, increasing your productivity to mind-blowing levels. Use it to become the best version of yourself.

I use it to control my future and my destiny. I do not let my anger control me. Instead, I choose to be the driver of this vehicle we call body and the sensations I feel. And I use it to take me to the next level in life.

In a moment of pure rage and anger, I feel completely cool and calm. I have learned to redirect my energy when I get angry. Recently, I started studying Taekwondo. It teaches me how to control my anger more and how to release it in every punch and kick, in almost a second, and then become docile again.

My anger is becoming a weapon I didn’t even know I could master on a daily basis. And honestly, that’s the best way I can stay focused and productive when I’m angry.

How to Avoid Being Consumed by Anger

If unlike in my case, anger is not useful to you, the best thing to do is to work on discarding it. If it develops when anxiety increases, you can work on lowering your anxiety levels to prevent it. To do this, you can try the following every time you have an argument or something doesn’t go your way:

  • Do your favorite exercise or sport
  • Practice meditation, breathing techniques, or yoga. Personally, breathing only through the nose, without using the mouth, has been extremely helpful in lowering anger and anxiety.
  • Say a prayer
  • Put in your home, your office, or that space where you feel comfortable, sticky notes or pictures with positive phrases to cut your negative thoughts.
  • See the story from the opposite side. You are not the only one suffering from stress, anger, or anguish, certainly not the only one who has ever taken it out on the wrong person or in the worst way. If we consider this as the cause of that other person’s behavior and understand it, we will be able to shape anger through empathy.
