How Unchecked Rage Damages The Brain and Body- 5 things you should note
To live a healthy life the consumption of a balanced diet is required, the intake of water in large volume should be made a habit, and partaking regularly in physical fitness programs should go along with your day.
With all protocols observed it’s rather odd that people still come down with chronic syndromes and diseases outside the characterization of a definite cure, it becomes something to marvel at as our daily activities become a stake in the heart, outside the light of smoking and excessive intake of fatty products a much more neglected scope of human existence has begun posing a threat to the human well being.
It goes without a saying that to be emotional is to be human, the persisting need to express emotions is what makes us feel alive. A popular belief likens emotions to something intertwined with the heart but studies refute such and construe it to being something of dealings with the entire body as the much effect it has on the heart, as pseudo-knowledge put it, it also has on the brain and body likewise.
Hostile attitudes and feelings characterized by rage can create chronic stress, which upsets the body hormone balance, exhaust the brain chemicals required for ecstasy, and damage the overall structure of the immune system.
Aside from that when anger becomes a prominent trait the chances of making poor decisions are increased and the counter effect might not be a one-party result but a congregational enigma.
Some of the damages incurred from an unchecked outburst of negative emotions.
1. Susceptible to heart attack or stroke:
When enraged it takes only a few minutes before our volition goes offline, most actions become less voluntary. That way the body is ready to minimize external damage and give feedback offensively and for that to happen the heart would be strained increasing its beat per second, blood pressure would rise and the risk of having a heart attack, seizure, or stroke becomes high.
A study shows that people habitually angry were twice at risk of coronary diseases than their less angry counter paths.
Dr. Chris Aiken, MD, an instructor in clinical psychiatry said;
“In the two hours after an angry outburst the chances of having a heart attack doubles.”
The risk of blood clotting in the brain cannot be overstressed, study shows that there are a 3 times higher risk of having a stroke from a blood clot in the brain during the two hours after an angry outburst.
2. Weakens the Immune system:
We exhaust the body every minute we advance in rage, this weakens the immune system and enhances the risk of experiencing frequent infections, for someone with health complications the likes of diabetes may be left with more devastating effects because of an already compromised immune system.
Research carried out proves that anger causes a six-hour dip in levels of the antibody Immunoglobulin A, the cell’s first line of defense.
3. It can have effects on the lungs.
Even without indulging in the act of smoking, you can still hurt your lungs if you are a person always angry by default.
When enraged, for the benefit of all actions to be carried out the lungs would be stretched because everyone becomes a hard breather when annoyed.
This can significantly worsen your lungs capacity, create inflammation in the airways and eventually increase your risk of respiratory problems.
4.It can cause extreme anxiety and increase depression.
No one likes a violent individual, no one fancy’s a person harbouring violent tendencies. As we all know, unchecked anger always escalates to violence, and such obliterates any and all ties that bind. Away from that, a study published in the journal cognitive behaviour therapy found that anger can exacerbate symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), a condition composed of excessive uncontrollable worry that interferes with a person’s daily life.
Similarly if you, for the love of your un opposable relationship, begin to repress rage, the lingering negativity inside of you would likely impel you to ponder on why? and why not, with one thing leading to another you find yourself emotionally depressed lacking the will to voice anything out.
5. Anger shortens your life span.
Stress is tightly linked to general health,
“Stress and anger shorten life span,” says Dr. Fristad.
A study done over a 17 year period found out that couples who restrain their outburst don’t tend to live longer compared to those who readily confess their displeasure with or without excessive use of violence.
