Anger doesn’t come from nowhere- it grows over time, and the more you suppress it the stronger and more explosive it becomes. You may not even realise you’re feeling angry, but there are signs in your body and behaviour that can give you some helpful clues.
Acting differently can show anger is growing. This can show itself in ways like raising your voice, feeling more argumentative, or in the opposite way of getting quieter and avoiding those around you.
Everyone shows their anger in different ways. Using an ‘anger thermometer’ is a useful exercise to identify how your anger manifests itself.
