and reduce stress levels. This may be because physical exertion burns up stress chemicals, and it also boosts production of mood-regulating neurotransmitters in the brain, including endorphins and catecholamines.

The surprising benefits of anger

As stated earlier,Anger has benefits when channelled rightly,some benefits are:
  • Anger can be motivating: Anger has the potential to provide you with the energy that may be necessary to take proactive steps toward important goals or to rectify difficult or unjust situations. 
  • Angry people are more optimistic: This finding may seem particularly surprising, since many of us tend to view angry people in generally negative terms,but it's the fact.
  • Anger can help relationships: Generally speaking, many of us tend to think of anger as being “bad” in the context of a harmonious relationship . This can be true if the anger is used carelessly, harmfully, or is mismanaged. On the other hand, when anger is actually justified and is proactively directed toward finding and implementing a solution, it is quite helpful to the future of a relationship. 
  • Anger provides insight into yourself: If you take the time to mindfully slow yourself down in the moment and reflect on your emotional experience of anger, there is great potential for increasing self-awareness in meaningful ways. 
  • Anger can reduce violence: While anger is certainly often experienced immediately prior to violent acts, it can also be a tool to reduce violence because anger serves as an incredibly powerful social signal that something needs to be resolved . 
  • Anger can be a negotiation strategy: Anger can be expressed in justified and respectful ways, just as it has the potential to be expressed in unjustified or manipulative ways. The fact remains that anger can be used as a powerful negotiation tool to get what you want out of a person or situation.
