How Modern Life is Making us ANGRY

How Modern Life is Making us ANGRY | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

 

According to reports in The Telegraph, the energy and drive that originally focused humans on basic survival, such as food and shelter, have become unfocused and secondary in the 21st century.

 

This is because people are largely provided for, leaving the motivations that fuel basic survival without an appropriate outlet.

 

Humans evolved to become angry in certain situations because the emotion motivates us to want things. For example, hunger makes us angry by raising our serotonin levels, prompting us to look for food.

 

Anger also played an important role in helping early humans live together in social groups, by warning individuals when their behaviour was upsetting others.

 

'The red mist of rage helped our ancestors survive,' Dr Mann claimed

Researchers from Concordia University discovered anger can exacerbate symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), a condition that affects millions of individuals.

Shaan White's curator insight, October 6, 9:59 AM

In therapy we often like to complicate things. When we refer to the chart of emotions it becomes clear why anger and anxiety are intertwined. In fact not just anger, any negative state can affect anxiety and compound the experience of the sufferer. The solution to being anxiety free is having a clear simple approach of letting go of the destructive feelings and emotions and training our minds to focus on the solution (Goal) that we want.
