Being Angry All The Time Actually Makes You Gain Weight
Angry people, we all hate them but in some situations, we do become them. Someone takes the last parking space or someone eats the last slice of pizza that you were saving can lead to you getting enraged but did you ever stop to think how does this affect you?
For a very long time, we have believed that anger is only seen as screaming and shouting but now science has shown us that there are many different types of anger one can experience. But, the two by-products of anger remain the same, stress and anxiety. A new by-product we have come to know about is weight gain.
1Anger isn’t what you think
When you hear the word ‘anger’ you will naturally think of someone screaming or being in an aggressively bad mood. But the truth of the matter is that anger isn’t just that. There is more to it than we know. When people get angry about something they can fall into one of three categories.
This is when people get angry but bottle it up inside and never show it because they are not the confrontational types. You will notice this when the person who is angry stays silent and does not vent their frustrations. This often comes from a need to be in control and not let things go out of hand.
This is when people who are angry lash out at others and do not mind getting physical with them. Anger and rage control their minds and they can be physically or verbally aggressive. These people can harm others or themselves with rash impulsive decisions. The arguments these people have are never quiet.s
People who are in control of their emotions are the ones who demonstrate this type of anger. These are the people who stay in control even when angry. Normally the filter between the brain and mouth shuts off for the general public when they are angry. But, these people listen and think twice before saying anything so as not to further the argument.
5But, how can anger affect our weight?
Anger is something that we have to learn to control and when we do not it takes over our body and mind in destructive ways. For a long time, we believed that anger mostly leads to a dent in friendships or an argument with the family. But the truth is that anger has many side effects one of which is weight gain.
