An intense burst of rage can feel more like an attack, especially when it is projected at the wrong person. You’ll be chatting about lunch and all of a sudden a person will snap at you for not passing them the ketchup. While it’s common to experience moments of irritation, or even annoyance at others, it can seem quite unreasonable to get mad at them for no reason. It’s actually rude and mean to project someone to a burst of anger without being able to calmly explain to them why.

If you’re finding that all you want to do is scream into a pillow or punch a wall but can’t figure out why, you’re not necessarily a bad person, but you might be overlooking a rather obvious reason.

Your Body Is Trying To Communicate With You

​Anger is often a side effect of something else happening in your body. It’s like its own language trying to communicate with you through urgency and intensity to alert you that something is going wrong.

Often anger will come hand in hand with anxiety to tell you that something feels off. Even if this emotion is not desired, you should pay attention to it and figure out what it wants. Often the physical body is way ahead of the mind.

You Were Accidentally Triggered

But you’re thinking you were fine just five minutes ago so why is your body choosing to address this issue now, in the middle of your lunch? Well, you may not have realized it, but usually, something triggers your anger, even if it’s on a subconscious level. It’s interesting thinking about how our five senses trigger feelings, memories, and thoughts. You could have smelled a certain aroma or touched a certain texture that brought on that feeling of rage.

You have a few options here, you can either take the time to figure out what you could have sensed in the moment before you got upset, or you ca walk away to reset your environment.

You’re Just Hoping It’ll Go Away

Let say you chose to stay, then you can’t then repress what it is you’re feeling, and hope it will go away. You’re either not speaking your mind or not letting your mind speak itself which will only release more anger. The more you push such an intense feeling back, the more you take away the opportunity to hear out what it’s trying to communicate and use that information to feel better.

You need to communicate either with yourself or talk it out with someone else. Once you give words to your feelings or thoughts, you release the anger and figure out what it is that you actually need.

One way to decide whether to address your feelings or simply give yourself time and space if your level of discomfort. Usually, the more uncomfortable you feel, the more drastic the reason behind your anger might be.

One way to figure it out is with the HALT trick, an acronym to check-in yourself by asking “Hungry? Angry? Lonely? Tired?” This will often reveal the reason why you’re feeling so uncomfortable and finally allow you to do something about it.

It’s Likely That You’re Just Hungry!

This might actually be the simple answer! It’s not always the case but low blood sugar can actually make you see red. The lack of fuel will make you irritable. This is why they came up with the word “hangry” to sum up “hungry” and “angry” in one state of being.

We often overlook this lack of food because we think that we need to prioritize our chores or a meeting. The reality is if we don’t stop taking the time to take care of ourselves and nurture our bodies, we will actually hurt ourselves more than we will benefit.
