Zen and the Art of Injury Prevention

Zen and the Art of Injury Prevention

Do not do a difficult physical task if you are looking red.

Research suggests that being angry can increase a person's risk of injury by almost seven times. Nearly 63 percent of people surveyed during an emergency room visit indicated that they felt irritable, angry, or hostile at the time they were injured. Before doing physical work, count to 10, take a deep breath and approach your project calmly to reduce the risk of injury.

More and more research suggests that chronic anger is bad for your health. Although everyone experiences temporary bouts of anger, called "state anger", people who have a permanent hostility or angry attitude, called "symptom anger", include artery aging, high blood pressure May increase the risk of heart attack, stroke and a depressed immune system. Research suggests that state anger increases the risk of injury, especially among men. The study looked at people who went to the emergency room to treat an injury and told their feelings immediately before the injury occurred. The majority were angry at the time of their injuries. Exercising, journaling, taking a deep breath, and getting a frustrated friend out of your frustrations are all great ways to spread angry feelings. If you have a chronic problem in controlling your anger, consider seeing a psychiatrist or counselor to learn ways to reduce hostility and protect yourself from long-term health consequences.
