Even tempered that is! In case you haven’t been out of your house in the last 10 years, it is an increasingly angry society that we live in. That is one of the primary reasons I live in a small town. People are a little more laid back and things like road rage are really non existent.

Now anger is being talked about as a risk factor for heart disease. Makes sense to me. If you’ve ever noticed someone who is raging, the look as though they are about to blow a gasket, which is actually not a bad non medical definition for a heart attack.

The studies conclude that men with high anger traits are almost twice as likely to develop hypertension and nearly 50% more likely to develop coronary artery disease. These aren’t subtle differences. Angry people would appear to be on track to kills themselves via their own ability to let things slide.

Bottom line. Take a chill pill. Take time out to let the steam off slowly by relaxing. Before blowing up, take time to consider the situation and its’ true weight in your life and on the world. Ability to let go of anger will help you live a much happier and healthier life, and if you can reduce the risk of hypertension and heart attacks, it’s something of a no brainer to understand that you should be able to get better life insurance rates.
