Anger: Nature, Expression, Management

Anger can make you feel as though you’re at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. Learn how to control it.


Dr. Santhosh Dadhambe, CMO, Vijaybhoomi University


What is anger?

Anger is “an emotional state that varies in intensity from mild irritation to intense fury and rage,” according to Charles Spielberger, PhD, a psychologist who specialises in the study of anger. Like other emotions, it is accompanied by physiological and biological changes; when you get angry, your heart rate and blood pressure go up, as do the levels of your energy hormones, adrenaline, and noradrenaline.

Expressing anger

The instinctive, natural way to express anger is to respond aggressively. Anger is a natural, adaptive response to threats; it inspires powerful, often aggressive, feelings and behaviors, which allow us to fight and to defend ourselves when we are attacked. A certain amount of anger, therefore, is necessary to our survival.

Following are some of the Steps to Identify Anger cause, expression and effective management:

  1. Count down: Count down (or up) to 10. If you’re really mad, start at 100. In the time it takes you to count, your heart rate will slow, and your anger will likely subside.
  2. Take a breather: Your breathing becomes shallower and speeds up as you grow angry. Reverse that trend (and your anger) by taking slow, deep breaths from your nose and exhaling out of your mouth for several moments.
  3. Go walk around: Exercise Trusted Source can help calm your nerves and reduce anger. Go for a walk, ride your bike, or hit a few golf balls. Anything that gets your limbs pumping is good for your mind and body.
  4. Relax your muscles: Progressive muscle relaxation calls on you to tense and slowly relax various muscle groups in your body, one at a time. As you tense and release, take slow, deliberate breaths.
  5. Repeat a mantra: Find a word or phrase that helps you calm down and refocus. Repeat that word again and again to yourself when you’re upset. “Relax,” “Take it easy, and “You’ll be OK” are all good examples.
  6. Stretch: Neck rolls and shoulder rolls are good examples of nonstrenuous yoga-like movements that can help you control your body and harness your emotions. No fancy equipment required.

Vijaybhoomi University is a very young university that aims to bring a revolution to the education landscape of India. So it logically follows, that the second convocation for the students of Vijaybhoomi University is a momentous occasion for both the students, the faculty and everyone else involved.

The significance of this convocation lies in the fact that it signifies the advancement and development of a new university since its establishment. The relentless efforts of the students, faculty, and staff to establish a supportive and forward-thinking educational atmosphere are acknowledged, and this convocation serves as proof of their dedication.

This convocation saw many tearful farewells and promises to meet later in life, promises to keep in touch and many more conversations of a similar nature. As the students left their college life behind, they reflected at the kind of life they led, and how it was going to change in the future.

Kanyathon: #RUNFORHER

Sagar Urs G, MBA, JAGSoM

I would like to start with a quote which goes by "Women are the real architects of society" and in order to help the poor girl child to receive education, we have Kanyathon2023 whose mission is to educate and empower the girl child.

We, MBA students of JAGSOM, VU went on a sales drive to several malls and places across Navi Mumbai to spread the word regarding Kanyathon 2023 which is set to happen on 12th March 2023 in Shiv tirth, posari, near karjat. Our objective was to encourage people to participate in the charity run by selling the passes for the event and to spread awareness amongst the people who weren't aware of the event. We divided ourselves into a group of 2 and 3 to achieve the objectives set.


It was a collective effort of me and my colleague Kanhiya Agarwal where we managed to pitch in about Kanyathon to various visitors in the mall and we collectively got a donation of INR 1100 by which we can say that we were positively moving towards achieving our objective. I had to make changes to my behavior as I don't normally initiate conversations with people and I am quite reserved, which I needed to change in order to spread the word regarding Kanyathon and to sell the passes to the visitors present at the mall.I believe we successfully met our objectives because collectively as a team, we were able to sell many passes, get donations and were able to spread the awareness about Kanyathon2023.


The challenges I faced were starting the conversation with strangers, making them listen to us and convincing them to participate for kanyathon2023 by buying the passes and if possible to donate for the cause. I had a certain mindset in place that if I didn't do, then I wouldn't learn anything, so despite my shortcomings, I approached people, pitched the motto of Kanyathon and convinced the visitors to participate in the cause. I essentially got an idea about how selling and negotiation is done, that is how to pitch-in and in the case of kanyathon, how to convince them to buy the passes or atleast get the donation for the cause.


I would definitely keep the learning in mind and would apply it wherever the situation demands.To conclude, it was indeed a great experience for me and my colleagues.


  Student Quotes    


“During the sales drive, I learned sales techniques, how to effectively communicate with potential customers, and how to close a sale. This hands-on experience helped to develop skills such as active listening, persuasion, and negotiation. I interacted with customers, gaining firsthand knowledge of their needs and preferences. This experience taught me the significance of customer-centricity”

Shritika Dubey, Vijaybhoomi School of Law

Definitely very few of us enjoy doing courses which do not sound that interesting but actually indulging in those courses are going to be literally fun. Selling, we all know, is not everyone’s cup of tea but this course which the students are offered here taught not only how to perform it correctly but also made it possible to work out on a field, this is negotiation and selling skills. Students were asked to try out a sales drive where they were given passes for Kanyathon and to sell it out on the field which also encouraged people to help for the unprivileged girls by running for them and donating for their bright future. Students learned the idea of selling and applied on the streets which made them feel interesting and some things besides books and readings. They got to view their own will power of doing something extraordinary. This sales drive gave them a confidence of doing and trying out something beyond their thinking in the particular course.
