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.

Holi Celebration @ VU!

Sagar Urs G, MBA, JAGSoM

As we know in many states of our country, the festival of Holi begins the next day after people burn pyres of wood which marks the end of evil “Holika” on the previous night. At Vijaybhoomi too on 6th of March, we celebrated the victory of good over evil.

Students of Vijaybhoomi University celebrated the festival of colors on 7th of March which brought back the excitement and enthusiasm that they had as a kid.

Holi is one of the significant hindu festivals and is celebrated with lots of joy. Many cultures come together for the festival to eat, dance, play and have a good time.

Holi’s traditions vary throughout the country and have their roots in Indian mythology. In many places the festival is associated with the legend of Hiranyakashipu, a demon king in ancient India. Hiranyakashipu enlisted the help of his sister Holika, to kill his son, Prahlada, a devoted worshiper of vishnu. In an attempt to burn Prahlada, Holika sat with him on a pyre while wearing a cloak that protected her from the fire. But the cloak protected Prahlada instead and Holika burned. This is celebrated as a triumph of good over evil. In many places in India, a large pyre is lit on the night before holi to celebrate this occasion.

Lastly, what we all must remember is that good always wins over evil and we all as humans should do good for the society and for our people. 

  Student Quotes    


Playing Holi with my friends at the university was really fun. It was a short yet fun break from daily life.”
