As a natural emotion that everyone experiences in life,anger is in many cases a perfectly healthy emotion.Anger can motivate(激发) people to make very positive changes in their lives.Sometimes we have to be angry at injustice(不公正),or even at nature,before we can do what needs to be done to correct wrongs or make things better.But of course,that is not what we usually think of anger.

Most people think of anger as an emotion we must keep under control.Parents tell a child to “get control” of himself when the child shows anger.Children are sometimes sent to their rooms or punished for expressing anger in an extreme way.We may be angry with friends or at work,but we know it is usually not suitable to show it.We have to control the anger or suffer what may be the negative consequences.Very early in life,we learn that anger is something that must be controlled.We learn this for a good reason.We know that uncontrolled anger can lead to fights,car accidents,bad relationships with others,unacceptable social behavior,and many other problems.

Many experts say that if one holds his anger in,it can even lead to severe mental and physical health problems.So what can we do to understand and calm this natural emotion that we call anger?

Experts offer many solutions to harmful anger.Some of these solutions include expressing your feelings and talking about what has caused the anger with someone you trust,avoiding a situation that causes anger,beating a pillow,exercising more and many other methods.Whatever solution one chooses,it is good to know that by trying to find the solution to the problem of anger,the first step in the right direction to solving the anger problem has been taken.
