Early Warning Signs

Photo entitled Yotsuba: Tagged!? by flickr user Manic*Anger is often experienced physically as the body reacts to the interpretation of the situation.

Here are some common cues which may indicate that a person is becoming angry:

• Tensed body

• Clenched teeth

• Increased intensity of speech or behavior

• Unkind words or the tone of voice changes to whining or yelling

• Restlessness, withdrawal, unresponsiveness, or being easily provoked

• Noises with the mouth like growls or deep breathing

• Pouting

• Squinting, rolling the eyes, or other facial expressions

Becoming aware of these kind of cues can help a person to identify that they are feeling anger and take steps to deal with it appropriately.
