When you get mad, do you ever shake from head to toe? Do your knees knock or your teeth chatter or your voice quaver? If so, you’re in good company. People who are in control of their emotions almost never shake when they get mad. In fact, it’s the people who shake when they get mad that give others the idea that getting mad is a scary and perhaps dangerous thing to do. These same people probably also yelp, shriek, or make other weird noises when they get mad. They also probably tend to punch things rather than just say what’s on their minds. Why is this? What makes some people shake and quiver and twitch when they get mad as though they are possessed by demons?
Why Do I Shake When I Get Mad?
Your body shakes when you get mad because your body is responding to your emotions. Your body is preparing for fight or flight. This causes your body to release stress hormones and adrenaline into your system. Your blood pressure rises and your heart rate increases. This preparation for fight or flight is designed to help you deal with dangerous situations. It helps you react quickly and appropriately to danger.
What Is The Cause Of Shaking When You Get Mad?
You’re Actually Scared Or Anxious
If you’re feeling angry and shaking, it’s important to ask yourself why. Sometimes, we get angry because we’re actually scared or anxious. So if you find yourself shaking when you’re mad, but you have no idea why try thinking about why you might be anxious or scared instead. For example, if you’re mad at your boss and you’re shaking before you go into their office, it may be because you’re actually scared about what they’ll say. What’s more, if you’re mad about something and you’re shaking, it could be because you’re anxious about how the situation will play out. This can often happen in arguments, for example. If you’re mad about something that your partner did, but you’re actually anxious about how they’ll react, then you’re shaking may be a result of that anxiety.
You Have A Physical Condition
Physical conditions can cause shaking when you’re mad. For example, if you have Parkinson’s disease, you might notice shaking when you’re angry, even though it’s not related to your anger at all. Similarly, if you have a heart condition, you might have trouble controlling your emotions, and you may shake when you’re feeling really mad. If you have a physical condition that causes shaking, you should seek medical advice to get treatment. It’ll help you control your emotions better, and your shaking should stop. If you think you might have a physical condition that’s causing your to shake when you’re mad, it’s best to see your doctor. They might be able to help you get treatment or start working towards a diagnosis.
You’re Actually Shaking From Frustration Or Disappointment
Feeling angry can sometimes make you shake from frustration. You might be so mad or frustrated that you can’t bring yourself to speak or otherwise communicate that emotion. Instead, you may find yourself shaking uncontrollably. If you’re mad because of a broken promise or something else that you feel is a breach of trust, you might be shaking because you’re actually disappointed. This can often happen in romantic relationships. If your partner breaks a promise to you or lets you down in some way, you might be mad and shaking because you’re disappointed in them. Similarly, if you’re mad because someone treated you poorly, you might be shaking because of how disappointed you feel. If you’re mad and shaking because of frustration or disappointment, you need to take a step back. Remember that anger is a response to a situation, not a person. By taking a step back and acknowledging that you’re angry because of a situation, you can get control of your emotions and stop shaking.
It Could Be A Bipolar Responding
People with bipolar disorder are at greater risk of shaking when they’re angry. This is known as bipolar responding. You might have bipolar responding if you have bipolar disorder and you notice that you shake when you’re angry. If this happens, you need to be careful. Shaking when you’re angry can make the situation worse because it can make you appear threatening. It’s also important to know that if you have bipolar responding, it doesn’t mean that you are bipolar. Instead, it means that you have a reaction to anger that’s more extreme than it should be. If you have bipolar responding when you’re angry, you should talk to a doctor about it. They may be able to suggest ways of dealing with the shaking that doesn’t make the situation worse.
How To Control Shaking When You Get Mad
When you’re angry, your breathing gets shallow, and that can make you shake. Deep breathing calms the mind and helps you to control your reactions. It’s best to do this when you’re not in the middle of the situation that’s upsetting you. That way, when you get back to the situation, you’ll be relaxed and ready to deal with it thoughtfully. Some people recommend a four-part breath. Others prefer a five-part breath. Find what works best for you. You can practice these breathing exercises wherever you are – while driving in the car while sitting at your desk at work, or even while you’re waiting in line at the store. If you can use this breathing technique whenever you start to feel yourself getting angry, it will help you keep your cool and prevent you from shaking.
Channel your anger into something else
Sometimes, the best way to channel your anger is to channel it into something else. If you channel your anger into something else and don’t give it time to build up so much, you won’t feel angry at all. For example, if you’re angry with a co-worker who always criticizes you, you can channel that anger by going home and working on a craft project. You can do crossword puzzles, do some gardening, or even go for a long walk. Anything that keeps your mind off your anger and keeps you from being around the person who makes you mad will help you control your shaking and keep you from exploding. You can also channel your anger into something constructive and then use that to help you stay calm. You can write a letter to the person who makes you mad and then never send it or you can even write a blog post or article about why you’re angry. Something like that can help you to calm down and keep you from shaking.
Sometimes, if you want to keep from shaking, it’s best to visualize a situation going better than it really did. For example, if you got really angry at a meeting, try to visualize the meeting going better than it did in real life. What if you could rewind the meeting and say what you wanted to say when you first thought of it? What if you could say it more calmly than you actually did? What if you could get your point across without shaking at all? That’s what visualization is for – to help you calm down so you can keep from shaking. Visualization works best if you do it before you’re in the confrontation. That way, when you’re actually in the confrontation, you have imagery to keep from shaking and help you stay calm and stay in control. You can also visualize the aftermath of the confrontation, like how you wish it could have gone but didn’t. That can help you stay calm and not shake so much when the confrontation is actually going on.
Find a safe place to let it out
If the only way to keep from shaking when you’re angry is to let it out, that’s okay. But find a safe place to do it. You don’t want to break things or hurt yourself. You can punch a pillow, hit a punching bag, or even just have a kickboxing match with a friend. You can also scream into a pillow or even just a piece of paper. What matters is that you let all of your anger out, so it stops building up and causing you to shake. You can also write down all your angry thoughts. Even if you never send your angry letter to the person you’re mad at, writing it down can help you to calm down. Find a safe place to do this and then once you’re done, don’t worry about it. Let it go and then try to focus on keeping yourself calm so you don’t shake.
Shaking when you’re angry can be a scary thing if you don’t know what’s happening. When we get angry, the sympathetic nervous system is triggered. This causes our bodies to react by increasing heart rate, blood pressure, and blood sugar. When we shake when we’re angry, it’s a sign that our bodies are responding to the situation. When we are angry, it’s important not to let the anger take control of our emotions. Instead, it’s better to calm down and try to think about positive things that make us feel good. Now that you know why we shake when we’re angry, it’s time to find a solution.
