…In a new approach to a misunderstood emotion, the authors focus on decoding anger’s messages and exploring the possibility that anger, mindfully used, can be a tool for growth into higher realms……..It’s unusual to find anger and spirituality explored in tandem, and the combination finds an effective, if simplified, presentation here. “Anger can act as a pathway to the core of our souls, which is unconditional love,” posit the authors…………Highlighting the concept that outward imbalances are reflections of inner issues, this book’s unique focus stems from “persuading your mind to believe that you are part of one, divine energy” while “gaining knowledge of … divinity through scientific information. It’s a unique and useful perspective for self-help shelves.

Anger and Your Sleep Health
There is a direct relationship between how well you sleep and your threshold for irritation and anger. If you cannot sleep well whether it is because of insomnia or other sleep disorders, you will feel fatigued during the day and have little energy. As a result of this, there is a strong likelihood that you will feel irritated and angry even at the demands of a normal routine. Lack of sleep due to sleep disorders is also related to a host of illnesses such as heart disease, depression, a weakened immune system, risk of infections, heartburn, and impotence.
Although underlying sleep disorders can make you irritable and angry, you can also start a cycle of disturbed and insufficient sleep by harboring resentment and anger. A number of studies have confirmed that chronic insomnia is often due to suppressed anger. Depression is a very common reason for sleep disturbance. Note that depression is anger turned inwards. Any resentment can cause a downward spiral of insufficient sleep. The more anger you experience during the day, the more sleep difficulties you will face at night.
