What is irritability?
Irritability can appear because of a variety of reasons, and it can manifest as an emotional outburst. Impatience,
outbursts of anger, verbal or physical violence, lack of judgement or general restlessness are only some of the external symptoms of this condition. Irritability is rightfully considered a negative trait because it makes irritable people react in reckless, aggressive ways that can escalate to the point of complete insanity.
Psychology distinguishes between two types of people: A and B. People in category A tend to express impatience, aggression, cynicism and contempt and even have occasional tantrums. Category B does not have these features.
Psychologists believe that people in category A are at a higher risk of suffering from heart disease and neuropsychological problems. They are also more prone to illegal activities and involvement in crime.
What causes irritability?
It is believed that irritability or impatience are permanent traits of character or an outburst that happens because of one particular event, but it is not so. There are various physical and psychological causes that can always turn anyone into an “irritable” person.
Hormonal imbalance, a condition when your body produces too many hormones such as cortisol or adrenaline will cause you to be irritable and impatient. Different neurological problems can increase the chances of being “on edge”. Social problems, pressure of making a living and being in a relationship can lead to more cases of impatience. It was found that physical factors like addiction, sexual deprivation, or obesity can also reinforce this behavior.
Natural solutions to treat irritability
When most people who suffer from irritability decide to take care of this problem, they choose to treat it in one of the two traditional ways: by going to a doctor or a psychologist. Pharmaceutical or psychological treatment can solve multiple problems and have been proven to be effective both scientifically and in terms of observed behavior.
At the same time, there are natural remedies and specific ways of life that can be adopted and applied, and if we are persistent in using them, we will be able to lower the amount of nervousness without needing external help.
