Recent evidence suggests that there is a strong emotional component to ADHD. Folks with ADHD often have a difficult time regulating their emotions and when they are faced with overwhelm, they can have “angry outbursts” that hurt their relationships.

Men with ADHD are especially prone to frustration and anger for a number of reasons. It is possible that these males feel worthless, guilty, and ashamed. Expressions of anger may stem from not feeling lovable, feeling out of control, or rejected.

Here are some tips for you to follow:

> Be aware of early-warning signs. Give yourself a “time out.” Find a safe spot for yourself and try deep breathing to calm down. Close your eyes and breathe all the stress out.

> Give yourself a break. Go for a walk, get some exercise. Fresh air will do you good. Later you can come back to the problem from a new perspective and solve it!
