When we get angry, adrenalin is produced that goes racing through our bodies because it has been alerted danger is imminent. It is adrenalin that enables people to perform superhuman acts in crisis situations, such as lifting a car off of a young child. So you need to get rid of that excess energy soaring through your body that's causing “your blood to boil.” If possible, go outside and take a brisk walk, go for a run, head for the gym or a workout room. Release that energy and cool your head. Then you can think clearly and will be better able to make appropriate decisions rather than rash decisions made in the heat of the moment.
